    It's being organised by Merseytravel, Skywalkers and KOTE. Anyone interested in attending the event and the sci-fi exhibition?

    This is the first weekend of my half term off, so I may be able to do "some" meet like stuff during the week.

    Tough you are coming. This post has spoken! :p

    No worries, had a feeling it'd be more the NW crowd. Shame it ain't a local group doing the costuming tho, it's right in 99th heartland.

    The thing to remember is that a large portion of the KOTE membership are northerners as well, so they are a local group.

    Also, we are attending this as much more than a costuming presence, we have done a large part of the organising as well for the entire event.

    We're short staffed for cooks at the mo, so don't think I'll be able to get the time off for this and the Halloween meets as well.

    Thanks Phill :cool: I actually didn't know they had a strong showing in the North tbh, thought it was more Midlands based, but what with Blackpool and Spaceport, it could have been either people happy to travel or yeah, as you say, more people up North now. As for local for the 99th though, a lot of members are in the Wirral and literaly have to roll out of their beds and they are outside the con lol. It's that close.

    Anyways, good luck with the troop, I may see you there on the Sat, just said the same to Mark.

    Don't worry Coz, Halloween is fine ;)
