Yeah, the gift idea sounds really good. And I like the idea of having a Xmas lunch
It's Â£6.49 for two meals, I checked on that today. The menus are good.
Cobra: yes, yes you must.
Cobra, I swear, if you're not coming I'll put a curse on you or something... no seriously mate, I have three *beep* deadlines december 15th, and still the only thing keeping me from not coming is if I should be abroad. Just organize yourself... (I know, easier said than done)
Haha, fine, I'll do my hardest. I've got 2 of the 3 pieces of coursework I had done, now I need to do lots of revision for AS Retakes, but other than that, I should be okay for it now. I just need to figure out when the train leaves Salisbury for Portsmouth
A quick note on trains. If you're coming by train, you'll need the Portsmouth & Southsea station. That's where we're meeting.
Well, if you're all doing the whole weekend, I can't do both days. I'd probably just go on the saturday. I'd just need to catch the 8am bus into town, then catch a 10am train or something to get there by about 12pm
I know the trains sometimes are slow but I don't think it will take you two hours to get from Salisbury to Portsmouth! You can check train times [link=http://www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk]here[/link]. I think from memory its about an hour from Salisbury to Portsmouth and trains run hourly (this is the Cardiff to Portsmouth line).
I can either do the whole weekend or just the Saturday. What I will try and do is get down to Portsmouth on the Friday night as it's too long a trip to make from MK on the day.
If we are meeting at Portsmouth & Southsea station, what are the plans for the day mousemouse?
Well, judging by this timetable I could probably get there by about 10:45 What time to leave though? The last bus back to my village from Salisbury is at 5:35pm, but I could go up to my dad's place, I suppose
Here's an idea for the day:
meet up and make sure everyone who's coming is there
shopping for drinks and snack foods
back to mine for a film or two (unless or someone elses)
possibly dinner after that
If we're going to do the gift thing, we can swap them while we're waiting for the food to arrive.
Hi guys, I could arrive at 12:45 at Portsmouth & Southsea. I will be going back to Plymouth the same day as well, the last train leaves at 19:27. It's not much time with you... but it just takes so loooong to get anywhere (except maybe Exeter and Penzance) from here. And I will have to work on sunday.
That's ok, I'm sure we can fit in a film before you have to leave.
Someone will have to bring something though as I don't have any films with me.
Do you have a DVD player though? I've got a fairly substantial collection of films and I am sure I can bring a few that will appeal to everyone.
I like the plans for the day, sounds good
When you need to me to alter the title and stick a link in the top announcement area, let me know
Wonder if we could get Hal to send his TENCLO dvd down so you can watch that too?
I have my laptop which has a DVD player, it's a bit temermental though so it's not guarenteed to work. I should have my new computer by then which will have a DVD player, if it doesn't then my old one does and we can use the new monitor with it.
Okay, I'll see what DVD's I can bring with me.
Was there a time set for us all meeting on the Saturday? And I presume that we're meeting at Portsmouth & Southsea station? Do you have a particular meeting point in mind?
As close to 12:45 would be good. I'll be waiting there from when the first person turns up.
If everyone who's definately coming can PM me, I'll give you my phone number in case you arrive and I'm not there.
The ticket barrier would be a good place to meet, we can spot people as they turn up.
Sounds like a good plan I will aim to get to Pompey on the Friday night and its quite easy for me to get to P&S so will be there for 12.45!
It's not too late to put my name down for this meet is it
Of course not! You will be more than welcome
Just in case, it's the 9th of december, 12:45-ish, portsmouth and southsea station.
Have PMed Tim to change the thread title so it's easy to see this.
Id really like to go, but as its coming up to xmas I really cant afford another train journey so soon after g-mex.
Plus it would take me 3 hours to get there and 3 hours to get back, so I wouldnt have much time with you all anyway.
Sorry guys, its just meets will have to go on hold for me until after xmas.
Ok i will be there.
...I'd just like to point out and earn general sympathy, I'll be stuck in the train for about 5 hours... each way.
but it's understandable that for a student it's not always easy with money so it's fine, we'll meet you some other time...!
I'm looking forward to it.
edit: cool, jac! and welcome to the south
Thank you for the welcome marte.
Got room for an Isle of Wighter?
Not been on the boards that much lately ( PC has been down for the kast 8 months ) but it would be great to put a face to a few names.
