    CrazyMike and Mrs Mike are visiting from Canada (He's one of the Canadian RSAs) and so LAJ and I will be in town for a meet-up. We're meeting at 1300 at Boneapart's Bar at Waterloo Station followed by....well I don't know what we'll be doing. Hanging about, chatting etc. Might go to some shops or a museum.

    So you guys are all invited. It'd be great to finally meet some of you!

    I might possibly be able to attend for a couple of hours, depending on my working times.

    A trip to Forbidden Planet is definitely on the list. And a meal in Chinatown has been suggested. I won't be around for much of the evening though as I want to catch the train back around 7pm or so. I'll be on my own so I really don't want to travel too late.

    If you're not familiar with Waterloo Bonaparte's is near the Ladies loo, up in the Track 16/17 area. (Hopefully it's still there. I haven't been to Waterloo since CE in 2007). I'll probably try to get in around 12-12;30 pm, depending on SouthWest trains. If anyone goes into Waterloo regularly, can you let us know if the place is still there and still has the same name?

    Would it be possible to join in? :) I used to be a member of the Swedish Fanforce but I moved to England last year and it would be nice to meet fellow fans.

    And I think Amber and I met years ago in Paris and London :).

    You'd be more then welcome emilsson. I think we must have met at the 2005 Stockholm Euro meet too.

    I'm not sure if I can make May 9th as I have a planned trip to the theatre in the evening, but I might be able to pop along for an hour or two before dashing off.

    Yes we met a couple of years back.

    Chances are I wont be able to make it. I'm working very late on Friday (probably wont get home until 3am if I'm lucky) and need to dedicate my energy to the theatre on Saturday.

    Have fun :D

    Due to engineering works on the underground I've realised my travelling will take longer time. But I'll try to arrive at Waterloo between 12.30 and 1pm.

    Well, in the end there were 5 of us - Mike, Amber, hal, emilsson, and me. After meeting at Bonaparte's and having a round, we went to Forbidden Planet. I picked up a few items and managed to get out of there just spending ££ instead of £££. The rest of the day basically turned into a pub crawl. We had some food at The Imperial pub (on a side street off Leicester Square). I was pretty tired by the time I caught the train home about 750 pm. In the last pub we stopped in they had the London Irish v Harlequins rugby match on TV, and it had ended not long before the train I was on stopped in Twickenham. So there was a train invasion by a ton of rugby fans in green. They were good-natured though as their team had won and there weren't any problems in my part of the train. All in all, I had a great time. Mike and Amber are on the plane home today and I assume hal caught a coach back north. (He was staying with his brother last night).

    I'm pleased that you all had a good time. I apologise for not being able to make it too. It would have been very nice meeting up with you all.

    Hope Mike & Jeannette have a safe flight back.

    Indeed, looks to have been a great meetup. :)

    Out of interest will there be a park meet this summer?

    Cheers,
    Ram
