    I got a Q-you-esh-tee-on:

    Which is it that the "MAIN" thread for a meet-up in the midlands is located in the LONDON forum?:confused:

    The thread was originate and planned by the London chapter, and then they opened up the attendance to the rest of us, making it a regional meet.

    However, there is a separate thread running for it in the main FF-UK forum as well.

    Hate to tell you this guys - but the hotel room at Travelodge (Stoke on Trent) that was £26 has now gone up to £50 (mind you - this is for a family room that sleeps 4 still, if you dont mind sharing).

    Time is of the essence, if you are planning on staying over. Thee rooms do not last long, the closer the date gets, and this hotel is not right next to Alton Towers too (approx 30 mins drive, unless you are with me and then half that :eek: )

    may be paying up for Alton Towers @ £200 in the end (not me though....rather sleep in the car!)....

    over to you - unless of course ayone else has any other ideas or a place to crash near there?

    I have a discount card for Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels - I shall see if I can get anything substantial knocked off ;)

    Any more Londoners heading up? I think the rail companies are doing their usual train/park ticket bundles...

    I'd offer my place to stay in Leicester, but I'm working night shift, so I'm leaving from work straight to Alton Towers on Friday morning so no way to pick anyone up. (I work in Nottingham so it would be the wrong direction. :( )

    Dude, I regularly do a 48 hour run through, so I'll be wide awake for this trip, believe me :D After all, I'll have only been up about 14 hours when we go.

    So, I think it's important to arrange what time we all get to the park. I don't think the rides open till 10am, but it would probably be better to be their earlier and get virtual tickets pretty quick for the rides?


    EDIT: OK, I reckon we should move this discussion to the main regional forum as the number of attendees is beyond just London chapter residents :D We have an active list of about 6 so far for the meet, but hope that more will come :D

    I am sure they will.
    I will watch the news for the inevitable newsflash..

    * Star Wars Geeks Run Riot At Alton Towers.*
    15 people have been seriously hurt in lightsaber related attacks at Alton Towers today.
    A group of people calling themselves 'The FF-UK' have run amok through the grounds, leaving a trail of destruction behind them. The group, many armed with blasters, are believed to have been led by so-called 'High Almighty Emporer Jairen'.
    Snipers have failed, so far, to get a lock on the leader as he is constantly surrounded by his 'minions'. More newsflashes as the situation unfolds.


    Man they are gonna have soooooooo much fun! :_|

    Maybe next time!:D

    A great time was had by all at Alton Towers, check out the main thread on the FF-UK Regional board for photos. Not only was the event a lot of fun, but Midlands completed their second official Meet, and the North had their first. Come on, London, you're starting to fall behind!

    LOL!
