    I hope to be at Cheshunt by about 12noon, maybe sooner if I can get a better connection from London on the tube. Hope to see some of you there!

    As for people moaning about a 6am or 7am start, you're all wimps. I've been getting up at 6am to get to work every day for the last three weeks, including Saturday! ;)

    Is that location an time correct? I may see if I can make it. It's 3am now so that may be wishful thinking. But I can give it a shot. If I'm there my shirt will have the SW logo on the front an the Ep IV opening crawl on the back.

    Had a great day :D

    Really nice meeting everyone, new and old faces. The show was quite busy too, and the Westminister film students added a really nice element to it too. A few of us (not me though) were interviewed, so watch this space ;)

    We have some photos to post later too, but it's been quite a tiring day so they may have to wait :p

    Here's one photo for you all;
    After the guest talk, the MC (Graham) wanted to do a group photo with all the guests and Matt & Koren in their Storm/Scout Tropper gear, so here it is :D

    Steve, please send me some of your photos from the day (inc. the pub afterwards) and I'll get them up here. Cheers :)

    I had a great time yesterday, lovely to meet everyone, especially some of the non-FanForce friends, who I've known for years. The event itself wasn't particularly good but I no longer do these shows for that reason; I take them as an opportunity to catch up with friends and have a good time.

    It was better than the last one, though that wouldn't have been a difficult task at all.

    Frankly, I was embarrassed to be at the last one, given the amount of stalls, the calibre of guests, and members of the public who made Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons look like Brad Pitt/Johhny Depp.

    Me and Koren had a good time but were a little disappointed by the lack of people there and the fact that they started packing up at about half two. Nice to see everyone though. Ell, nice to finally meet you :)
    Matt, you need to get yo' ass round ours sometime soon so we can give you your monkeys ;)
    Kassy, could you send us any photo's you might have of us please. Cheers.
    Jamie, go to http://www.melinfoi.com and go to the gigs page for details. :)

    Don't worry Matt, I will pay you a visit either next week or the week after. I have a serious lack of spare time right now and need to visit my Uncle next week too.

    Good luck with the gig, wont be able to make it but let me know how it goes [face_peace]
