12 days to go.

Question: What time does everyone intend to be at the AVP?

I have to go to South Wales on Sat afternoon so I will be attending the AVP in the morning.

It was said once everyone arrived, the plans are to go to Level 13 on the car park to join up with the others at a predetermined time.

Any decision from the organiser as to what will be the predetermined time?

Whats happened at past meets is every one heads down to the airport pub later in the afternoon after having been to the AVP, not sure what the protocol will be this year though with people looking to meet on L13 etc...

OK

Just wondering what to do here.
There will be myself, My lad Simon ( formerly known as Eurotrans 3111) and my Partner John ...yes he,s finally woke up and realised what he's been missing all this time  Wink .
We should arrive early Saturday Morning. Im still trying to sort out the hotel at the moment. Bewley's are booked solid so no chance there Sad.
I will have room for 1 possibly 2 people in my car if transport is needed at a push for any reason.

Hey TFS
Would certainly like to join in the meal at the Romper if possible. I know this is a bit late but I,ve only just joined back up with Anet after months away .
If its possible, it'll mean 3 extra mouths to feed.
Now to get that hotel sorted.. I hope!!  crossfingers  .
Will let you know a.s.a.p. I hope I don't run into any problems.
SEE YA'LL THERE

Change of plan for me, will now only be there on the Saturday and don't think I'll be attending the meal either. Also, not stopping in the hotel overnight anymore. Think another attendee may also have the same change to make but I'll leave them to confirm this for themselves!

Lew, please could you update my details on the list the next time you have a trawl through?

My folks, being the paranoid and overly overprotective people that they are (somewhat understandably since this is the first time Ive been turned loose alone to wreak havoc on other countries  Wink ) decided to rent me an international cell phone for my trip, and I just got it today...its a UK-based number, if any of you guys want it to coordinate stuff in case I get lost or stranded or somethin like that after arrival in MAN, PM me and I'll pass it along...

Almost time, gettin psyched here!
