Mega MAN Meet 09: The Aftermath

Mon Jul 06, 2009 1:47 pm

I'm somewhat surprised nobody has started one of these yet! But here it is!

I shall be uploading various incriminating photographs/videos once I've put them on photobucket and the like. I have 906 photos to sort through amounting to 5.5GB!

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing those from other people's cameras!

Thanks all for a fantastic weekend which produced many laughs and drunken banter!

I left for MAN on the Thursday, so these pictures are from LCY, the flight to EDI, spotting at EDI, shots in EDI city, flight from GLA-MAN, spotting at MAN and Concorde tour, Jamo's house party etc, and the flight MAN-LHR. So quite a few! I'm trawling through them at the moment.

It was a very good weekend indeed  Smile

Jordan has my camera with all the pictures (as he was losing his Q400 virginity on the way home) so I'm sure some will pop up on here soon enough!

Special thanks to Daleaholic for the lifts in his very nice smelling car on Friday night, and of course to Jamo for the excellent party on Saturday night  Smile Singstar, huge moths, tons of beer and good tunes - a night to remember!! Will post more later...
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Wow, very few replies so far!

I've just arrived back home, everything was roughly on time and when I left DYFlyer heading to the DLR it was looking like he'd have ample time to get accross to LHR for his flight - hopefully he'll be safely on his way back to OSL now  yes #

I'll now start to edit through my pictures, probably took a similar number to Tom as I filled 4Gb and wasn't shooting RAW. Sorry I missed people on the Sunday, had quite a late night out in MAN so we slept in, then my firend took me for a drive out around Manchester - we got to the airport pub about 4pm and the car park was chocca, saw Luke leaving (sorry for not thinking about asking if you needed a lift to the Terminal btw  Embarrassment ) and then headed off vaguely towards Southside.

I'm not sure about anyone else, but I can't hotlink any images into this thread - it's just not loading them. My first batch of pictures are on FaceBook though and, for those of you not able to acess them there, I've also uploaded them to my site here: http://www.annthiea2009.photos.gb.net/c1722542.html

Hello!

Thanks to everyone for making it a fantastic weekend, especially Trent for arranging the Concorde tour/flight to 'Baa-bay-dus' and Jamo for a great house party! It was good to meet all of you.

Some great photos so far, I have a few that might be worth uploading once edited, although only of aircraft and none of the drunkenness I'm afraid.

Although it was a little watered down compared to previous meets, it was great to see everyone again and even the weather behaved (more or less).

Thanks to Jamo for hosting us on saturday evening and I hope your neighbours were not too pissed off with our Singstar antics.

I do have some pics somewhere so i'll put them on sometime soon.

Yeah, definitely! Stupidly, I only brought my SLR with me to Manchester though and didn't want to carry that around all night. I'm sure there will be loads from other people though.

I'm not sure whether to love or hate some of those pictures, ahh dear!

I would put mine up but unfortunately photobucket has decided I've used too much bandwidth.

Stand by for singstar antics videos!

What an absolutely fabulous weekend.
One not to be forgotten for many reasons; especially Jamo's house party.

I apologise to all people in who's face I put my camera and took unflattering close up photos. I do that when I'm intoxicated  Silly

Can't wait till next year now. MAN meet TwentyTen Big grin

It was no bother at all... I checked online after to see the difference in the prices and we got some kind of weird hybrid of a whole bunch of tours, so we did good  Smile I should ring the woman and thank her for the tour... Monday!

I wish.....thanks to a couple of delays on the wonderful public transport in London i got there two minutes after regular check-in time. And the nice people from SK would not let me check in despite the plane being 2,5 hours late. They would also not let me travel via CPH later that evening. I could just as well been standing there with a ticket from FR.  grumpy  But to look at the bright side, i got an extra night with the nice veiw from Jurys Inn (and a couple of Guinness to drown my sorrows) Big grin
