    I will almost certainly be there for both days, though I'm not sure which days I'll be working around that weekend so I can't confirm my accommodation requirements just yet.

    Depends when the official TST FHT meet is, but if it's on a day I can't make for whatever reason, I'll try and be at Towers on the Sunday (if I can get a lift ahem ahem).

    As luck would have it, I'm on holiday that week, so I'd be up for making this my first trip to Mandyland!

    There will not be an official TST meet to Alton Towers for FHT in 2015, although there will be a mini meet arranged for the first day (Saturday, 14th February).

    :)

    Should be there for Pleasure Beach, work permitting. I can't see more than one visit to Towers over FHT being desirable however.

    Is it always a mini meet for FHT or is it usually official? Also, when you say official meets will be posted tomorrow evening, does that mean the whole meet calendar 2015? I'll most likely be at FHT on the 14th. :)

    No, usually official. I presume so. What ever happened to wait and see?

    No official meet for FHT is a bizarre one really considering it's been a staple of TTF/TST but I'll save those thoughts for when the 2015 meets schedule is announced I guess...

    I really enjoyed this meet last year, so should be up for it, it is my weekend off work and I won't be able to make Feb half term opening meet as i'm working, so will more than likely do both days on this mini meet.
