    Yeah I agree that it's better if you become friends with us online first before meeting us in person. It's a great laugh on this forum and you'll definitely make friends in no time @ZeldaAlton :) Just don't give away your Facebook account if you have one. Trust me, you'll regret it :p

    Well well well, what have we got here?

    Having finally got round to purchasing a new MAP after pretty much a full season without one, I am hoping to show my face a bit more this season. I was pretty much non-existant on meets last year aside from the odd mini/unofficial meet here and there, so I can't wait to get back into things and get seeing people again :D

    First up for me should be the Sunday of opening meet, sadly Saturday is a no can do, thanks to a couple of prior engagements! See you all there :D

    I've just booked flights and the hotel for Phantasialand part of the international TS trip. I'll meet everyone when they get to the theme park on Wed 24th Aug

    With many rides being closed at Mandyland yesterday, I'm looking at potentially doing the Merlinpool meet now. Could get some use out of my MAP too! :)

    I had hoped to post the opening weekend meet today, but unfortunately there is a spanner in the works with accommodation. We are discussing this as a team and hope to get the discussion up ASAP!

    It's looking like the only meets I'll be able to do this year will be Scarefest and Fireworks due to work commitments. Hopefully there might be a chance that I could do South meet this year, but that'll have to be judged closer to the time.

    Would be nice to try and show my face a bit more on meets this year!

    I should be able to do all the Alton towers ones on the Saturdays (bar opening weekend as that's my Saturday on at work and we are not getting our MAP till the week after and the Thorpe park one will be awesome to meet some of you.

    Anyone going to South meet who doesn't have an MAP? Want to get in to Thorpe Park for just 12p? This could be the deal for you!
    Limited to only 1871 tickets which go on sale at 10am on Friday 25th March with promo code DBGT1871.

    Hope that is helpful for some!

    :)

    Not that I think it is a bad offer,
    but being an old git I can only say people will be overcharged here...
    A bob was 5 "new" pence,
    but twelve old pennies (d)...
    twelve pennies to the shilling,(or bob),
    then twenty shillings to the pound,
    or 240 pennies to the pound.
    You can see why they went decimal can't you.
    Thorpe are charging over double what they should be,
    but I think we can let them off in the circumstances.

    I'm considering south meet now, with it being the weekend after my exams finish - yay! However I'll probably do Chessie/Lego instead of Paultons on the Saturday. Having a MAP, I can't really justify £25+ for a couple of vekomas and a dinosaur. I have the other credits anyway. :p

    I am confirmed for the South weekend!

    There are a small group of us doing Chessington on the Saturday instead of Paulton's, but we'll be joining the rest of you for Thorpe on the Sunday. We are still staying at Basingstoke Travelodge for the sosche in the evenings.

    Current prices are around £105 for a room for 2 nights!

    :D

    Why would anyone go to Chessington after last year's shambles?
