Good to know another Stopfordian is here! :)

I haven't seen that many Mancunians going to this Expo actually considering how close it is to the Trafford Centre, but it's good to see everyone from other countries getting together for this event! :)

I was watching that, and I thought "that's really quite a big room", then the camera person (who was it? Anyone we know?) kept on walking. Then kept on walking. Then kept on walking some more.

IT'S MASSIVE.

I'd seen the dimensions of the place in numbers, but to see it in video form makes it even better. I'd been wondering if buying a weekend ticket was a good idea, but if there's going to be stuff crammed into that space then I don't think we'll be running out of things to mess around on.

Just over 4 weeks to go :)

Will we be getting more updates and pics of the setting up on the days before?

People tend to get the hills mixed up with the potholes in the roads that are the size of hills

We expect to be selling tickets on the door, but based on the queues in Blackpool and the increase capacity this year you may end up in a big queue (we will have seperate queues for people with tickets and people without)

Hi everyone,

The vid is great and venue looks huge, thanks for posting that!

Ive got the laptop ready to automate a tournament or two that I'll be helping to run again. Looking forward to the massive crowds then and lots of fun when the weekend arrives :)
