The new hall is indeed much larger than the area they had last time. It took me 10 minutes to find Dave when I arrived this morning to help out. Back tomorrow to help out again.

I know, was there last year, the event took up about three quarters of the space available. :wink:

Only downer is the drive up there! But it is well worth the effort :D No Milton this year :( AND no supermario/meaty/stevie :( :cry:

But - I am bringing Nakamura up (and only just found out he lives about a mile away from me :lol: ) - there is room for Daran too so we may have to kidnap him on the way :lol:
Hopefully should be arriving direct to Event City between 8pm & 9pm (as usual) - so any final bits that need sorting... we'll help out :D

Now, where did those staff t-shirts go :?

Well... as I type stuff and smile, I insert whatever expression is on my face at the time. Looking at that though, maybe I was OTT! I have typed this with a very bland looking face :|

Will be setting off at about 5.30am tomorrow as I like to take my time. Aiming to be there for 8am.

Looking forward to meeting everyone again. Make sure you come over and say Hello. You can't miss me :wink:

Looks like hopefully I should now be coming. :D

What's the deal with volunteering? I thought that I would have received an e-mail after volunteering last year but haven't received anything.

I enjoyed doing it last year so would like to offer my services again.
