Part of it is cash, since I'll be stepping off a flight from Spain. After a week of sun, sea and the other I'll be needing my rest too, I'm not as young as I used to be, not sure my liver can take a weekend with you lot after that ;)

I can't quite face travelling from Spain, then London to Manchester, then the travel from Manchester to Aberdeen a day or two later. Just too much faff for one trip.

I've now booked in at my usual hotel for 2 nights (Friday & Saturday), it has cost £168 in total which I'll be splitting with a mate so not a bad price at all really.
If you are planning on staying over be sure to book now as the prices shoot up a dramatic amount close to the event.

Just need to book my tickets for the expo now and start arrangements for my potential green haired costume :wink:

My attendance depends entirely on my terminally ill father in law's health that weekend.

I of course want to be there, a few really cool guys on here i have met a few times will be there (archaic koala, rupert) and no doubt many others, including my mate paul.

In the end though, father in law comes first, i probably wont know until a lot closer to the time, still debating if i should buy tickets on the door or get them now and be prepared to sell or sacrifice (if i cant go i wont care about any money lost)

I finally purchased my ticket for this yesterday. I hope the organisers do stick to the 10am early entry for ticket holders and it doesn't become the yearly cluster***k of none ticket holders getting in first :wink:

Just over a month to go! should really get cracking on my costume... Lets' go!

Really looking forward to this now. Blackpool was excellent this year. I went to the very first Play expo and didn't rate it but it's so much better now.

And the Trafford Centre is just a short walk away and they've got a Five Guys in there. So that's lunch sorted.

Checked calendar, should be there, went with my son last year which gave me a different perspective on things! He was drawn to the arcade cabs as he has access to a lot of the other stuff already.

i think we should put something in place so we can recognise eachother 8) i really enjoy meeting you guys.

but

i forsee a problem :?

i am awaiting laryngeal surgery, so, i might not have a voice :cry:

I am not going to let that stop me from going, if I get my phone out mid conversation, I am not being ignorant, its how I communicate in noisy places, its that or write things down, and my handwriting is appalling. I might have had the surgery by then (doubt it), if I have I will be forced to be completely silent for a week afterwards.

If I am there look for a short, podgy guy with glasses, mid 30s with spiky brown hair, probably with a tall ginger guy (if he is coming) and almost certainly with a very tall blonde guy with a wolverhampton/black country accent. I am very useful at helping you find things nearby (food, pub etc)
