I'm definitely going, I just need to get a hotel booked. The Premierinn I stopped in last year was pretty good plus it meant I could stuff my face on the amazing breakfast buffet :lol:

I hope to catch you there again Flatapex :)

it wouldn't be an event if i didn't catch up with you dude, got a lot to catch up on :D those breakfast buffets were the stuff of legend, fried eggs and hash browns *drool*, havent found anywhere to equal them yet.

edit- i've booked my accomodation, we arent staying at the premier inn as it would have been over £250 including breakfast, where we are staying is half that, we arent taking the car this time, we are arriving friday and going home monday.

i work on the salford/manchester border and to get the train from near work is an hour and 20 mins direct, worked out that in 2 hours i could leave my desk, get the train, get to blackpool, get to where i am thinking of staying, check into my room, order food and be taking the first sip of my pint. irony is i can barely do that here and i only live 10 miles from work :lol:
Could even book a half day on the tuesday and commute in from blackpool :lol:

The more i think about it, the more i want to book it :lol:

I'm more of a poached egg fan myself :lol:
I'm probably going to book mine tonight, I'm going to arrive early Friday afternoon and leave sometime Sunday afternoon. I'll be booking in at the same Premier Inn as last year

anyone that wants help looking for accomodation, please let me know. I won't be available much the week before, plus I am working away the Thursday before, and finding decent accomodation takes time. Hopefully previously helped people will be able to testify that I am reasonably useful lol
