I'm only going to be able to go to the Sunday of the Blackpool weekend, is there any forum meetup planned? Would be nice to say hi to a few faces.

Hi All,

As my Wife and I are staying at The Imperial - it would be good to know details about the Friday Night Film Show and if anything is happening on Saturday afternoon before the Convention on Sunday.

I think this year of all years, particularly as we have colleagues from across the pond coming over for the event, we should make a concerted effort to take some "forum group" photographs. I have met so very few people from this forum but they have been a wonderful source of help and information that it would be great to say "Hi" in person.

Sounds like a good place as it will between the main hall and the cinema.

Midday in the foyer on Sunday sounds great! Shorty, if I see you I'll make sure you're in the right place!

Hi Joe, (shorty)
When you get to Blackpool train Station ask a station staff member or
perhaps a police man etc for directions to the beach front,it's not far.
when you are at the beach front look out to sea,then turn to your right
you are now facing North,walk along the beach front after about half a mile you will see the Grand Hotel (formerly the Hilton) it's a tall modern looking building set in it's own area.
If this is too far grab a cab he'll take you straight there.
Hope this be of some use to you see next week-end.

Regards

Dave Watson
don't forget you are booked in for the Convention dinner on Saturday Night. Starts about 7.30 pm
