    So I figure we should probably have some sort of shenanigans on either the Friday or the Saturday. Probably the Friday, since the Saturday is the "official" con party and we can have shenanigans there as well :D 

    Meeting at 7.30pm on Friday, in the bar in the Holiday Inn. I would imagine look for the guys in TF shirts, I suspect Omnius will be wearing a Blaster t-shirt but I could be wrong, hehe.

    I'll be there unfasionably early on friday afternoon, probably between 2 and 3.
    We could meet in the bar of the holiday inn the con is being held in for starters.

    We're getting there about 2ish but I'm helping Xybertoys with their stall setup first.

    7.30 in the bar sound OK for everyone as a starting point?

    No worries dude, I don't drink either, so you'll have a fellow sober guy :D  All are welcome anyway, so come along!

    Probably :lol  I've already roped Omnius into it, but the more the merrier - I'll check with Aaron and get back to you :D  Cheers mate :D

    I'm on board, won't have to all squeeze in the Lexus this time!!

    Booze @ hotel bar is a fine idea, may be worth a scout around the area about the hotel for places to eat/drink/perform shenanigans at after that too.

    Aww, no Lexus adventure this year? I've lined up a railway station that's wonderfully inconvenient and everything too ;) 

    I'm arriving at around 2-3, depending on if anyone collars me before I can get out the door at work and depending on what the trains are doing (and if I can figure out where I'm going once I get to the station).

    Arrangements for the evening sounds good, better still if there's food involved somewhere along the line. I'm not much of a drinker either CryoFangus, so you're in good company :)

    I'm arriving about half past 12 (need to check tickets lol), going to check out a few places around Brum then give Xybertoys that aforementioned hand setting up. I really should cut down on drinking after recent works night out shenanigans though! :D

    A tour of all the most dodgy, dead-ended, narrow streeted bits of Birmingham is always a possibility with my sense of direction :S

    What?! No Lexus ride?! Maybe I should change my hotel reservation to yet another one in a rural industrial area, just for the fun of it :)  At least we had a good time during the Lexus ride, haha! :)

    My flight gets in at 15.45, so I should be at the hotel by about half four I think.

    I'm surprised at the amount of us that don't really drink! I didn't drink for two years once, thoroughly recommend it :D  I can still hold my own these days, but thinking about it, I've probably only had about four pints in the last three months, that'll all be changing at AA.

    LR: After that message you sent me, and watching Pete's vid, I really can't wait to get there now :lol
