    Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls!

    The moment that you have been waiting for is finally here. It with surpassing pride and joy that I announce to you today the coming of something truly special:

    [​IMG]

    That’s correct, Nerd Day returns for its third event on 27th and 28th May 2011 at the Kapow Toys Store in Norwich, UK.

    As always there is no entry fee, just turn up, be cool, and enjoy the day. Attendees can expect food and drink, to be able to trade and buy from other attendees without hideous postal charges, discounts at the discretion of Red Leader/Andy, fun and frolics of all kinds, and the company of some very cool dudes that just happen to be Transformers fans, too.

    I hope to see you all there!

    Shockscream,
    Chairman and President-for-Life of Nerd Day

    Update: 1st May 2011
    We are at our limit for attendees. Therefore, I regret to say we cannot accept any more requests to come. Can I ask that all people that have already expressed a desire to come confirm for definite that they will be in attendance. If you have expressed a desire but are undecided, please confirm one way or the other as soon as possible. A simple post in this thread will do. It's so we can get going on food and drinks and entertainment. Please post whether you are coming or not and, if you are coming, on which day. Thanks fellas!

    27th and 28th? Is it normally a two-dayer?
    Well, now since I finally got my fat arse to the Kapow shop a month or so ago and now know where I'd be going I have firm intentions to attend this time. I'm not the richest of people but I might be able to at least dig out some stuff for potential trades since the opportunity is there to be had.
    It'll be nice to put some names to faces in person. That said I'm farking awful at remembering names. I promise to only take up the space of two people. Or one and a half if I hold my gut in.
    What time does it start? I'd wanna nab one of those two parking spaces out front.

    Whoop. Whoop. Count me in. (Which totally jinxes it. My legs will explode the day beforehand.)

    Running around the office with my arms out making airyplane noises.

    It more than likely will be the final one in the shop, yes. However, the plan is to continue with Nerd Days at the new warehouse location. ND4 is a long way off, though. That will deffinitely be a post-AA event.

    I'm normally about the day before and I know some people are as well so this time we're saying "If you're around swing by". The actual main thrust of it (if you'll pardon the expression) is going to be on 28th.

    Trading's no problem, bring what you like and offer it around. I'm keenly aware that doing some sales at the event means money for petrol. I ended up with a Windcharger, Incinerator, and some of the old Ladybird books from ND2.

    We start at 10am. A few stay overnight at the Travelodge on Queens Road (at least I think that's where it was). I shall be there again for ND3.

    Such things are encouraged at Nerd Day.

    You are excused. :lol 

    Please do, mate! Come and join the revelry.

    You are excused as well. See you and ninety at AA!

    And you are forgiven.


    As always folks, if there are questions, post 'em up. Or PM me. Or even email at dxu783@bham.ac.uk. There's a group up on Facebook, too; search for Nerd Day. You'll know it when you see it.

    Doubtful I'd get the time off work for this one Davey boy. Which is a bugger cos teh last ND was OSSUM!

    Instead I shall send my dead Jedi ghost to attend and lurk in Andy's toilet, passing out sage advice to all who enter.

    Ta fer the answers. The 28th is a Saturday and there's a couple of car boot sales I always go to but if the start's 10am then that should give me time to whip around the stalls early trying to scoop up bargains and still make it to ND3 in time. But it might be fun to poke my nose in on the 27th as well and try and get some pre-introduction to anyone hanging there as it's usually a bit daunting coming into an established group for the first time and I've not really mixed much here online either. Of course it would also be embarrassing to turn up too early.

    Dude, that's one of the best parts of the day! Bring all you can. Just a shame it's almost certain I won't be able to attend.

    Gingerchris - don't worry, I've never met anybody here (apart from simond and tikgnat) before.

    Shockscream - have sent a request to be part of the FB group.

    Will definitely bring toys to trade.

    nellie131, how are you intending to get down, train or driving? I live about 30 miles out so if I do end up coming down would you be interested in carpooling? if we split the cost of petrol it would work out cheaper than taking the train or what have you.
