    With only a week left before AA, I thought it was about time with a thread like this!

    As I wrote in the "Auto Assembly 2008 announced!" thread, it would be fun to meet up with a bunch of TFWers for a pint or twelve, and some general chatting. It's always fun to meet people IRL and put a face to the name!

    As I see it we have a few choices:

    1. People who arrive in Birmingham on Friday August 1st can meet up at the Clarendon Suites when picking up their early-bird registration packs. No heavy drinking that night though (at least not for me) as AA starts the morning after.

    2. Me and Easterling Capt arrive in Birmingham on Friday morning and then we'll go check in at our hotel immediately (We're staying at the Birmingham on Golden Hillock Rd.) so we have the entire afternoon available. We'll probably go toy hunting in downtown Birmingham and anyone wanting to join may feel free to do so :) 

    3. We gather at the Clarendon Suites after AA has ended on Saturday night and go drinking 'til we puke our guts out!

    Here's what I look like:

    [​IMG]

    I'm a typical, fat, bearded, ugly heavy metal bastard :)  I'm a very nice person though ;) 

    Here's Easterling Capt:

    [​IMG]

    Tall and decent-looking ;) 

    So anyway, look for the short, fat, bearded slob that walks around with a tall, handsome bloke, and you'll find us! :)

    I'm there! Up for a couple of drinks after the con, though not too late since I've got to get a train home at some point in the evening. The last is 11 though so I'll definitely be able to hang out a bit :)

    Not sure if I'm coming on the Fri or Sat yet, and I'm a non-drinker so may well bow out early with the drinking :D  but will be there!

    I'll be there. :D  I'm coming down early (0655 train!) on Saturday morning, staying in Brum and travelling back home on the Sunday. Count me in for drinking. :D  And Locy, I'll have a Piranacon-fist-hunt before then. And I'll bring cash for the Encore Minibots! Mugshot to follow...

    That sounds so rediculously dirty. Or maybe it's in my mind.

    It's a requirement to be on staff, y'know.

    Anyhow, if you see me, come on over and say hi!

    I've got no idea who the guy in the red jumper standing in front of me is, though...
