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: I'm a typical, fat, bearded, ugly heavy metal bastard I'm a very nice person though Here's Easterling Capt: 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!
