  1. the polls are now CLOSED, we shall be visiting alton towers on both days, you have until Sunday, 14th May to let either myself or @Ryan know whether you wish to have a place in a hotel room which shall be at Newcastle-Under-Lyme Travelodge, be prepared to pay your share within a week of that date otherwise we will be unable to book for you! feel free to continue to vote to let us know whether you'd like to visit the waterpark or not! See you there
  2. the only new park I'm going to get to this year is liseberg, which isn't really much to complain about! it's been a goal of mine to get myself to a new park every year for the past three years, and now coming into the fourth it's proving to be a reasonable one also I am excited to find an ikea
  3. Helloo my dears, It is with some degree of delight that I am here to FINALLY present you with the details of the official Alton Towers meet 2017! The current plan is to visit Alton Towers on both days, however I have heard whispers that some may like to visit Drayton Manor once again too, however they are expected to get a big thing in 2018 so it could be worth the wait! As ever though, that's for you forum lot to decide! Due to it being a weekend trip, the date for this weekend is remaining fixed at Saturday 17th June and Sunday 18th June. The plans for this weekend shall be as follows: *SATURDAY* (Alton Towers) 09:30 meet underneath the corkscrew sculpture thing whatever you may call it, the park is due to open at 10am according to the website so this is the time we'll be aiming to get into the park for 10:00-13:00/13:30 we shall be simply going about riding what others wish to ride until we get a bit peckish, at which point we'll split off for lunch, which should last for about an hour 14:00/14:30-17:00/18:00 we'll get back to those rides until park close, some may wish to do the waterpark as has been the case for the past few years, this is stated to be open until 6pm, so please mention in the poll if this tickles your fancy, as then we can get a group of sorts to head off a bit earlier to fit some swimming in, us non-swimmers can find ourselves partaking in a game of mini golf or can hang about the hotel bar area.... I'll definitely be playing golf because I have a mild obsession for it all thanks to a few of the members on this very forum 18:00 onwards we'll probably go off for a bite to eat, this will be an UNOFFICIAL part of the meet and will most likely consist of those who are staying the night before we head back to wherever we'll be staying *SUNDAY* (probably Alton Towers again) Should you all vote for us to have two days of Alton Towers, the structure of the Sunday will look very similar to the structure of the Saturday bar the swimming, golf and meal in the evening as people will most likely want to head straight home after park close. If, however, you all decide you'd like us to visit DRAYTON MANOR instead, this is what that day might look like... disclaimer: I've never been to Drayton before so it's a very rough estimate ok 10:00 meet by the park entrance, the park is said to open at this time however rides don't open until 10:30 so we'll have plenty of time! 10:30-13:00/13:30 it'll be time to get on all the rides that people may choose to ride until yet again we all get peckish and we'll go off for lunch for an ho- you know what I'm going to say I'll stop boring you 14:00/14:30-17:00 we'll get back to those rides after lunch and continue going until park close/everyone gets tired and decides its time to go home. It'll be then time for us all to part ways and head home, it's more than likely people will be simply grabbing a bite to eat at a service station on the way home so there again shall be no organised meal on the sunday a few little notes for the meet... -if you are late, we will NOT wait! Even we've been left behind before, it simply isn't fair on those who make the effort to be there on time, if you're running a bit late or are Marc then we will meet you when you arrive, whether it'll be you finding the group as we stand in a specific place for you or someone running off to fetch you... you will find us eventually, we promise! ** the polls on this topic for where we'll be headed will close in one week, at 10pm on Thursday, 20th April 2017** please read ahead if you are interested in staying over night, be it on either the Friday night, Saturday night, or both (STRICTLY OVER 18s ONLY, we CANNOT take responsibility for any under 18s overnight, but you are more than welcome to join us for the day parts!!) **from this point, you will have EXACTLY ONE MONTH to confirm your attendance to either myself or @Ryan, so you must have given us a definite yes or no by 9pm on SATURDAY, 13TH MAY 2017, otherwise you will NOT be included in the numbers as we try to work out the pricing for the hotel, location is TBC as we will be trying to find the best deal, but you will know after this date (it's always been the Newcastle-Under-Lyme Travelodge and this likely won't change, but it's worth a look ) **we will then price up the rooms and let you all know how much you will be owing if you wish to stay with us on SUNDAY, 14TH MAY 2017, you will then have ONE WEEK to transfer the amount to tpm's paypal, so the payment from you must have been received by us by 9pm on SUNDAY, 21ST MAY 2017, allowing us to make the booking ASAP as neither Ryan nor myself will be able to foot the bill unfortunately **if you don't get back to us in time, you'll have to book your own room, likewise if you have any specific preferences for who you may like to share with, or if you'd even have another hotel in mind! Once the booking has all gone through we'll let you know, there will be a dedicated group chat to keep you all in the loop as I know this is a lot of information to process. If you have any questions or queries do not hesitate to ask. Sadly I may not be able to get back to you ASAP as exam season is well and truly here so I'll only be about to update meet topics, but I'll try my best! The Towers meet is always a good one, and this will be no different who's coming?? Doc J.S217 (maybe) Marc Martin.C Martin Doyle Mitchada04 Mer (maybe) paige Ryan he who shall not be named Stuntman707 (maybe) StevenVig (maybe) TallGuyDom terrortomb (maybe) Timber Creek (maybe)
  4. still not over the fact that alex thought he'd be clever and eat with his spoon before just losing it
  5. X

    Currently queuing for X, I feel like I'm back in one of my primary school's discos omg tracks plate have included and aren't limited to: -toxic -a fight for this love remix -disco (dizzee rascal did this one) I'm not mad, just confused
  6. If you intend on coming to the meet AND would like to have some pizza, please drop either myself or @Ryan a message by 21:00 on this Saturday, 4th March so that we may get the table all booked nice and early on Sunday. If you don't let us know you're coming by then we will assume you don't wish to eat with us so you won't be accounted for when we do the booking, so please make sure you do! Thanks
  7. They stopped the Waltzers for Dean, but I was the one who was a collapsing mess afterwards hahahaha!!
  8. The votes have indeed closed. I did literally close them at 9pm last night, however I haven't had the opportunity to make any sort of post confirming everything as I've been running around trying to organise the final details for the Adventure Island meet next week (plug) as well as honouring other commitments I have and trying to revise for the unholy number of exams that've started today for me, so apologies! So I can confirm that the meet will be taking place on Saturday, 25th March 2017, and for those who will be after a bite to eat and a chat afterwards, we shall be heading to Pizza Hut, which I believe is in Staines centre. and of course, Ryan and I aren't ones to be wanting to break any tradition, so there will be some spooning (minimal violence this year though pls) If you can definitely attend this meet, and would like to hang about for the meal (and creams!), please do let myself or Ryan know SEE YOU IN MARCH XOXO
  9. With regards to the meal, I have decided to take us all to Pizza Express instead. This is because this was the second most popular vote, and a number of people mentioned not wanting to visit the original winner, so I shall be booking us a table this weekend. I am assuming that everyone who is attending the meet WILL be attending the meal, so if you have no intentions on going to the meal, please let me know by Saturday! Thanks
  10. Don't book anything yourself just yet, I am trying to sort something out for everyone, you will all know by Wednesday evening what the situation is, but you will not be paying the full price either way with any luck, but there is no kind of set time limit on when you will and won't get the online price incase all else fails! I'll drop you a pm as soon as I know what's happening wristband wise, which will be some time after 6pm Wednesday), that goes for everyone else who doesn't have facebook but is going to or shown an interest in the meet
  11. There's only two weeks until this meet!! If you aren't coming and spontaneously decide that you're totally up for this, you're more than welcome just get in touch with me so I can know you'll be popping along
  12. I do plan on looking into/sorting that closer to the time when I set up a group chat, just so everyone will know what's happening at once!
  13. I'm glad you can both make it after our chat the other day! See you on Time Machine Han
  14. Sorry if the restaurant choices aren't up to everyone's liking- as you all know I do not live local to the park at all so I used the internet/what other people suggested. I am sure it'll be lovely either way!
