Ministry Of Sound @ Thorpe Park Meet

Recommended Posts

Good evening all of you wonderful people! ;) I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Ministry Of Sound Meet at Thorpe Park! :D The date of the event is Saturday 13th July 2013 90's Anthems. There will be 4 parts to this meet - Thorpe Park during the day and a meal afterwards that can be enjoyed by everyone and the clubbing event & Overnight stay to try out the Crash Pad in the evening which is unfortunately over 18's only! We also in a joint meet with Towers Nerds who will be coming down south to join us for the event. This is a fantastic opportunity to socialise with our northern counterparts and to show that the enthusiast community spreads further than one forum.

The Outline of the day will be as follows:

Meet by the annual pass entrance at 09:30 am by the cash machine just on the off chance the gates could possibly open earlier than advertised such as last year. As soon as the gates open we will go into the park, if by any chance you happen to miss this meet point due to travel arrangements or just plain lateness you can either a) phone or text so we can arrange to meet you or B) meet up at the second meeting point later in the day. This first part of the morning we will make the most of the quiet park and churn out those rides. Once the park starts to fill up a little we will get to the Stealth rocks so if for whatever reason you could not get there for opening you can meet us at 11:30 am if you had not arranged to meet beforehand via phone. Please bear in mind we will leave without you if you are late as it’s not fair on time keepers! As members have found out! We will then continue visiting the attractions and it will be arranged beforehand that we will try our best to get on all the attractions.. I know not everyone will want to do some of the rides at THORPE PARK. If you decide to not come on please be polite and wait for everyone to come off and chat to other members whilst you are waiting. Or go off and do another attraction as long as you’ll be back after the group has finished riding the attraction. Please respect other people’s wishes who wish to ride certain things that you yourself may not be too keen with. During the day, around half 1, we will stop for a bite to eat where you can go and eat where you like and we will arrange where to meet after everyone has finished eating. (Who knows we might all want to eat the same thing anyway :P ) After lunch we will group together for the Official Group Photo for the meet and continue going round the park and riding the attractions people want to do until the park closes. ^_^ There will be another meeting point at 8 pm on the bridge for those coming to the Ministry of Sound If you can't handle the park during the day :o

I will be handing out my phone number for everyone who is attending the meet that day, should there be any problems. We aim to stay together as a group for the day, going from one activity to the next, enjoying getting to know people you share very similar interests with, the idea is to just go with the flow and enjoy the day with some awesome people. There will be many photo’s in the day being taken and the possibility of a few video clips. Whilst we cannot force you to stay with the group, it is the general purpose of these meets! You will have my number (and some of the senior teams) if you become split so by all means use it. The meets are a fantastic laugh and everyone is invited, even if you have never posted before or been to any kind of meet at all. If it's your first meet, I understand it can be nerve breaking - but we were all there at one point so know how it feels, please don't let this stop you from attending - Once there you'll be part of the group in no time! Just look at the past trips this year!

Once again, everyone will have my phone number so please use it on the day :D If anyone has any issues or concerns or even nervous about coming, feel free to post here, or PM myself and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you feel like my response is taking too long another member of the team will be more than happy to help. We will all try and help you out as much as we can.

Please PM me or post here to say if you’re attending. If you are bringing a mate along with you, please also include who they are so they are not known as ‘Plus 1.’ The events with TPM have been fantastic this year and this one will be no different!

Hey guys Full stretchy trip report to come, in the mean time here's a group photo and a link to the other picks I took (even though I didn't take many) https://plus.google.com/photos/10641830

Jolly Ho - You've arrived back here for Part 4 of 5 of the official Ministry of Sound at Thorpe Park Trip Report. So yes this part became rather delayed by a weekend whilst I braved the medieval world

I'm a maybe for the day I'm free from 15th of june so anytime after that is fine for me, I might be a plus 2 as well with my cousins being interested in going and trying out the new X and The Swarm backwards, so ye I'm a maybe for the day.

July and August I can do - so if it ends up being one of those dates, put me down as a Yes for the Meet and a Maybe for everything else (so likely this will be my first meet of the year!). Whether I go to the meal depends on finances and stuff. Clubbing really isn't my thing, so I'd have to see how I feel closer to the time whether I'd be up for it.

It will obviously be a no for me attending the Club night part :P But the meet during the day I should be fine from 15th of June up until September, so I have voted June and July as they would probably be the easiest for me to attend, plus the June one is the day after exams so that would be a good release from exams.

There will be another meeting point at 8 pm on the bridge for those coming to the Ministry of Sound If you can't handle the park during the day :o

This is something I am interested in attending, however if I do come I will only attend the evening part from 8pm. I can handle a full day but I'd rather do just the evening.

The poll is closed and the date confirmed is the 90's Anthems Night on Saturday 13th July which won with 19 votes! This is going to be an extremely good day.

On top of this not only are we going to have a fantastic day but we are pleased to announce that we will be combining our meet with the community at Towers Nerd. After many background plans with their meet organiser Stretchy, this is going to be a fantastic opportunity to socialise with our Northern counterparts and to show that the enthusiast community stretches beyond the one forum. TPM and TN are very friendly communities especially on meets so this is going to work fantastically well

Edit: It Appears Ethan, you were just that little bit impatient whilst I was writing this out :P
