Good evening all of you wonderful people!  ;) After a very close call in the poll Thorpe Park eventually came out top at 14 to Paultonn's 13 and Oakwoods 12. Sorry if your favourite did not win but we will make sure these trips are incorporated in the future as I know there is demand for is there. I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Thorpe Park Summer Nights Meet!  :D The date of the event is Saturday 2nd August 2014. There will be 2 parts to this meet - Thorpe Park during the day and trying out the summer activities and summer nights event itself!

 

The Outline of the day will be as follows: 

 

Meet by the annual pass entrance at 09:00 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 phone or text so we can arrange to meet you or    B). This first part of the morning we will make the most of the quiet park and churn out those rides. 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 7 pm on the bridge for those coming to Summer Nights 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!.

I voted Paulton's and Thorpe. Oakwood is going to be too much of a stretch this year really. For the record, I can only do mid-to-late August though. :P

Paulton's Park was originally planned for May but with the John Wardley Event coming up this has been moved to August if chosen if not then next year. Also with Paulton's Park there could be the possibility of something else being arranged for the trip...

Is there another John Wardley event?! :o

Nope, just changed the top - thanks for the spot.

I'm curious as to what could be popping up over the next few months though...

Nothing at all...The Word 'IF' was used :P

Thorpe would be the only one that, realistically, I'd be able to make, so I voted that. Although, if this meet is going to take place between the 5th and 12th of August, then I wouldn't be able to make it anyway.

Tbh I would prefer it at either Oakwood or Paultons park, as they are places We haven't collectively been to as a forum and there might be extra things arranged for us which would be great in my opinion, as it could put us on good terms with either park for the future :)

I'd love to go to Oakwood at some point- but given the fact I'm only 15 and it is literally on the other side of the country I just can't (it seems like a few others are in the same situation as me regarding that), and Paultons doesn't seem like something I can afford to spend money on. PLUS the thorpe meet could correspond with a summer nights day, woo!

Basically, I really want to go to Thorpe.

Yeah Thorpe is the only realistic option for me too. However, this is getting me excited as this could potentially be the first meet I can attend! :D

I was thinking by the way, if we did a Thorpe meet in August we could do a day trip but then also do Summer Nights afterwards since they'll still be going on in August, thoughts?

I chose Paultons because I've not been to that park yet, plus there's Cobra and many other exciting additions there.

That being said, I don't mind where we go and would be happy for a meet to any of these.

It would be nice to go back to Oakwood again as it's such a great park and their after dark events are brilliant (transport could be a problem though) p,us Thorpe is easy to get to for me plus there will also be summers nights running = more rides on Inferno etc.

Owing to the closeness of the votes, just as an idea, why can't there be two meets? One to Paulton's / Oakwood and a smaller one to Thorpe, say.

I assume Thorpe would be easier and more popular for younger members (due to closeness, etc.) and Paulton's / Oakwood would likely be a larger meet and have more interest with older members (especially Oakwood, due to the fact people would stay a night presumably?).

I know Peaj is a busy man, so even if one of the Team is in charge of one of the meets, then it could work. That way, more trips and more happy peoples.

I would strongly be in favour of a two meet thing, mainly for reason mentioned above but on the aspect I would love to see another moderate-long distance meet (wish I voted Oakwood as well) as it's great to visit parks I rarely get to visit (hoping I can go), whilst its always good to get visits to Thorpe especially with these fantastic summer night events too.

I would be happy with an Oakwood and Thorpe meet, we have had 2 meets in a month beforehand, it is possible to do that again. Oakwood and Thorpe are neck and neck so I think even If Peaj can't do a thorpe meet maybe one of the other mods or Admins can take charge for those who may be younger and can't get to Oakwood or Paultons.

EDIT: not that it matters to me personally, it seems like I can only vote once whereas I have seen people who have been able to vote twice and if I can only vote once that might seem a little unfair.

Man these votes are close :S I hope it's Thorpe that comes out on top at the end! :P When will the voting close anyway?

Voting will stay open until it's confirmed a meet will take place that month. In the mean time it just means people can amend their votes if they wish/ and/ or change their mind. At the moment it is merely to track what the feeling is on the boards of where people really want to go.

Yes 2 meets could happen, but if it did, it would also mean I would just take out another meet elsewhere - reason being is that If too many official ones happened in the year, the novelty of them would wear off and wouldn't be sustainable in the long run (In my opinion/ You can have too much of a good thing) But that does not mean to say no unofficial meets can take place!
