A Very Happy TPM Xmas - Saturday 20th December 2014

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all of you wonderful people! It's got to that time of year again and I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our traditional end of year meet in LONDON! The event will be held on Saturday 20th December :P

The Outline of the day will be as follows:

Meet under the Waterloo Clock between 09:30 and 10:00 am. 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 meet up at the second meeting point later in the day. This first part of the day we will make the most of all the Merlin attractions based in the area by going to London Dungeons, Sealife and the London Eye. Please bear in mind we will leave without you if you are late as it’s not fair on time keepers! A couple of members have found out this on previous meets. We will stop for a bite to eat around Lunch, which could be Nando's but we will see what people think nearer the time. At lunch we will once again partake in Secret Santa as it was highly popular last year and caused much amusement. After the Waterloo attractions we will head off to Baker Street to see the wonderful Madame Tussauds before heading back to Hyde Park at the end of the day to go Winter Wonderland. (The dates available to vote for is so we can get actual christmas music ;) ). I'd imagine we will have another eaten snack in the day and will be finishing it off with some drinks down the pub and/ or possibly a curry! :drinks:

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 I’m sure 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’ve 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. Look at previous trip reports (of last year - I am seriously behind) to give yourself a taster - Once there you'll be part of the group in no time!

Once again, everyone will have my phone number so please use it on the day 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 otherwise they will be known as ‘Thing 1/ 2 etc.’ The events with TPM have been fantastic this year, so that's finish this amazing year of events with a bang. Names will be added to the list once the date for the trip has been confirmed.

Can actually make any of the dates :o Unless a surprise unannounced trip to Florida arises... :P but have put the two Saturdays because the 6th is too early for Christmas music (yes it is) and Sunday trains are horrid.

I should be able to do any of these as my grounding stops on December first. Not like it's serious anyway though.

 

Put me down as a yes (but might wimp out of the dungeons if others too don't want to)

Now I've moved departments in work I may be lucky enough to have like a weekend off a month, so will have to see closer to the time once the date has been chosen! :)

EDIT: definitely cannot do Sunday 14th

I am tempted by this meet, But wouldnt be able to make the 13th. But I have a quandrie.

 

If I were to attend I would have to drive to somewhere, where I could leave my car cheeply, to then get the tube/train to meet everyone. last train back to stoke leaves london at 18:45 so is, I  think, a bit early to join in winter wonderland.

 

So any ideas people?

I might actually make this one... huh XD That feels weird to say :P Only if it's not the 6th though! Hope to see some people I've been chatting to there :) I would have no idea what to get for Secret Santa........ what was given last year?

 

Also Toofpikk the dungeons are hilarious not scary trust me I was exactly the same as you this year and I've been twice since and loved it :D Especially when you're doing it with a group like this one! :P

I did the one in Blackpool with these guys but still found a couple of the scenes get to me. Aaaand by the sounds of things the london's version of them is a lot scarier.

You have no choce in the matter toofpikk - I assure you, you will be dragged in :P

Edit:

Just thought I'd mention, if you have not been to a meet before - please do not panic that this will happen to you. I will welcome you with open arms and will not drag you. ;) this rule only applies to Toofpikk :D

I can do every-day listed apart from the 14th December as I'll be attending a Christmas Meal! I'll love for it to be on a Saturday (20th - 21st would be preferred as I can get in some last minute Christmas shopping done in London! :P) so I can make a weekend out of it with you lovely people! As I've not attended barely ANY meets this year, I will love to spend as much time as possible with you lovely folks!  :D

Already have something planned for the 6th (as does Ian) so unavailable for that date (although will be at Winter Wonderland so if it ends up that date maybe see you there!).

 

As for the others I'm a total maybe. Work gets insanely busy around Christmas and I'm more than likely going to be working. I would ask for one of the weekends off but as I'm already asking for the 6th/7th off I doubt I'll get it.

 

So I'm just going to leave it and hope I get whichever weekend it ends up being off. Although I would rather it be Saturday 13th December, as that's going to be quieter at work than the weekend after!

Last train back to stoke (virgin) is 10.40 or something on a weekday. Just after 9pm on a Sat/Sun. Plus advance fares are really good for late night trains!

I'm blessed with an internal Uni exam on either Monday 15th or Friday 19th December. I will be there regardless of the date but Saturday 20th would be best!

I shall be there regardless of date. However only for the WinterWonderland segment of the day as I don't have enough money to do all four Merlin attractions and Winter Wonderland. Plus I've never been to experience Winter Wonderland properly before :o
