Good Morning 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 Sunday 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, London Eye and for those that can get in the New Shrek AdventuresPlease 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 inSecret Santa as it was highly popular last year and caused much amusement. After the Waterloo attractions we will head off to Baker Street if we have time to see the wonderful Madame Tussauds or those who wish to break off for a little bit for a pint in the pub 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:. Sorry on the lack of choice this year!

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.

 

Update (Rough Plan)

We meet at 10 and will go straight to London eye

At 11 we will do shrek for those who don't want to go to sea life
At half 12 those who want a small lunch snack before nandos please go ahead and use the county halo facilities those who don't want to eat have a pint in the arcade at the basement of the building with McDonald's
At half 1 we will do the dungeons and finish off our drink at the tavern before moving onto Baker Street
Predictably I'll say tussauds will start at half 4 those who don't want to do that can go weather spoons next door
Which means nandos will be a bit later this year starting at 6
This will give us enough time to enjoy winter wonderland with predicted arrival of 8pm (possibly earlier like everything else but hey this is a rough plan for those who need slots for shrek and dungeons) and we will stay there till people filter out

Either date is fine, both are on my weekends off! :o would prefer the 5th as I'm out with work on the 19th getting very tipsy, but Peaj knows that doesn't affect me the next day :') so yeah either is good!

Can it be? Possibly at long last! XD

 

We shall see, though I don't know if I'll be attending everything now that I do not have a Merlin Pass XD

Someone will have some freebies on their Magic Passes I'm sure!

Unfortunately for those looking for free tickets most of the forum users who work in a theme park or another will have to hand their passes back way before this meet, and even if kept they go out of date on the last day of season at the park they work at! 

If you want magic passes you will have to bring it up with someone who hasn't got a seasonal job.
