Good afternoon all of you wonderful people! I'm very excited to FINALLY officially announce plans for our meet at Paulton's Park! It's a busy period with holidays and stuff so I'd imagine it'll be smallish but those meets generally mean you get to spend some quality time with people & great for those who want to try their first meet and intimidated by larger numbers! There will be another optional Ice breaker game. The meet is on Saturday 13th August 2016. As usual the final confirmed date was voted by YOU   :D

 

The Outline of the day will be as follows: 
 

Meet outside the park entrance at 09:30am so we have a chance to obtain our tickets to this lovely little park. As soon as the gates for the park 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 phone or text so we can arrange to meet you or meet up later in the day. 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! A couple of members have found out this on previous meets. We will then continue visiting the attractions and we will try our best to get on all the attractions people wish to ride, which will be arranged before the meet. One thing that has been annoying in the past is the decision making on where to go next and then the group changing their minds if a queue is above a certain level. This just ends us up in the past riding less as we spend a lot of the time deciding where to go. I know not everyone will want to do some of the rides at Paulton's Park, but at the end of the day Paulton's Park is more than just the rides. 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. If you are going I will be talking to you beforehand to see what attractions you are most keen to do so I can make sure I can arrange the day so that everyone gets a chance to ride what they wish to ride. 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 ) 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.

 

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 topics 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 so they are not known as ‘Plus 1.’ The events with TPM have been fantastic the last few years and this one will be no different - Don't Miss Out. Names will be added to the list once the date for the trip has been confirmed.

If it's the 6th or 7th, Becky can't come but I can.

27th and 28th are no good for us because of Victorious Festival... so anything other than those dates really!

 

PS. If there is anyone in Portsmouth who needs a lift, I may be able to help! :)

It's August now and I have no idea what's going on with this meet and whether it's happening on the 13th or 20th.

 

I don't want to make this a ranty post, but would like to make a few suggestions in regards to meets.

 

1/ add the specific date/s of the meet into the topic name and hide the polls

 

The showing the meet dates on the calendar and Facebook chat groups to planned attendees have been very helpful lately.

Won't be attending this as I'll be at Thorpe ^_^ Plus I probably wouldn't have attended anyway due to the travel costs and park tickets - need to save for the Blackpool meet and the Stealth anniversary event :D 

 

Hope everyone has fun! It's meant to be getting hot again this weekend - Peppa Pig might turn into bacon ;)
