    I'm sure some of us UK members have been feeling a little left out with all the meets that happen in the USA. Yes there is the national meet in California but at a reasonable cost as far as travelling is concerned. I know the London members often have meets at film showings. A recent 2001 showing was one I think?
    The UK is tiny if you compare it to other countries, so the traveling would take 1 day max to get anywhere
    I'm sure some of the UK members would like to try and get something organised. But what to do? That is the question.
    When? Where?
    Ideas?
    Lets make it happen!

    Well, I wouldn't call it often, and to some extent it consists of a few people that know each other on the board getting together, but I'm up for a meet if its something I can get to. Any ideas anyone? I'd mention London again, as I see that there is a Studio Ghibli retrospective lined up to start any day now, but I'm really busy the next few weeks.

    I would definitely be up for the Fellowship thing. I had planned on taking that day off work anyway. Make it the best theatre you can find though, cost be damned.
    However the thought of driving into London is not one I like. Dan - you're only a train journey away from - correct? I could drive down to you and leave the car there.

    Would I be welcome to come along too if I could arange transport?
    Aren't you in Birmingham Rob? I'm only a 1 1/2 hour train journey from there, so maybe a carpool?
    I may have to work though, so it can't be for certain. I'll have to get back to you on this.

    Yeah I'll pick anyone up along the way as long as we can all fit in my little 206.
    We'll need to pre-book the tickets though, I would have thought.

    Ok chaps, just rang through to secure me some tickets for a nov 10th Harry Potter preview at the big Odeon, and they confirmed to me that Harry will move out a few weeks later and Fellowship will move in upon its release date.
    I'll get tickets when they become available (sometime next month I'd guess). Hopefully we can get a few more names together and we can all arrange a time of day we'd like to see it.

    I don't think I can make the meet for LOTR on December 19th due to work commitments over christmas.
    I work in the retail sector so it is the busiest time of the year for me to work!
    But I would be up for a Episode II meet next year maybe?
    I could probably do a more local, midlands meet at some point maybe?

    I'd like to do that, but it's my friend's 24th (mine was yesterday [​IMG]) so unfortunately probably a no-no [​IMG] I know I'm not going to be at work that day no matter what, just probably going to be otherwise engaged.
