Ahhh, but if you pull out to turn and they are behind you going faster than usual and not expecting you to pull out, well then you're knackered really, but I see where you're coming from, so I guess it's just the people below we need to not crash into!

Well as long as you take pictures of the before and after stages, that's fine by me! Haha. However I always think the view is better when you're actually in it. It feels more real that way! ;)

Hmm... this is sounding more exciting to me the more I read the peeps about skiing. I have never done it before, but I could always try it out. Just to be clear, is this part of the main meet?

I can confirm that Chazzgoth will be attending along with me, funkycaveman. I think we can attend both the friday and Saturday but need somewhere to stay. Some information about where we will be based in Manchester would be useful so we can plan ahead, thanks.

Chaz's pc is out of order so I have been relaying messages.

I have never ski'd before, If against all other times failure follows plans to to do something with everyone paying at every other meets, I will see you all on the kiddy slopes whilst my swiss coach teachers me how to stand up on skis.

Or I'll just ride the ski lift.

I've had a couple of snowboarding lessons before, which I mainly took cos it looked cooler than skiing. I assume skiing is a fair bit easier than snowboarding?

Chill Factor.e. It's a big-ass slope that you can ski down near the Trafford Centre. Talking of skiing, I'm going in the weekend, get reacquainted with the skis. Should be fun.

Anyone else need a place to stay?

I'd take you up on that offer, if you'd be comfortable with some 22 year old Scottish guy being there that is.

If not, no worries.

Hey guys, pc's been a bust but I'll be attending with funky cave man. Also Luis was kind enough to change my name from chazzgoth to chazz. Happy times. Hoping I'll be able to get the Friday off, what with commitments, but I should be able to take a weekend out. Is there official ng accomodation this time around or is this a fend for yourself meet?

Every man/woman for themselves. It was just an exception this past summer.

Oh fuck. Although I think I recall you mentioning this a little.

I think it might be an idea to work out who wants to go and see if we can book rooms in the same hotel in the same floor with the rooms as close to each other as possible. Simplifies things without Luis having to fork cash out. Although this depends heavily on if people will be willing to pay for their place and who would have responsibility for each room.


This too will pass.

Two things:

1. I love the idea of going to the Chill Factore and I'm for it.
2. I know I live only an hour away from Manchester but if anyone plans to rest at a Travelodge or a Premier Inn, please let me know. For the sake of convenience, it would be good if I was staying at the same place (not room, lol) as a few of you. It would help if I had a room at one of these places for a few nights rather than going back home and fourth.

must remember to book a holiday from work on 14-15th also

I'll actually be working on the 14th but I'm sure nothing will be happening until the evening anyway so I shouldn't be missing out on a lot. I just need to work out when I can get there but I may not arrive until 8PM. It just depends on my work hours which I'll find out tomorrow.

I'll also be looking for a room at a premier inn type place, it'd be cheaper for me to just go home in the evening (only an hour away) but fuck it, that's not the full experience. It's not a Newgrounds meet without sharing a room with a bunch of nerds and being in close proximity to their dongs, no homo.

So if anyone needs someone to share a room with, I'm cool with paying half of whatever it costs. As long as I have somewhere to sleep (bed or floor) I don't care.

I'm definitly going to come if I dont go back to uni the weekend before. I'm also trying my hardest to get Williwowza to come, he loves me after our own meet-up yesterday so I think it shouldnt be too hard getting him to come.

Let me rephrase, I'm already here. But I will continue to be here for the meet, but I dont think I'll do the chill factor because it's abit far out for me and it's not that amazing :P

If you guys need ideas for something to do in town in the evening let me know!! This is my city and there's always clubs and bars with something going on every night for those of you who are over 18

Sounds Like a plan, will do the same closer to the date, shouldn't be too booked up at the weekend. I will probs share a room with Chazz but not sure if we can book a twin room and have a third person camp like before? Will make things more affordable.
Doing the snow thing looks like a good idea.

Probably not going to show up for this.
I might show up, I might not. Don't go holding it against me, I'll make a more concrete decision closer to the date.

lol I live in Manchester but how embarrassing if I showed up

I might have things to do

maybe if you're having a pint in a city centre pub I would show my face but I certainly wouldn't go dry slope skiing in Trafford
