Sci-Fi Scarborough 2015

Sci-Fi Scarborough 2015 Sci-fi10

Right folks, the count down has begun for the 2nd Sci-Fi Scarborough event! I thought I would post a thread up on here and keep it up dated with all the new information and updates of the guests who will be announced over the next couple of months.
The main reason why I am posting this here is becasue I would really love for some of my TIG friends to make the journey and have a big meet up Smile
So far the guest list includes the guy who plays Greedo, Femi Taylor (oola) and dark lord himself Dave Prowse. There are loads of others as well and there is going to be a room filled with probably the biggest collection of Jerry Anderson props ever put into one place from a whole collective of Jerry Anderson Collectors!
There will be traders and all sorts! So calling all U.K. Tiggers! put March the 14th & 15th in your diary and lets all meet up and get drunk and beat up a couple of nerds or something :cool laugh:
I may be able to put a few people up as long as you don't mind crashing on my sofa/floor, I've got airbeds and shit and I'm not sure yet but I may even be able to rent out the flat above me for literally peanuts, but that will be something nearer the date.
I will keep this post updated with new info and for anyone on Facebook, here is the page:
Sci-Fi Scarborough 2015
This offer of a meet up is of course extended to all TIG members far and wide if you want to make the trip, I can show you all just how shit England is :cool laugh:

Well anyone who crashes at mine will have to deal with several issues concerning me:

I regulary walk around naked, I shoot guns, and I need some 'alone' time with my computor at least once a day... the time depends on when Laura is out :cool laugh:

But don't let this put you off, I'm a really nice guy What a Face

If enough people from similar areas want to make the trip, could always do a car share.

This sounds like it could be a good laugh, and a great opportunity to meet up with some fellow TIGers Cool

probably around a seven hour drive for me though Crying or Very sad  I might look into perhaps flying to Manchester, then getting the train the rest of the way thinking

It would save me around 3hrs travelling time, for only slightly more cost. I could fly up on the Friday night and fly back on the Sunday, but it would mean crashing on your couch for two nights Alex, if that's ok with you?

Sounds like big fun. Very Happy

I would need to fly from Amsterdam to Durham Tees Valley first, I think.

How to get to  Scarborough from there on, by train, landspeeder or bus?

This goes for anyone interested, if we can establish a group of people genuinely interested then we can try and work out the cheapest possible way to cover travel, a lot of folk are from down south, I know not living next door to each other, but surely car share & pick ups is a potential option?

I'd like to say, don't look at this as a long way to travel for a shit town Sci-Fi convention, look at this as a holiday and a grand TIG meet up Very Happy

I'd probably drive so anyone en-route from the midlands is welcome to join me, failing that I have 2 train stations local to me stoke and macclesfield

Smile

As much fun as this sounds, I won't be able to make it. No Too much going on between XMas, a friend's wedding, brother's wedding and Celebration Anaheim and more within the next few months.

I do hope a bunch of you do get together. I am sure it will be a blast!

cheers!
Very Happy

No promises at this stage, but circumstances permitting, I would love to attend.
If I can make it, I will have my wife and daughter with me (I think my daughter would like to see where CBBC's 'All At Sea' is filmed, plus she wants to meet Alex 'the hairy man who makes funny videos'  Evil or Very Mad  :cool laugh:  ).

Right chaps, this event is edging nearer and we need to finalize who's coming so we can sort out transport, potential car sharing etc.
Accommodation is also going to be an issue, but I can put up a good few people, if you don't mind sofa crashing air beds and sleeping bags then you are more than welcome to crash at mine for the week end, this would definately be the cheapest option.
And there would only be a slight risk that I may drug you and creep in during the night and violate you all :cool laugh:

So fella's get in touch with me and each other and lets see what we can sort out, I'm gonna need to know how much Rohypnol I'm gonna need Razz

As you know Alex, I would very much like to make this,
although I'm not sure the best way of getting there yet.
I would be happy to crash on your floor  or couch, hell if I've drunk enough whisky, I'll sleep anywhere ( and have) Smile

I already have taken some days off from work, and now have to book some tickets to Scarborough.
Seems I have to fly from Amsterdam to Durham first.

I guess you guys all arrive at Saturday, leave at Sunday?
Maybe I stay a day longer to prevent having to leave too early Sunday and miss all the fun...and maybe to recover from terrible things that happened the night before in Maison Kahn. Very Happy

I just sleep on my black Wampa fur.

Right, so we're moving forward then Very Happy

who lives where and what's the possibility of potentially car sharing? Chris & Stef any chance there?

Durham, I have a friend in Middleborough who will be coming, he may be able to pick you up Marco and drive you here Smile
