Posted by denzle (Denzle), 2 February 2004I haven't booked for the weekend, but i'll be there on the Saturday. We should arrange a meet and a pint.
It would be nice to put faces to names.
Posted by fez (fez), 2 February 2004Have you gone for the Fed recommended accomodation?
Or have you booked in elsewhere?
It just looks to be quite an expensive weekend (when you take into account the beer and food).

Do you think he will accept
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 4 February 2004 normally this type of fing happens when you have had a drink and if you come to the show
you may well see some funny fings I am only speaking
from my past shows cant say no more than that,
but I know you would have a good time if you come so dont miss out!
Posted by paul (paul), 4 February 2004i had a cracking time at blackpool last year even though i dident get to bed till five the next morning
Posted by Silly_Philly (Silly Philly), 4 February 2004Does anyone have an itinery for the show? Are there seminars, etc? What time and on what days do the events happen?
Posted by paul (paul), 4 February 2004check out www.nfmwgc.com all the info you need on the fed web site
Posted by Silly_Philly (Silly Philly), 4 February 2004Oh yes.
Aww, I was hoping they would put Brodex Opposite to Ionic.
How about a charity boxing match instead then.
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 4 February 2004 er silly dont laugh they are very very close ??
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 11 February 2004 Dont forget the fed weekend its a great chance to
see equipment and get it there you get stuff at the show where your normal supplier does not have it!
and you get to see new stuff
Posted by Silly_Philly (Silly Philly), 11 February 2004I notice there is a distinct lack of WOMEN in those photos of last year's show.
Is this a bloke weekend?
Can some of you bring your womenfolk this year so that Mrs Silly doesn't feel out of place?
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 11 February 2004 women are welcome and familys to its familys that come for the weekend every body is welcome
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 11 February 2004Last time I was there - Scarborough, ages ago - they had ladies entered for the competition. One did a perfect job, no streaks, no runs, but a slower time than the blokes who battered through and were willing to drop the penalty points.
She still got the biggest cheer for the first perfect run of the day though!
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 11 February 2004 wavey are you coming to fed show in april
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 11 February 2004I don't know yet, I'll certainly try - but my passport lapsed and I'll have to get it renewed.
Are you guys on €uros yet, what's the exchange rate like?
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 11 February 2004 about time you got your butts down there
we went to edinburgh 4years ago we took a blinking
plane make the effort,you know it makes sence
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 11 February 2004Does anyone have rough times for Friday AGM, and the two seminars and competition on Saturday, from previous years?
Times aren't available until sometime in April on the Fed site, and if I can get a budget flight down to Birmingham I'd need to know these times, but waiting on the site means I'd probably miss booking the flight as it would be full by then.
I've emailed the Fed, but don't hold out too much hope going by what they've already said.
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 12 February 2004 I think the time is 6 friday night quite sure
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 12 February 2004I've emailed the Fed, but don't hold out too much hope going by what they've already said.
Scrub that! This is from Beryl's email reply . . .
Willis Limited - Insurance Broker - Sub contractors -10.30 -11.15a.m. Topic to be confirmed.
Tax Watchdog - Accountancy Tax & Accountancy -Topic to be confirmed 11.30 -12.15p.m
Window Cleaning Competition commences at approximately 1.00p.m. with the Children's event and usually runs through all events by around 3.00p.m. I hope this helps
Is the Friday night AGM worth going to? I ask, because given a choice of nights, I'd rather stay over on the Friday and have a quiet drink (to start with, by the sounds of you lot!) as opposed to a dinner dance where you can hardly hear what the person across the table is saying to you.
If anyone from Central/East Scotland is going, please let me know as I've found some excellently priced flights from Edinburgh to Birmingham - and back too, you'll be glad to know. The hotel reckons they're only 20 minutes from the airport, which doesn't sound too bad.
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 12 February 2004about time you got your butts down there
we went to edinburgh 4years ago
Terry, where exactly did your butts end up? I did a bit of digging through my old Fed mags and the only time the show has been up here in Scotland was Glasgow in '98.
You didn't come to Edinburgh four years ago on a stag night and end up in Glasgow - 50 miles away - did you?
Posted by WavieDavie (WavieDavie), 16 February 2004If you're thinking of going to the Fed Weekend, and don't want to get ripped off on prices, get yourself off to www.superbreak.com and key in hotel code 4603 for £32 per person for B+B per night.
£70 for B+B plus dinner dance is maybe OK when the Fed is charging £27 for the dinner dance, but £70 for B+B on the Friday night is a bit steep!
