YES! it the moment you have all been waiting for!
Yvonne and I have been flogging away, behind the scenes,
and its finally here!
So boys and girls, (and those that aren't too sure) without further ado,
yes, its better than Christmas and even your favourite new year celebrations,

We present to you, in all its glory the TP Bi-Annual Extravaganza!

Place are limited so don't be backwards in coming forwards,
start thinking about booking your place for the event of the year.

The location is Whipsnade Village Hall.
Easy access from M1, J9 and on the same road as the world renowned Whipsnade Zoo,
in fact its so close you can walk to the zoo gates.
According to Google the post code is
LU6 2LG ‎


Other Local attractions include a Tree Cathedral, 100yrds from the hall,
an open working farm a few miles North, up the A5, for those with children,
(Should you decide to sell them in to slavery),
a very pretty village church 200yrs away and the fabulous Dunstable Downs are a short drive away.
The hall itself is set within a copse of trees in open countryside
with only a few village houses in the immediate vicinity,
quiet and photogenic.

Prices will be £10 per ticket, pre booked or £12 on the door,
This gives you access to both days.

**Ticket sales information will be released as soon as we have that side of things set up**.

This time we are keeping it pretty much in house.
There are some wonderfully talented people right here on the forum who we will be approaching,
(some we already have) to ask if they would like to do a workshop or lecture
(or both if they are really feeling masochistic)
covering a wide range of subjects.

If you think you can offer something, please do drop Cobra (Chris) or Yv (Yvonne) a pm with details.

Remember, this is your week-end, so
any suggestions of things that you would like to see and do, will be most welcome.
Our aim is to provide as much opportunity as possible for you to actually come away with photographs.

There will be models to photograph, both human and not so human
So, don't forget to bring your camera, flash and a lens or two may not go amiss either.

TP branded clothing samples will be available to view and place orders on the day.

Soft drinks, tea coffee, and light snacks will be available on the day.
The Huntsman's Rest, pub and restaurant is walking distance away and can seat up to 60, in the restaurant,
for those that want a meal, and or a drink, to chill out after the days activities.

There are a few local B&B places, for those that are travelling, as well as a Holiday Inn on the A5.
The next village along also has a pub and a couple of mini market style shops for last minute essentials.


**Up Date**

Unfortunately due to personal circumstances beyond his control
Matt (@MWHCVT ) aka the Night school,
is unable to attend.

He is obviously very upset to to think that he has let everyone down, and to miss the event of the year.
As some recompense has very kindly offered to sponsor a competition after the meet.

This will involve you all posting your best shots from the Mega meet, (of anything at all)
and will be in the form of a members poll, the winners will be decided to 3 places.

The prizes are well worth having, so again don't forget to bring your camera's folks.

And thank you Matthew for your very kind gesture.

Another apology, just in.
Unfortunately, due to a last minute "personal crisis" the
company supplying branded goods will not be able to attend either.
Sorry folks.

Weren't you banned, from further attendance, after "that" incident in 2012?

:p
I explained to marcel that I really didn't realise that streaking though the restaurant was inappropriate, I just though it was that kind of gig :)

He said I could come as long as there was no repeat ;)

I'm in! Let me know when to pay and a cheque will be in the post. Even the DVLA should have sorted themselves out by then - if not, I'll take the train. Or blag a lift with Pete!

Just for info, I'm not a Norfolk local.....I moved down here purely to help dilute the gene pool.

I'm sure DK will be in attendance.....I'll nag the rest of them to see if we can get a at least a car full!! ;)
