Depends on what time I get up. I will catch a train from Crewe so two or more each hour, so I don't need to aim for a specific one.

Last year no one spotted me ! The only consolation this time is that I now know what Steve looks like having met him at Congress !

Hopefully I will be in the UK but nothing certain yet, it depends on my Mother and her house. I will be there if the trip goes ahead........but I'm not going to jump up and down this year !!!!

I hope you are all more chatty than you are on the forum......otherwise we'll be drinking a lot of coffee !!

Lucky he wasn't hoping for a Cup match

I don't think many of the members come to the forum just to 'chat'. There are better places to do that - Facebook, Twitter etc; and many of the members who come to Stampex rarely ever contribute here, yet their enthusiasm for their collecting areas is very evident in person.  

There is usually a group of us who meet in the coffee bar during the morning and have done so now for around ten years.  

Over those years several collectors have joined our table who had not met us before - I think we are usually the more vocal of all the tables of people gathered there so should be easy enough to find.

I think fifth round weekend is the previous (i.e. Stampex) weekend. We had in fact seriously considered going that weekend, which would have been a real shame to miss the annual forum outing to Islington, but the Championship fixture is against Aston Villa, which will be a big game, being two big clubs and both relegated from the Premier League last season. Then Sky then selected it for live broadcast and moved it from Saturday afternoon to Monday evening which didn't work for us to go up to even though it is Robbie's half-term break. If we had gone for it and booked the match and rail tickets, and then Newcastle had beaten Oxford in the Cup, that would have been a total nightmare as everything would have changed again and I'd probably have had to book everything all over again including new travel arrangements. All in all, it's worked out perfectly that we chose the following weekend anyway. Now all they have to do is to beat Bristol City and Robbie will be happy.

I will be consoling myself with visits to other events as Stampex appears to have come just a bit soon for my trip. Another time I hope.

If anyone is around near the Southern England Stamp Show in Farnborough, Hampshire on March 10th-11th then do pop in. Looks to be a nice show.


Guinness World record in the making too........check it out !

Profuse apologies for not making it to Stampex today. Circumstances conspired... 
I was looking forward to meeting up with you all.... and having a look at Colin's new Valentines issue. Never mind. Unhappy

Maybe next year?  Smile
