    Okay the other thread has turned more into a chinwag, so I'm going to use this as an official roll-call for the Birmingham meet-up in October.

    So cast in 'aye' and I'll put your name up here.

    IBIS Hotel (£65)

    Travelodge (£66 - but it's a really scabby hotel)

    Google Hotels

    Book your train

    Meeting first at the Newt and Cucumber by New Street Station.

    From the other thread, the northerners are going to be camping in there from around 8am, or whenever they decide to arrive! I will probably get into town around 1pm.

    Thanks for more linkies Wizard :thumbleft

    I don't know which directions you'll all be coming from (and therefore which train station you'll come in at) but the Thistle Hotel mentioned is right by Snow Hill station.

    Dont give too drunk kid, just incase you come back and find no bed, and then give your air bed the wrong type of "pumping"

    I heard you can now get a type of credit card that's a mastercard, similiar to a credit card except you buy them from the CO-OP and you can put as much money on it as you want (similiar to a phone card) and you can only spend what's on the card.

    My mate who was blacklisted (I know that's only a term) got one last week. :hhhmmm I see if I can find the link to their website! Might be an alternative Wizard if your worried about hotels not taking your card?8)

    Looks interesting I did get a visa topup card from paypal but that was no good.

    The mastercard one does look interesting though.

    I know this one quite well. Many years ago when I was contracted to a big Brum electrical company I always stayed there. So when the first CF meet happened in Brum I booked there.

    Rooms are comfortable and the place otherwise is 'standard corporate'. It's main problem is that I've *never* been there when it wasn't in the middle of a major set of reconstruction/road works.

    It is about 10 mins walk from New Street station.

    Harry.

    Supposedly, there's gonna be something missing in the hotels I'll be staying in soon... they've only got "squatters".

    I'll let you envision that on your own. :unsure

    No - live close enough not to bother. But I wish some of you would hurry up and say whether you're going to consider booking or not. Geez. lol.
