Tee shirt and jacket as it is going to be a warm day. I'm wearing a light coat and Steve is wearing a leotard

Now the numbers may be increasing if Steve is dressing up for the occasion.

Is anyone dressing up, re 1 and 2 below? I just intend to dress for comfort with all the rushing around we will be doing with the sightseeing.

Also I have noticed a few people talking of bringing books are these to swap or for the lucky dip or either as some of the books sound good. I intend to bring something for the lucky dip/swap, but dont really know how this works as never done this sort of thing before.

1 Hat Comp
2 Fancy Dress Comp
3 Swap shop (bring along anything you want to swap, i.e. cinema vouchers)
4 Lucky dip (bring along anything you got for free and do not want)

Weather not brilliant in Manchester this afternoon, hoping the forecast stays good for Saturday :cross:

Too bad am going to miss all of you on Saturday, but I have a good reason - am flying home to see my family and friends, so I guess ... next time! Have fun so that you want a next time :)

Have been quite quiet on this thread as was unsure if I (plus bub) could make it. Sadly, we can't :( though I thought I'd finally get to meet so many of you!

Saturday forecast looks good so far, though will no doubt be even better with the fun and games (and sightseeing - I'm exhausted just reading about it) planned.

Have an excellent day and I hope to be at the next one.

Ps great work PXC for organising!

I had a few drinks after work tonight and it was definitely jacket weather. It was warm this morning so my Argo look was spot on 8-) . Come evening I definitely felt cold.

@akh43 - please dress however you want, the fancy dress is optional, and if anyone does not want to walk around in fancy dress, you can just change in the toilets. ;)

I will be bringing things for the lucky dip, I do not have anything to swap.

The weather looks good on Saturday, yippee! :T

@ClareBarr, I am ordering you to rest up so you can make it on Saturday! ;)
@RickyRaj, loved to see your Argo look
@anakin - thanks, hope you can make the next one!
@biggins - thanks, will certainly try and get a few photos. :P

And I can't wait to see Steve in a leotard. o/

Oh I'm soo sorry to disappoint all you ladies. I tried on the leotard last night ( it's been a while since I last wore it) and the crotch split. I'm afraid my sewing skills aren't up to the job of repair so it'll just be jeans and a shirt.
I will be bringing something for the lucky dip.
