Right, British UMSFers..

Roving Mars starts at the Birmingham Think Tank Imax theatre next weekend...but hold your horses
http://www.imax.ac/schedule.htm

1200, 1515 and 1830 are the showings.

Anyone fancy a get-together on April 21st? I can't make any promises, but it should be more than your usual showing - and it's on 3 times in the one day. Think Tank is about 3/4 mile from Birmingham New Street (I will travel by train from Leicester and I would aim to get there before the first of the three showings on the day - about 11ish

Once I know more details, I'll let you know smile.gif

I'm definitely interested and Angie, my wife, is also keen (possibly daughter Elanor too but she may be otherwise engaged). We would probably travel from North Wales by train, arriving in time for the second showing if not the first. Is advance booking advisable? Hope to see you there, and with luck some other members too.
regards,
Nigel.

Helen's said she wants to come as well, so there can be something of a Mars widows get together at the same time smile.gif

Hopefully within a few days I'll know a few more details - then I would say yes, booking will probably make sense. If we get enough numbers, perhaps we can do a bulk booking (minimum would probably be 10)

Actually, I don't believe Helen isn't interested in Mars!

Angie in fact had her primary school kids making 'Mars rovers' out of motorised Lego way back in Pathfinder days. Elanor attended my GCSE Astronomy class last year and achieved an A grade - so I'm pretty lucky that way all in all.

I'll watch this space - hope a good meeting materialises.

Almost 24 hours and no more responses?. I'm surprised. I think you need to move this to the front page or flag it up somewhere in the MER section. Remember how long it took some members to find the 'barbecue'?

My wife and I would be happy to join you all but after checking the train schedules there doesn't appear to be a convenient route for us right now. I was told that we really need to wait until this bridge is completed.

I missed this because I've been in Prague for the weekend walking myself into the ground. Anyway you can definitely count me in as I've just booked the flight to Birmingham on the 21st. Carpe diem and all that.

You Ryanair slut smile.gif Top stuff.

As for the Scot-ash contingent - I've ping the Lifeboat Yahoo group to see if Bob can make it.

Nico - no excuses - get your Belgian arse on the Eurostar.

Would this become available on DVD by any chance?

Supposedly it's going to be a DVD release - I've seen it listed ( as well as the soundtrack on CD ) but not yet released.

Would be an ideal candidate for a WMVHD release imho.

OT, but is Bob having connection difficulties again? Been wondering where he's been.
