I might go.  Never been to one of these before, not sure what to expect.

I hadn't been to one before last year, Ian. It was a really enjoyable experience. Just being able to speak to other flightsimmers face to face was worth the entry price alone. I highly recommend it!

Not sure yet, Kevin. I want to stay at the Telford Central Premier Inn like last year, but they are charging a fair bit more for the rooms this year! <_< Someone must have told them about the show!

Great to hear there's another one, I went to last year's and having never seen high-end gaming computers before it was a real eye opener.  These machines are amazing and need to be seen in the flesh to really appreciate what your money could buy.  Plus there's all the simming and aviation related stuff to look at and buy. Don't know yet if I'll go this year, finances are tight.

I'll be going,if possible. Last year's show was very enjoyable, particularly my few minutes with an Oculus Rift headset.

Well worth going - I always learn something new from what others are doing.

I shall be there and if Pete Dowson is available I'll bring him along too. He'll be incognito as usual. :wink:

 

The North West Flight Simulator Group of which I'm a member will also be in attendance. They bring some good PCs and plenty of experience.

 

If you live in South Manchester / North Cheshire we have monthly meeting in Heald Green which you are more than welcome to attend.

Hi Ray. Hope to see you at Cosford, but before that, maybe at your NWFSG meet. Could you PM me the details please. Thanks.

 

Christopher, that is a bit sneaky by Premier Inn. Maybe it is to off-set the costs of all those Lenny Henry ads, eh?

Hope to see you there in May. :smile:

I will make sure to introduce myself to you this time, Ray! :smile:

I doubt that they are even aware of the FlightSim Show, Rick. It's just the usual rollercoaster ride you get when checking out Premier Travel Inn for prices. You just have to keep checking their website until an improved offer appears :smile:

I just wish these shows would be in the Summer instead as that's when we are in the UK.

I've been to every one of these so far with my family (they willingly go!). I'll definitely be going to this one too!

To anyone undecided if they want to go to the show Cosford has a superb museum with free entry. There's a Vulcan, TSR-2 and many other wonderful exhibits. Between the museum and the FS show it's a brilliant day out.

 

And its location in the middle of England makes travelling by road or rail not too long a journey.

It's also the only place in the world where you will see complete versions of all three V bombers (Avro Vulcan, Handley Page Victor, and Vickers Valiant).

The museum is excellent, a great day out on it's own.

 

I've just been persuaded to go, so see you guys there. I'm looking forward to it.

Nice one, Steve. Maybe we should all have some kind of name badge on?

Adrian - top man at NWFSG - has supplied us with badges so those of us in the group will be wearing ours.

 

Takes me back to the FS shows at the National Motorcycle Museum in Brum when we wore our badges so other members of CompuServe FS Group would recognise us. That would be mid 90s. How time flies.

Kevin / Steve. Look forward to seeing you both. :smile:

Be under the clock wearing a pink Carnation. :D

 

Plenty of time to work something out. Get your tickets now for the goody bag, usually two or three boxed products In there. There's probably something we already own, so it's worth arranging a swap meet near the end of the day.
