Post by: AndyRCM on September 01, 2009, 08:37:01 PM
Hello everybody - just to you know that tickets are now on sale - you can buy them through our main (home) page using the 'donate' button near the bottom of the screen, this will then take you to a paypal screen. Tickets are £4.50 for adults and £1.00 for children and will be on sale until the 31st October and then will only be available on the day at the higher price of £6.00 for adults and the children's tickets remain at £1.00. If you need to pay by other means please do let either one of us (admins) know.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Andy, Linda and the rest of the Admin team.

Post by: Panther on October 20, 2009, 04:43:23 PM
Quick question.......

What age you classing children as children ?

Thinking of bringing my nephew with me and was going to pay on the door, I think he's 15, might be 16 !
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: AndyRCM on October 20, 2009, 05:08:31 PM
Children are being classed as 16 and under . . . okay?

Something I have noticed with RV is that if you run a regular event over time, less people attend.

The same happens with one of my favorite bands if it plays at the same venue. First year they will get a massive turn out. The next year there will be far less people. I guess once is enough for some people.
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: Blackpanther on October 20, 2009, 10:16:53 PM
If its worth going to then people will go the second time. There's still plenty of time for people to buy tickets and people will turn up on the day.
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: The Twins on October 21, 2009, 07:24:25 AM
I notice you haven't bought a ticket yet StarshipUk  :o
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: StarshipUK on October 21, 2009, 03:53:23 PM
I notice you haven't bought a ticket yet StarshipUk  :o

I will be getting one before the end of the month  ;)

Did not mean to sound negative, but it is an odd observation I have noticed over time. I would like to see a good turn out. You have sold more tickets for this, then I have sold for RV so far.
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: woody.cool on October 21, 2009, 04:02:36 PM
OK, so, I've paid for my ticket (ages ago)

Do we get a proper ticket through the post? or are you just keeping a list of names for when we turn up?
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: Panther on October 21, 2009, 04:47:16 PM
Will we get name badges  ;D
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: AndyRCM on October 21, 2009, 06:08:47 PM
You will be getting a ticket in the post, we will be sending out the first week of november . . . ;)

Yes to the name badges too! ;)

I've already bought my ticket, but I just bought a second ticket separately this morning, my wife is coming too!  ;D
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: Andy on October 26, 2009, 01:49:09 PM
I will be buying mine on Wednesday (Pay day!)
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: AndyRCM on October 27, 2009, 10:19:11 PM
ONLY four days to go guys for the reduced rate tickets, after that - they will only be available on the day at £6.00!

Andy
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: The Twins on October 28, 2009, 04:10:57 PM
Tickets will be posted out beginning of next week UNLESS you PM me to tell me you want to collect on the day, in which case I will hold onto them for you. (We are not responsible for any loss in the post due to the strikes).  To be able to collect your ticket on the day you will have to show ID (if I don't know you!!) or tell me your ticket number (which I will email/pm to you).

Can the tickets be sent using RFC 1149?
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: AndyRCM on October 28, 2009, 05:49:31 PM
What does that mean? You have lost me completely! :(

Post by: AndyRCM on October 28, 2009, 05:51:57 PM
The answer then is no!  :P
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: Phu on October 28, 2009, 06:26:39 PM
Ah... I sense judicious use of IP-over-carrier-pigeon :)

But you quote the original RFC 1149. This has been superceded by RFC 2549, which adds QoS and encryption:

http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2549.html

Of course, Pigeon Category 5 is an unreliable medium. Perhaps Andy should consider delivery via a more reliable media?

Also want another Child & Adult (Can't remember if I'd told you) as the person doesn't have Paypal. I'll give you the money when I see you next

Well, I've just had confirmation from Linda what ticket number I am, as I'm picking it up on the day.
Look forward to seeing you all on the day (if I don't see you before)

Thanks to all of you that have said you will pick your tickets up on the day! ;) saves loosing them in the post.

Andy and Linda
Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: thx1138 on November 01, 2009, 05:39:34 PM
erm, does picking them up on the day, just mean like turning up?  ;D

Or do I have to like turn up, say hello Andrew, please may I have my tickets, and you give me and my wife our tickets, and I say thankyou very much Andrew. Then I set foot into the hall where it is held, and then you pop up, and say "oh hello THX good to see you, have you got your tickets?" and I say why yes, yes I have here they are, and give you my tickets.  ;D ??? :o

Title: Re: Tickets Now Available . . .
Post by: Phu on November 01, 2009, 05:57:59 PM
Going by the last open day, you turn up at the door, say "Hi, I'm thx1138 I believe you have my tickets", Andy or Linda then says "Yes I have them here" and hands them over to you and you walk straight in and nothing more is said :)

Kind of an all-in-one process.

Your ticket counts as a receipt and a "get back in" card if you need to step out for any reason.

You will also have a wrist-band - these show us that you have showed us your ticket, just in case you need to pop out.
