    TDH / RPF at Manchester

    Hi Guys & Girls

    I have been asked by Simon to get things going on this, we need people to sign up for the Prop Party at the Gmex in Manchester on the 21st of July, I need to know if you will be attending and what props you will be showing, I will be doing a thread for the NEC Prop Party in November alittle bit further down the line but if you are interested in doing that let me know, but for now I need definate people who want to attend this one in July, and as we had so much fun on the last one in Birmingham I know more people want to do it.

    Bobatrooper / Snowtrooper - Jango Fett Display / AtAt Driver and Possible Snow Commander too and maybe a few helmets.



    So let me know guys so I can get names and stuff to simon so we can have enough passes for the day for the people who are displaying.

    Thanks

    Bobatrooper

    Do a search for the Arden Hotel as that is the one we stayed in on the last one and its the one everyone will be staying in on this one too but I will confirm this with simon for the birmingham gig.

    Hi everyone

    Time is coming along and I need people to let me know who is going to be coming along to the Manchester expo for the prop party with the rpf, I need to know names and also what your bringing to display as space is limited at this one as its smaller than memorabilia in Birmingham, so please let me know so I can sort out the arrangements with super trooper on the rpf ready in time for this event on 21st July, details will then go up for the Birmingham show in November.

    Thanks

    Boba trooper (dave)

    Sorry Dave to step in

    Just a quick reminder this event is fast approaching and the event organisor is now getting on my case to submit names of those diplaying their Props and costumes, we will give this a another week or so and then the event will be closed down and it will be to late to attend as a free displaying guest

    also one other thing
    For the november event we really want to spread the word about a first for the UK, the biggest gathering of Boba Fett, Jango fett costumers at one event ......... please sign up for that also and spread the word for the ultimate Group Picture with Jeremy Bulloch

    sorry Dave lol

    Np mate, lots of people looked at thread but no sign ups is this what the dented helmet has come too, no one wanting to sign up and do this one day for some fun and to meet other prop builders and see other peoples stuff, the last one we done in november was so much fun and everyone had a blast, this one and the one coming up in november will be even better so come on guy lets show them all what we are about on the dented helmet and bring on the fetts and hunters from all over, sign up now for this one day event and keep urselfs in mind for the november show.

    Come on guys this is a fantastic event, you really will enjoy it. My eyes were on stalks last time I went and to meet up with fellow fettheads is really something, you can actually talk to someone about a patterson squeegee and NOT get weird look lol.

    Really wish I could attend this one fellas, but count me in for brum. All the best with it,

    Ok, its just that the Event Owner only gives us enough free entry passes to those Displaying their props, and we have to submit those names, unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this.
    We are given the Space to display for free for Prop Displayers only, hope you understand.

    Thanks for the PM.

    For the record i will write this statement once regarding the RPF and TDH's Involvements in attending events.

    I have been entrusted by the owner of the RPF and TDH to take their Global reputation and name and promote it to the best of my ability around the UK and also into Europe.
    While attending events the RPF and TDH are allowed to both display its brand and promote the Forums to the general public, and in certain circumstances those attending the events under the RPF and TDH banner are also allowed to promote and sell their own products.
    The Events we attend are the High end of the Convention circuit in the UK and i am constantly networking and negotiating with Big Event companies in the UK, Ireland and Europe to take what we do on the road.
    Now ask anyone who goes to an event in a buisness capacity what they are charged for the space they are given to display, sell or advertise at Conventions, the prices are astronomical.
    I have managed to negotiate with these people and sell the idea of a Convention Prop Party to the point where we are given all the above for free .........

    I am not interested in little prop Parties out the back of some little Boy Scout Club House, my plan is to help the RPF and TDH become a house hold name within the UK Convention circuit a regular feature, therefore i am not about to jepordise that by giving out free tickets to free loaders, infact the tickets i give out have to be accounted for as they are given to me by the event organisor.

    Mistakes and Problems were abundant at the last prop party, namely free loaders........ the new rules are If you Display you get in to the event for free, and you monitor your own section, it is not an opportunity to set up your display and then disappear for the day on a jolly around the event, if this is found to be the case you get told to pack up and go home. Myself, the other members present, the RPF and TDH are not responsible for the Props on the display ....the prop maker is. The event as a whole is an added bonus and time is allocated to members to enjoy the Event.

    The Rule of thumb for all those attending the UK RPF/TDH events is you let us know what your displaying and those displaying get free access to the event, if you want to come along as an RPF or TDH member to the event as a non displayer ...... you queue and pay the 5 entry fee like everyone else.
