Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

2nd Milton Keynes Xscape trip, 7th August (+ September?)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
The next visit to Milton Keynes Xscape will be Saturday 7th August. Put it in your diaries.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I get the impression people would also like a September trip.
The largest number of votes for September were (marginally, so far) for the 25th and that would spread the visits well.
However there is almost nothing in it and any special circumstances might be taken into account. For example people who cannot manage 7th Sad (and can only do certain of the dates in September); or people who are likely to bring someone with them who didn't get a vote. snowHead too snowHead too

But do people actually want a third trip, and do people want to settle the date now?

Who is coming on the 7th August?
I think Michelle, homphomp, jonpim, Austin 7, Wear the Fox Hat, skanky, me (snowball) and who else? (kids? partners?)

As regards food I shall enquire how much it would cost to have hot food provided beside the slope (as the tobogganing group did while we were there last saturday). Personally I like the idea.

I shall then do a poll to see if people want it (and when: first? during?), or would prefer to eat together beforehand at ASK or elsewhere nearby. I should point out that the latter would take much longer.
Or a third possibility, we could bring food and have a mass picnic overlooking the slope (if they would allow that, they might not).

PS If you haven't voted in the poll then still do so for the sake of september dates.

Sorryaustin7, skimming over the old posts I missed your "not". Embarassed
So come in September, when you said you can come, and meanwhile we could meet up in 2 or 3 weeks on a weekday while the half pipe still exists and my wife is in Spain for a conference. (She doesn't ski and clases my ski videos as pornography. Some truth in that.)
Perhaps Fox might make it too.

Linds, When can you do in September?

I have discovered that we can order FOOD to be eaten overlooking the slope (as the toboggan party did last time) for £5.50 each, including a drink. The choice would be, as before, a chicken curry, chile con carne or a vegetarian pasta dish. (It looked quite good)

We could eat before skiing (perhaps 6.00 to ski at 7.00, when the slope reopens after grooming), or perhaps ski first and eat at 8.30 or 9.00; after which those who wish can continue to ski untill 11.00.

I shall put this on another thread. Could people please register if they want this food.

In case you did not come last time: the cost for skiing is £35.00 for 4 hours including ski and boot hire if required. (a special saturday evening offer called Phat Night).
2 hours costs the normal evening rate of £30.00)
Ski clothing (but not gloves) can be hired too.

Will it still be there by 7th Aug?

Probably won't be, it depends how quickly it ages. Last week they planned to close at start of August. If they have to remake it before August they they will have to decide if they'll close it early or rebuild and stay open longer, or keep patching it till the end of July. I think it's the first indoor half pipe, at least in this country, so it's a bit experimental.

Unfortunately (b**ger, *@@***, @^^@@@) my wife, Cathy, pointed out last night that I agreed to go to a concert on the 7th with our niece. So I can't go.

However, having started to organise the food etc I'll carry on.
I'll just have to make do with a few stars on my report card and meet you all in September (assuming that happens).

Michelle, Not sure, got a few friends from Brighton who want to go up so trying to sort out a date. May also be on my mates 3rd stag do at the cricket at Old Trafford, but that could be the weekend after??? Also would rather go when the halfpipe was gone. I'll let you guys know though.

ps if someone asks you to do a questionare when you go to the Escape - do it and you'll get £5 off. So go into the Xscape area before paying for your "phat" night, get the discount and use it...............then try and blag another one for next time Wink

I am thinking about going up in the morning and having a lesson early afternoon... In the vague hope that it might make me stop being such a girlie, and just get me a little more relaxed... before 22:15 Madeye-Smiley [don't U dare say a word NehNeh NehNeh ] So, fancy some shopping Very Happy

alexpresland just put a post on the old Milton-Keynes June-visit-thread saying he wants to bring a load of South-coasters along on the 25th September, so I think, given that the 25th is already has the bigest vote that may seal it as the September date. (Sorry Pimettes and mountainmad, perhaps we could make a subsidiary visit for those like you (?))
Would that suit you homphomp ? I can make any September date but have had to withdraw from the 7th Aug one, unfortunately.

Well, I think it may be the most popular but since the poll was just who was free on those dates and didn't say how many they were bringing and if they would still want to come if we had an August meet its not quite clear. And also there is the matter of those who couldn't manage August 7th.
In some ways I think I was doing better just collating what people posted than with the poll.

Hey you lot! I do believe you are making fun of me. I'm a very sensitive chap, you know. I will probably need counselling now. I wonder if I can sue for psychological damage? A trainee doc got half a million not so long ago coz she was mistakenly jabbed by a needle. Being teased on the internet - in full view of millions of people - must be worth at least that....

And what is a Fitzwilliam, when it's at home? Is the Naught Word Codebook published anywhere?

Good old Google answered the question about k, coz here is a portrait.
I hope these naughty boys haven't put you off snowHeads k - they really a nice lot most of the time.
