My company wouldn't dare trying that one on with me.

Are you self-employed? :lol:

No, but I have been with my present company for 20 years. They have to treat me well, because they would be in a mess without me. ;)

should be able to make it this year dependent on finding somewhere reasonable to stay. Not waiting around in the freezing cold at the bus station like we did a couple of years ago

Those who need a place to stay over please can you let me know.

 

It will at the world famous Backpackers hostel just off piccadilly

 

Cost depends on numbers but will be around £14 ( I think )

 

I have a list of all people who I think will need a place so i'll pm you when I get home from work.

 

Thanks

Guys,

 

you will have all been sent an email by Mark (swindon) confirming he has paid for the all the tickets to Bodean's Superbowl Party!

 

A huge thanks to Mark for finalising all the payments and helping me out with this :)

 

Looking forward to meeting you all again come February and lets hope everything goes our way and, against the odds, we will be watching the Pats together in Superbowl 44

Yeah, good work Mark. Thanks for sorting the payment out for this. I appreciate how difficult it can be.

 

I'm quite happy we're downstairs to be honest. Makes stumbling to the toilet easier, and safer :)

I'll try not to walk into the mirror next to the toilet this year, did it in front of everyone downstairs last year. :rolleyes:

 

Yeah thanks Mark and Damien for getting things sorted. B)

Cheers for sorting this out. It will be good to meet many of you at last and put names to faces. The only thing I have to work out is what to do after the game. I live 10 miles away in Beckenham, so may well "hang around" (if there is anywhere..) for the first train home.

 

It's a shame we won't be seeing the Pats, but there we go. :(

Just to add my thanks to the guys for organising this event.

 

We always look forward to our annual trip to Bodeans for SB :) , and it's such a good night that Mrs PatsFanUK is joining us again this year for only her second ever SB night..!!..

Just to add to what Patsfanuk said, thanks to everyone for organizing this event. It will be a bit different this year. It will be interesting to experience what it will be like downstairs instead of upstairs and how that will affect the atmosphere of the event. At least we won't have a draft everytime someone opens the door.

No Patriots in the SB this year :angry: , but the event will still be good, because it is the members of the UKPatriots that make it a good event regardless of who happens to be playing.

On that note can I just say that I am very much looking forward to meeting you all again B) .

You're right about which pub it is.

I've just booked my coach ticket, and I get into Victoria at 1.20pm.

Hopefully going to meet up with a few of the other guys, before going to the Pub.

I'll send an e-mail update to everybody a bit later with addresses etc for the Pub & Bodeans

Guys,

 

due to personal issues I won't be able to attenf the Superbowl party.

 

I'm gutted as I was really looking forward to it but unfortunately I have other things to see to that day.

 

I'd like to say thanks to Mark (Swindon) for all his help in arranging this. He has done a terrific job and I hope we can work together in arranging this again next year! I think he's owed a few drinks ;)

 

Sorry for the lateness in this guys...hopefully I'll be seeing you all later in the year for the roadtrip :)

For hockey fans, and I guess if anyone wants a New England flavour to the night, just noticed on Bodean's sports scheduling that they'll have the live sportscast of Boston Bruins at Montreal on immediately before the big game.

Was hoping for Celtics-Magic. Talking of the Cs, what a game against the Lakers on right now.

Just been notified that unfortunately somebody has had to drop out from this, therefore there is 1 space now available for anybody who would like to join the other 27 of us.

Please contact me ASAP if you would like to use this space. Cost is £25, not a lot for a great evening & night with a load of Pats Fans.

Cheers

Mark
