UK Tokai Owners Convention Enrolment

Post by JohnA » Wed Jan 28, 2009 5:48 am

OK we've finally got the ball rolling. The convention is going to be in Leeds, venue to be confirmed, and the proposed date is Saturday March 7th 2009.

Reply to the thread if you can attend and I'll add your name to the list, if we can get 20 definites then it's on! If the date is no good, but you would really like to attend, please reply and we'll see what we can do about re-arranging the date.

Just to add, any forum member will be very welcome, you don't need to be an old-time or have 000's of posts, you dont even need to have a Tokai guitar! If you are interested please come along :D


LIST OF ATTENDEES


1) Stratman323 Mike
2) JohnA John
3) Mirrorboy Tom
4) AlanN Alan
5) IainBlack Ian (depending on FA Cup replay !)
6) DaveWW Dave
7) Adrian Non-member - AlanN's mate
8) Japaxes Gerald

HOTELS NEAR THE VENUE Venue details will be PM'd to atendees.

Probably best to check where everyone eslse is staying, would be good to all stagger off to bed from the same bar, and we might even get a block-booking discount!!

medium budget:

this is the best of the three, although it's probably more expensive, still worth checking for any deals:

We also need to decide what we are going to bring to the party (apart from ourselves). Depending on space, I thought I would bring:

1980 Springy ST80
1980 Breezy TE70
2007 ES130

I was keen on this from the outset but the fact that I work on Satudays and the distance to Leeds means that I'm going to miss the first of what will hopefully become a regular thing.

I just wanted to wish you guys the best of luck and hope it's a lot of fun.

All the best.

Chris

Iain Black is in depending on FA Cup replay (EFC v LFC). If LFC win then I will probably be going to the match unless I can squeeze in the morning. If EFC win then my wife will be going so I will have to bring the baby along with my babies if you get my drift.

What timings are we looking at?

I would bring my TST-40 for qulaity comparisson and my TST-55 with the surf green body and matching headstock for rarity value.

I think we'll be looking at a mid-late morning start and about a 6:00pm finish.

Keep tight hold of the TST-55! I know of at least one person who might try and make a getaway with that one!! :evil:

Now who would that be? :lol:

Are we inviting Bob & Co. from Tokai UK? It would be good if Rich from Richtone could make it too - I assume Rich will have read this?

That surf-green headstock is so nice!!

Well Mike, you've just got yourself a job, thanks for volunteering :wink: Drop Bob & Rich an email and see if they're coming.

I've just confirmed the date with the club manager. They OPEN at 12 and 6pm FINISH is OK. The car park at this club can accomodate 40-50 cars so I have the pub with 100+ car spaces as backup if the numbers suddenly mushroom.

I'll bring my Goldstar TST-55 and a Fender Pro Reverb
