The Millennium Jam Organised Trip 31st Oct/7th Nov
« on: June 11, 2008, 01:03:31 PM »
This is the best balloon twisting convention in the world, now there's something for it to live upto this year.
I have been organising the trip across for the last few years & will be doing so again this year. So for those wishing to come with us we go for a week travelling out on Friday Oct 31st & returning on Friday 7th Nov.
I try & book eurostar from St Pancras for mid to late morning on the outward journey and we try to get back to London around 4.oo pm the following week.
The cost will include Eurostar from St Pancras to Brussels, a taxi to the venue, registration & shared accommodation in a self catering bungalow.
If you wish a room to yourself in the bungalow the additional cost is approx £60 or you can have a single room in the hotel for approx £195 extra.

The cost this year will be £325 with the eurostar cost paid to me & the rest of the money paid to Leo on arrival at the centre.
Deadline day is 1st Aug so that we get the cheapest price on eurostar, anyone wishing to join us after this date is more than welcome but you will need to book eurostar yourself for the same train as the group are on both ways, please be aware that the eurostar cost jumps considerably.
If you have any questions please ask here as I'm sure it will help others who may have had similar things on their mind as well.
We normally help decorate the lobby of the venue on the Saturday & the convention starts on the Sunday. This year for the first time there will be a special industry dinner on the Saturday which at the moment is being advertised for approx £28.oo which will be an added extra if you wish to attend but I'm sure I can do a deal on this :)
More details about the convention & who will be lecturing etc can be found here;

OK, it's time to send in your deposits if you wish to come on the trip, so far booked are,

Mandy & other half
Richard
Myself

with Becky & Thelma to confirm with deposit.

The others on the list at home I cant remember so if you do wish to travel with us the deposit money £69 has to be to me by the end of this month so that we get theeurostar at a bargain price.
Anyone wishing to book after this date can but you will need to book eurostar yourself on the exact same trains at whatever the cost is. A word of warning the price increase is substantial
Please PM me for the addres to send the deposit too.

Hi Graham am I too late?

I can book eurostar train on my own but are you sorting out accommodation? I see there is one lady so I can go in with her unless one of the fellas is her fella?

Can you email your bank details and I'll bacs it over what ever you need re deposits etc?

Becky I did email you from your website a few weeks back with no reply. I also plugged it on the forum.
I need no money, this has to be paid to Leo on arrival. If you wait till I receive the tickets I can tell you our seat numbers or better still give me a ring to sort things out. Number is on my website

Personally I can't afford not to go.

I have been once before and it completely inspired me. I learnt so much and really think its completely worth every penny.

There will be some amazing teachers from America - Don Caldwell, Addi Someli and many others, as well as European instructors. There are competitions, stage shows, jam sessions, FREE qualatex balloons and traders too.

If you are serious about twisting, you should book your ticket right away.
As I said, I can't afford not to go. Can you?

Danny
