Twist & Shout 2018
« on: February 26, 2017, 02:19:35 PM »
They announced the dates for Twist & Shout 2018, for the past couple of years I have
been unable to attend due to a date clash with the Blackpool Magic Convention.

Well for next year they have exactly the same conventions dates 17th/21st so
there I was thinking oh dear yet another year when I'm unable to attend.

It took me a few minutes to realise that Blackpool is on In Feb and for the first time I can
remember Twist & Shout will be in January so it looks like Vegas here I come............baby ;-)

If anyone wanted to come along on the Vegas trip next year I will add the details as we get them,
registration is $325 on the super early bird which is up till 22nd July. So if the pound surges
against the dollar that would be the time to book.

Registered for Twist and shout, tick.
Hotel reservation sorted, tick.

Purchase flight ticket, thought booked.
Did you know you are unable to buy a plane ticket unless you have a valid passport.
So a quick dash to the post office for them to double check it and approve the pictures
and the application for new passport has been sent off.
They are holding my ticket for two weeks so all should be OK...........fingers crossed.

"....I also wanted to give the rest of you all a heads up, That the Early bird registration price of $375 is still in effect, and will be till 11/23/17.
After that the price goes up to $425. I will be out of the office from Mid November till the end of the year, and will be back beginning of January."

Had a nice couple of days sightseeing, went to see a show menopause, then onto
the pinball museum and then onto the neon museum. Janet showed us around
and was fab and then took us to a fab OKs style pub that was amazing.

All back safe and sound from Twist and Shout.
I will start posting pictures tomorrow after catching up on some sleep.

I usually post from the event but decided to sit about chatting and catching
up with people I only see every now and again. I also made it a challenge to
go up and introduce myself to quite a few people I have never met before.

I found this so much fun that I will actually suggest it to Patty that they put
something into the welcome pack that you have to say hello to 5 new
people you have never met before and write there names down
and perhaps have a draw for a free T-shirt or something similar.

It's just a thought.

Here we go with the pictures then, the first few are a little touristy
as we arrived a few days early to visit a few places.

Notice the lovely view of the 24 air conditioning units that we could see from our room.

The room was pretty basic, Olivia who we went with was upgraded and
had a very nice room compared to ours.
