Well Leeds is just up the road really so i'm sure there'll be a few Midlanders that will be there to support it.

Should be there :)

Need many people as possible, just to support the show really so it can possibly be held again, maybe bigger and better!
Would be nice to have a ragular show up here for a change!

If not, you could always renew it online by clicking the 'Join the BTS Online' link at the bottom of my signature, or selecting the BTS E-store link above :)

Well i'm going so there'll be at least one "member of staff", and i'll attempt to answer any questions people/future members have about the society if existing members point them in the right direction and they grab me in the midst of controlling my lad from buying everything. We'll be wearing BTS tee-shirts (obviously :))
Not sure if any other staff or admin members are available (or it's within reasonable travelling distance)

Matthew Baines

BTS tee-shirts

OOOO OOOO OOOO OOOO i want one

Well i was going to link to our e-store and let you have a look at what we have for sale, but it seems it is in the middle of being updated / refurbished so the merchandise section is blank.
We had some nice new designs at the BTS expo too.

You could try PM'ing that nice man off the TV, our Martin Nicolas, and if he's not filming / working he'll get back to you, or use the contact function in the e-store to ask "the question".

Will you be signing people up to the BTS provided they cough up some cash? If so, get my membership pack ready. I think its about time I joined!

All i will be able to do is press gang....sorry....advise people to become a member online, You can join the BTS by going to the e-store :).
(if you click the "Become a BTS Member" link in my signature it'll take you straight there)

Andrew, if you go to the e-store and click the "contact us" link you can send a cheque / postal order to the address at the foot of the page. Pop a covering letter in the envelope so Angela can process it.

I'll second that. I've downloaded a load of back issues and find them a great read. Even on subjects I know nothing or have any interest about!

Good to see you're taking advantage of the downloads section,

You don't know you have (or haven't) an interest untill you've read them though eh? :)
