The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

There is a distinct lack of information on how to sign up as a costumer, but if you go to the following Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/162854464155351/

There's a link to where you can register on their website, however you'll need to upload some pics of yourself and weapons etc, which can be found at http://www.feeltheforceday.com/register/costumer/

No idea what time we're supposed to be there for if general admission is 11:00am. I'll have to make a few enquiries.

I've messaged them to ask if we need to register as individuals, or can register as a group

Gooooooooood evening Colonial Marines! This is not a test. Time to rock it from the delta to the DMZ.

I've spoken to the Feel the Force organisers, they are looking into whether there is a table available for the Colonial Marines.

The building opens at 8am on the day, and everything needs to be ready to go by 10:30am; doors open at 11am until 6pm

There is parking, changing area and food (Special dietry requirements - please bring your own)

Please note that a large number of the guests are visually impaired so if you dont want something touched please leave it at home.

Looking at their firearms and knives policy I would suggest where possible to avoid sidearms and roll with M240s, M41A's and M56's

Both Crashdown and Bathors Lady have attended previously.

Readyline;

I was going to post about this myself, but I see you beat me to it.

All I will add is that there is LIMITED PARKING on site so if planning to attend GET THERE EARLY.

I'll be there, I'm sure Bethor's Lady is attending as a Predator Huntress too.

I would say its probably best to forgo a table.

As an aside, I found an info piece on weapons etc on the website last night - ill try and post it but basically you can take weapons as long as you follow a couple of instructions, such as being registered as a costumer, post a picture and have it inspected on the day.

Jade, as your in contact could you ask if this needs to be done for members going under the UKCM banner?

Af-firmative


Question has been asked, I will let you know if it needs signing off before the event? But I'd suggest uploading photos can't hurt

We are really trying to work out or processes for London this year so we are aware this is a work in progress. The rule of thumb is: If it could be mistaken for a real weapon by a layman in the street, it needs to be registered. We'll do the checking upon arrival so no stress there.

Anyone thinking of attending Feel the Force day as a costumer should join this group if they wish to ask questions...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/819562831537969/

If you are planning on attending as a costumer, you need to register using the web link I posted earlier and include pictures of your costume AND WEAPONS you are planning to bring on the day. There is info on the sign-up page as to what weapons are appropriate.

Pulse rifles should be OK as they're not real weapons, BUT full metal VP-70 pistols wont, so I shall be bringing my resin pistol to this event.
