    It sounds like you had quite an adventure fighting for the middle. I got separated from the rest of the group during the process of getting through the various security checks and couldn't see you when I finally got into the arena. I was particularly sorry to miss that singalong!

    I'm really glad I attended the meetup. Not being the most outgoing person in the world, I had been a little apprehensive about the idea of just wandering into a modestly sized group of people I'd never met before. But I needn't have worried, everyone was really welcoming and I felt at home literally straight away. This has never happened to me before, anywhere, ever. And to be in the Cart & Horses too - I wasn't expecting this but I was immediately awestruck when I stepped through the door, when it hit me that Maiden played on that stage (albeit a very different Maiden to the one we know now), that's the bar where Steve took that phonecall from the other band claiming to have bagged the name ... that pub really has a tangible spirit of place. And when it's full of other Maiden fans as well ...

    The feeling of being part of something big and special.

    Scream for me Chicago!

    Only 9 days until the Chicago gig! I figure we're mostly meeting up at the gig itself, but I'll open a PM chat for gig talk.

    Has anyone heard from Travis, incidentally? I'm worried the excitement might have finished him off.

    Yeh, he was on here saying there was a clip up of the whole show he'd attended. And that it sounded better.

    Huh. For some reason that picture showed up on my phone, but it's not showing up on my computer. Very odd.
