We have some friends in London, and I will try to track them down, and give them the info..they do not have email..(shock)..

Do you have any plans for visiting here in the future?? We are based here in Orlando, and if you are coming this way, let us know, and we can let you know where all the best trading areas are..and hopefully meet up w/ you

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the warm welcome,

To answer some questions, if there is enough interest, my friends and I would like to start a regular pin trading club, based in London, there are some other uk traders who are looking to start one birmingham way, for those who live north of the M25.
If anyone would like details, i can pass on the e-mail of the person to contact as i don't have the details of their meet.

My husband and I first visited WDW in Oct '99 and fell in love with the place, it was also our 1st Wedding Aniversary (*** we couldn't afford to do it as a honeymoon!)
I suprised him with another week there in Oct '01 for the 100 years and our 3rd WA.
But I have to wait until Oct '04 to come back, but we are already planning (and saving lots of money for pins!;) )
We are hoping to do a trip to DLRP before the end of the year but i am not sure if we can fit it in with everything else we do.

Have a great day everyone

hi, Toni, and welcome to the DIS and the Collectors Board. :wave:

The DIS also has several forums (http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=60) for our UK members, including a UK Community board. You could also try there to see if there's any interest. Nine people so far? Sounds like a better turnout than at our local Disney Store.

And you can ask one of the tech geeks -- err, gods :teeth: -- on the Tech Support (http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=43) board for help with one of the countdown timers.
