I'm pleased to announce that a fourth `OFTDs` annual event will take place on Saturday 7th of October 2017. This will be again in the city of Derby.
Questions you may want answering.
Whats a OFTDs event ?
Its basically a once a year get together by members of this place. We spend the day watching clips that are not available on the internet and also rather a lot of the day chatting in a convivial manner about all things TOTPs, the dance routines and dancers. I urge all members to come along to this. I guarantee you will enjoy the day and be made to feel most welcome and part of OFTDs.
How can i attend this ?
If you want to attend, all you have to do is let me know on this thread or alternatively email me. I will email you back with details of the venue.
Whos eligible to attend ?
This will be open to members of OFTDs who regularly post on here, or have amassed a number of posts or who have attended in the past. I cannot accept members with zero posts for this.
How many places are they ?
Lots of places, the room is big.
Will it cost me anything to get in ?
NO. This is a private invitation only gathering. The general public are not allowed in. I will be funding the event. I will not be charging any of the attendees an admission fee and im not making any profit from it.
What time will it be from ?
We have the room from 12 midday until 8pm in the evening. If folk want to arrive earlier, then thats fine, just mingle in the bar area.
These past two years whats also become very popular is the after-event session in the real ale pub just down the road. This usually lasts till around midnight. Rather than having to dash away to catch your train why dont you consider booking into the hotel venue/or any of the other hotels around that area for the night. That way you could stay on and enjoy the chat and good atmosphere till late.
Any free nosh on offer ?
Yes the venue caterers will be providing a finger buffet and teas & coffees. These will be available around 1.15pm. The buffet is a major cost for me and any contributions on the day will be gratefully accepted. Ya know, about a tenner will help, but no biggie if anyone forgets to !
What are the folk like who attend ?
Ive now met up with about 25 or so members of OFTDs and you wont find a friendlier bunch. If you haven't met me/us before, you will be surprised how quickly you are made to feel part of the gang.
Will the clips be shown back to back ?
No, they will be split up into segments, giving us plenty of breaks for refreshments and chat.
Why dont you name the venue on this post ?
Well as its an invitation only event, i dont want gatecrashers, and they wouldn't get in even if they tried.
What time will the actual screenings begin ?
They will commence at 2pm. This gives us lots of time to chat and socialize before hand.
Is there a closing date to be included for this ?
Yes, i need to know whos attending by Wednesday the 20th September. The reason is i need to know how much food to order, as im paying per head i don't want to be ordering to much, or i guess to little.
Will i regret not going ?
Yes you will. You will miss out on viewing some really good footage that may not get into the public domain for quite a while or indeed ever and also miss out meeting some like minded enthusiasts. Derby is conveniently situated in central England. Road and rail connections are ideal.
I do know that Rubberband Man, GiLuRo, Gorgeous Daze, Doc, Sueforever & AC/PD have contacted me already confirming their attendance, so they need not contact me. Forgive me if anyone else has let me know and ive forgot. As from now i will keep a list.
Obviously, its a little tooo far for me. Sounds like a fantastic weekend, especially watching some video which I would guess be far better quality than that of YT. Just like to wish you all a great time and have a beer for me (we have ours COLD). Might get to see some pics or stories down the track!. Do any of the girls manage to put in an appearance?
