Postby chopper857 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 7:18 am

Hi all, my name is Martyn and I am TK42413 based with the UK Garrison,
In it's infinite wisdom work (FMC) has decided to send me to Detroit for a few day's in August landing the Sunday 19th and leaving on the 23rd :shock:
should be based around dearborn height's i think (still sorting that bit out at mo) just wondered if anyone would like to meet up for a drink and a chat or help at a troop if theirs one going on ? :cheers: . I've got enough time currently to sort some patches and like to bring over as well if you would like?

all the best

Martyn

Martyn,

Welcome to our forums!

I hope some of our members are able to make it out to see you. :D

I am located on the opposite side of the state , so will probably not be able to get to meet you. :?

Safe travels and keep us posted on your itinerary.

Martyn, always good to hear from another fellow Brit! I've lived here in Michigan for the past 15 years, came from West Sussex.
I've worked for Ford in the UK (Dunton, Basildon and Southampton), Germany and Belgium, but now I'm at GM!
Would be good to catch up with you, although I'm not sure of my commitments during those few days right now.
The Michigan Comic Con is on while you are here, and I'm sure some of the Great Lakes Garrison Members will be heading there.

Cheers :cheers:

Hello, I'm just across the river in Canada and as stated previously Michigan Comic Con is going on at the same time so I will be jumping the border and would meet up as well if its workable.

We actually have a whole room. It’s room 338 of Cobo Center. If you’d like I can get you a pass to get into the con on Sunday since you’ll only be there a bit. Post here or PM me and let me know.
