1/4: Pin Meet - Saturday 5th April - Olympic Park

It looks like we have more than a handful of people that are interested in meeting up in the newly  opened south section of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this Saturday.

The weather looks ok-ish. Should stay dry if a little cool.

I suggest that we meet up at 'The Podium' near the Orbit. From what I can tell, this is the venue that houses the shop for the Orbit and where you can buy food and drink. I don't think we'll be able to take up tables/seats at the Podium itself, but hopefully we'll find a patch of grass nearby. It looks like it's in the same area that the Coca-Cola pin trading centre occupied - it's a sign!

My original suggestion was a picnic and pin trade - I'll let you decide if you feel like the picnic!

I suggest we meet at 12pm, to give people time to get there. The park opens at 10am, so it'll give a chance for any queues to disperse.

Click here to take a look at the QEOP news page describing the opening on Saturday.

Click here to view the latest park map - you can see 'The Podium' marked at the bottom of the map near the Orbit.

Please remember that we're only there to trade and swap pins - no selling!

Hope to see lots of you there on Saturday.

The talk of a podium next door to the Orbit makes me think of Pole Dancing establishment. .... Ok that must be me then . Setting up "shop" on the site of "The Olde" Coca Cola Pin Trading spot is very ironic. Especially as we be all on the outside trading this time where all the fakes were to be found during 2012, (and some of the more colourful Pins for pay !!! geezers from all over the Globe ) Oh Happy Days.

Please check you travel before you leave. I believe that the Central Line is shut to Liverpool Street, but operating between Liverpool Street and Leytonstone.
