Bangor Rev road trip
Writing about web page http://www.rev.org.uk
Despite yesterday's mammoth blog entry I didn't mention my Revelation weekend trip to Bangor (the one in North Wales not Northern Ireland), so here goes:
Travelling This didn't start too well as I had forgotten that I had parked in University House car park instead of Westwood and therefore didn't have any change to get out. I did test the entrance/exit system by putting my unpaid for ticket into the machine (I was trying to leave after 6pm so I thought it might be free), unfortunately for me, and the queue of cars behind me, it wasn't, so I had to reverse out and ring Thor to bring some money to get me out. I was giving Thor (plus Rich and Nikki) a lift to Bangor as well so didn't feel too bad about ringing him!
Tea We got to Bangor at 11pm after stopping at Keele Services for KFC (a tradition for Revelation road trips) and meeting Kelly (from Aberdeen Revelation) at the station.
Warning Do not try and drive around Bangor to find a parking space with 5 people, luggage and a saxophone in a car with a 1.2 engine – the hills are far too steep so you may end up rolling backwards!
Singing We spend most of Saturday learning songs ready for the concert on Saturday evening. I can't really remember much about it as I was so tired, but photos of the concert will be on the National Rev website soon.
Sunday We were performing at the Church where we had been sleeping and rehearsing so went to their morning service. It's a bit difficult to describe as it was quite different to all the other churches I have visited. Highlights include: the length (3 hours), the free worship (member of congregation starts singing a song – everyone joins in – then music group join in), Jess falling asleep and snoring during the service.

Just a post to let you know that at the start of this accademic year I will be launching a new website aimed at Bangor students and local buisinesess. The Idea being that students and buisinesses around bangor can communicate to each other. I'ts like a free advertising space, where members can post news about events happening around Bangor and review restaurants, pubs and clubs around Bangor. Most of the websites content will be submited in by students letting them put across their point of view. There will also be a forum, personal messages system plus a chatroom which you can use to share files from your computer.
Although we are not marketing the site until the start of the academic year it is up on the web allready. If you would like to have a look or if you have anything to contribute then please visit the site at www.BangorOnline.net
