Did I meet you there?

A lot of the guys/girls on this forum have been to the Discovery Centre, some on more than one occasion.


Thanks for the feedback. The people who work there love the place too :s5 . Hey.. you weren't the guy whose parents almost had to physically drag him out of the place were you?

huddo, from time to time I work on the front reception... so assuming you paid and didn't sneak in through a hole we don't know about, we may well have met.
