Wouldn't Gordon Ramsey be more amusing (or possibly dangerous!)

Where are they filming Hell's Kitchen? (Although I suspect their anti-gate crashing would be somewhat more effective than Sainsburys :)).

Lolz.. That's Wicked..
I was stopped by a security this morning like around 4am in the 24 hr Sainsbury off cromwell road. Luckily he was being very nice and polite though. This time we could jus skate in and grab lotsa bites.

Right, we need a supply of these flyers and I like Annas suggestion... go in one at a time... after 10 or 15 they will surely see the rediculous nature of this???

I reakon we could even get a bit of media coverage for this (TOTALLY NOT ASSOCIATED WITH ANY ORGANISED SKATE MEDIA) ...

Its the kinda thing they like,.... big superstore cocks up on marketing plan LOL

I doubt it. They will lose face and say look its a mistake in the part of that store let all skaters in. If they say BAN them another supermaket will have a nice campaing saying oh we welcome you...

Oh this is for SURE... the head office would immediately BAN all skaters... they would have to for their insurance company.

We are only allowed into places that are ignorant of this situation.

we could have a long orderly line of skaters in visible distance of the store (not too close though), & then send 2-3 skaters in at a time & as one group gets turned away the next group will set off, the old group going to the back of the line.
& at the end if they totaly refuse to let us in then we could surround the store, they won't possibly be able to block of the whole of every exit, they won't have enough guards.

also if we organise something for people to say, so we give a good reasonable speech to the guards & just repeat the same thing all day long. :evil:

As the flyer's advertising luches - why not buy a sandwich, packet of crisps &/or a drink

unless your in need of alchohol buy something realy petty or skate around the store & then tell the guard they didn't have what you wanted.

But then if they let you win then don't rub it in their faces by continuing it, that's just boring & mean :evil:

:x The Marble Arch's Sainsbury's is the closest shop to the Park. Do you really want us to be banned from there or what? Most of the times we have no problem shopping there - we just go straight and start picking up things to buy.

If you flash mob the place, all you're going to achieve is giving a bad image of all skaters. You'd better go there one by one, as per normal, with the flyer.
