    Speaking as someone who goes every year to a massive weekend walking. You can hire YMCA hostels out of season. It's not too dear and they sleep loads of people.

    Also, the poll currently just makes Dewi look awkward...
    I am awkward, we know this...

    nah, with enough notice (by the end of this month) I can do any, just these are my preferred.

    I've got a 48 port switch if that helps. All the equipment you need for large scale LANs (except obviously a robust enough power system) is cheap on ebay.

    Any LANs that might be attempted are best done at a LAN centre so nobody (particularly internationals) have to worry about bringing computer equipment over.

    An alternative to a lovely English castle, and a quick way of getting around the problem of the birthday weekend looking like our best bet, would be a LAN. A LAN on a weekend with a high possibility of in game promo sounds nice...

    I'd be up for it, are there any facilities people are familiar with? Worth at least considering.

    Isn't this something that was mildly discussed at Rezzed, too? I seem to recall mention of inviting BRTD also.

    fuck BRTD. if anyone, we should invite the PCgamer people.

    Also, I just noticed the dates you guys are going for, I have a minecraft cocktail robot to build. so thats a no to most of those dates, I probably shouldnt even do it when I said I would.


    Youre all free to come to vienna, though.

    I think there were a couple of BRTD that we bumped into and this was brought up.

    9th/10th Looks best to me (since Dewi says he should be able to do it). How long should we keep this going before nailing down a date?

    Is there an Outfit meeting coming up that this could be brought to people's attention?

    Everyone that is interested in coming, help us make it happen by marking your availability at the follow link:

    I'd suggest we take the results from this poll as they stand on Saturday morning, August 17th, so we can start making enquiries with hotels/castles/gaming centres/airlines with dates and move things along.

    RPS and RTRS birthday get together, 5 pages in and no one's mentioned cake! Excuse me, I just need to go and check that the world is still turning...


    Anyway, if I can make the date we decide upon then I'll make a giraffe themed cake of some sort. I don't plan to vote on dates because I've no idea what I'm up to in November so there's no point planning around me. Just let me know what we decide and I'll see if I can make it.

    More on topic - a weekend later in the year is a good idea.
    Yeah and your agility training is dodging the big issue and charity workers on the street.
