Let's can the LAN idea then, board games, tableptop games and other sociable things.
Anyone know a decent place for us to set up for the weekend?
We need a good idea of numbers really.
Sites I've found good stuff on in the past:
And Dewi had that group accom page earlier.
There's also stuff like:
I'd second going to Vienna, but I'd probably wind up spending the entire weekend at Bermuda BraŘ.
youd spend the entire weekend at the Roboexotica, you mean.
its the 15th annual cocktail robotronics festival!
RobotChallenge, but tbh I should make two robotics trips a year to Vienna.
oh please. combining booze and bots is the most fun way to do it.
also, roboexotica started 5 years earlier ;D its already the 15th year and my third!
Heh, RobotChallenge was set up by one of the PhD students at my uni so the uni used to fund everything (including booze) while I was there :P
well the robots booze is on a pay what you want basis.
I am free on the weekend of 9-10 November. I do haave a lot of things going on around that date though, but I will try to make it there. Looking forward to this!
whoops. november, not december.
How does this look? It's not castle, but there is so much room for activities! London Luton airport isn't far away. Main downside I see is that the beds are stowaways and probably not the most comfortable.
So we are seriously doing the castle thingy! :D
We need an overnight venue that holds 20+ people, preferably self catering, and has room for board/tabletop games.
We need a venue for the gaming in an area where people can arrange their own accommodation nearby and we can grab food from nearby.
Personally I prefer the first idea, but I'm open minded on it. Any help looking for venues appreciated, as are any comments on the suggestions made thus far.
Well i was just surprised! I have never been in a castel so...
"separate teacher/leader bedrooms" - DIBS!!! :p
A castle in unlilkely - they tend to be remote and expensive.
Some kind of manor house is quite possible though.
We really need to know numbers though. Will set up a google form in a bit (unless someone else does it first)
19 Participants on the Doodle so far, two of whom can't make it on 9/10 Nov.
I haven't filled the Doodle in because I don't know for sure if I can make it. But I'll really try so make that 20!
I'd also vote for a major house or similar with room for us all and a kitchen and some board games.
