    RPS Anniversary Meetup 2016 - Oh God Here We Go Again

    Yes, it's that time of year again. It's time for me to pester, annoy and generally wind you all up as we progress towards organising yet another RPS Anniversary Meetup! For the 2016 edition we've already agreed a few things...

    Location: Malmö, Sweden or København, Denmark
    As a part of the rotational system, 2016 is to be outside the UK. We've been to Western Europe, so now we're off to Scandinavia! Having consulted various things, we need to look at locations around Malmö and København. Flights will likely be in and out of København for most people, and we need to consider ground transport as well. Hire cars may need to be a thing with some designated drivers.

    Date: 4th - 6th November 2016.


    I'm also going to put this warning out there. Once you have paid your deposit you will be expected to pay the balance, even if you drop out. I take significant financial risk with this (to the tune of nearly £2000), and some of you gave me significant stress in the past with not committing or bailing. Deposits are binding, and if you do need to drop out you need to find a replacement.

    Do not fuck with the Internet. It is smarter, meaner, and far more ill-tempered than you will ever be.

    So it's the RPS Meeetup: The Bridge edition?



    I'm really doubt I can do it this year. I don't even have a passport *sigh*

    Does the rotational system mean you'll be hitting the States one of these days?

    Sino, plenty of time to get a passport! Only takes a few weeks

    As for the USA? Err, we would need a rich benefactor.

    Heh it would be much cheaper to crowd fund a flight for a North American or two than it would to ship a couple of dozen Europeans over to the US.

    I wanna say I'm in. I really do. But the whole you've gotta pay everything regardless is difficult because the only reason I've ever dropped out has been for financial reasons <_< That said I'm 100% debt free as of April this year so fuck it, I should be able to manage.


    On a side note, I absolutely loathe flying. Absolutely. I'll do it, but if anyone fancies a week long road trip through the maybe France and Belgium, definitely The Netherlands and Germany (I seem to recall talking about this whilst at the castle last year?) and can drive (yea I'm that guy) hit me up! Long shot I know.

    I'd note that this isn't for taking sign ups or whatever yet - it's about finding accommodation and planning that stuff first.

    In regards to payment, you're on the hook after paying the deposit unless you find somebody willing to take your slot. If your place is taken, that's absolutely fine. I just can't be dealing with some of the ridiculous shit that has happened in the past, nor can I afford to pay for somebody who just doesn't turn up.

    As for transport? I'm torn as to whether flying and then hiring a car is the best approach, or maybe doing the long road trip.

    Aye, but it also costs over £70 and that's before I've even thought about paying for anything else. :/

    While I doubt I can make it this year, I do think it should be possible to supply a place to sleep for those who undertake the roadtrip from the UK to the cold polar bear invested area's of europe.

    Sino I'll put you in my suitcase. I need someone there who'll walk into a desk in the middle of the night.
