Thought a dedicated thread for the meet ups as a whole would be a good idea - something the mods can sticky (which is handy, seeing as half the folks who were also eager for an SO:UK sticky thread are now mods
Rightio, getting the next meet up organised has been well overdue, so time to get some proposals into action.
- A Northern
meet is next up in the rota, seeing as the last two were in London and the South West, so that's what I'm aiming for. Liverpool's worked for the couple of Northern meets we've had so far, but I'm open to other suggestions, so long as there's a decent place in mind for stopping and drinking, some decent spots for a walk about, and a Pizza Hut for the usual Walchy-funded meal.
Suggestions or recommendations for overnight accomodation would be handy information for folks from distant locations and using long-distance transportation.
- Suggestions for ideal weekends for the meet would be handy, and the sooner one can be decided on, the sooner people can make sure they've got time booked off work (looking at you, Rick
) and train tickets and accomodation can be booked. Having just spotted his thread it seems Warg will be visiting around late March/early April
, so if he wants to join us I'm happy with aiming for a date that suits him.
As is always the case, it's great to meet up with the regular attendees, but it's also great to meet up with new faces, so don't feel shy about meeting up with us if you haven't been to one of the meets before (and I say that as someone constantly battling introversion). We always strive for a fun and welcoming atmosphere, and often bring along our own bits of Shining memorabilia or fan projects to show round.
