GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

First off apologies if I am stepping on anyones toes here, if I am feel free to give me a slap.

So first off, who is interested?

Second, ideas on where to hold it?

Third when is everyone free?

Again Rasher if you have already got something sorted that's awesome

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

1. Me

2. Probably need a function room or similar if the idea is to hold some tourneys/gaming of some description

3. To give people time to prep/keep it suitably away from being too close to Christmas, I'd say back end of Nov?

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

Cool, Midlands I think would be best? been having a chat with Dawson about it and Hairy I think has some ideas.

Current thinking is a room with internets if possible though we could bodge this perhaps using phones ect, couple of Xboxes and beer, then use a local hotel after.

Not quite, the thought is to get a room for the day, couple of Xboxes and beer really, a days LAN would take a lot more planning, this is just a fairly simple meet up to have a bit of a laugh with some tourneys drink some beer and just meet up with LAN mates really.

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

Didn't know if for the sake of ease, just meet up for the afternoon / evening as per Olly's / Gunn's leaving do's.

Novotel Nottingham

Leicester Premier Inn

Both have meeting rooms and I can say that both were pretty ideal for what we wanted.

If we can get enough people that would be ideal getting a meeting room, Xbox and TV if they let us and there will be a bar, then at the end just take the xbox up to a room and we are sorted.

Any recommendations Hairy? we can phone around a few I suppose?

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

If we can sort a date fairly quick we can get a FB page up or something for it.

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

No recommendations as such, both those venues were ok for what we wanted, don't know how much the meeting rooms will be for the day - perhaps see if we can get a deal on X no. of rooms and a meeting room?

Aye not a bad idea, can everyone pass the link to this thread on to people you think will go so we can get a idea of numbers?

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

Ooooh, sounds a cracking idea.

Would need about 2 weeks notice of a date so I can make sure I book enough recovery time.

Also, as close after payday as possible, I will then be able to buy new pants and jeans after the ones I arrive in inevitably get ruined...

29th/30th November looks good.

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

I was planning on doing a Walking Dead mid-season finale party on the 30th of November, so maybe we could incorporate this somehow. I know not everyone is a fan of the show but maybe for those of us that are

Potential. Would try my best to make it but depends on whether I can get someone to look after Jacob.

Re: GG Tourney day / Meetup 2014

So 29th Nov / 6th Dec as potential dates? everyone should have been paid by then and they seem to fit in with time people say they have free?

Rash these dates good for you and the family?
