Gunn meet up - either 9th or 10th September

Many of you will remember Gunn – a GameOn LAN and forum regular until he was fortunate enough to get re-located to LA a few years back. A couple of our users even made it out to his wedding. He has also helped out with the E3 trips over the years, being a ‘local’ for the guys over there.

Well Gunn and his wife Alison will be visiting the UK in September and he has asked me to try and arrange a get together with any of the users who would like to catch up with him. We did a similar thing last time he was over, and a good time was had by all!!!

Gunn has requested a hotel type get together, somewhere central, so that it would be nice and easy to have a meal, a few drinks and a good old catch up chat. The 2 possible dates suggested are Friday 9th September or Saturday 10th September, whichever one suits everyone best. The suggested location is

http://www.novotel.com/gb/hotel-0507...ds/index.shtml

This is actually over the road from the hotel used for Gunn’s last get together, and also for Olly’s midlands leaving do. It is just off junction 25 of the M1, near Nottingham. It has a restaurant and bar on site. Rooms are priced at £42 without breakfast or £56 with.

Can anyone who is interested in attending please indicate which would be the best day.

Re: Gunn meet up - either 9th or 10th September

Dawson and I should be able to make it down for this, either dates are ok for us, but the Saturday is prefered as the journey down there is a long few hours travel and thus straight after work is not fun.

I'd like to come but I can't confirm just yet. If I can make it either day will be fine for me.

Re: Gunn meet up - either 9th or 10th September

Do we get to use the same bar as last time? I'm sure they loved us, given the length of the receipt at the end

@Sarah and Kris: Gunn never met me before I went to the last one, either (he'd been shipped off before even I joined GO)... it's still good to meet all these madmen and women, err I mean GO members

I would love to be able to come along, but my situation is more than a little complicated atm so I have no idea if I will be even remotely able to, nearer the time. Still, fingers crossed

Edit: Yes Hairy, there are photos.. best not to get them out :x

Re: Gunn meet up - either 9th or 10th September

Big thanks to Mrs R (and I guess Rasher!!) for helping in organizing this for the wife and I (I rarely get to use that phrase). As mentioned, we will be in the UK visiting family and friends and thought another knee's up with the GO crew should also be on the books.

Hence why Saturday was added as an option... be good to see you all if you can come...

Nope, don't mind tho i do remember you from the MB, TBH the more the merrier (as long as you buy me a drink that is j/k). BTW, anyone know who this Platinum fellow is?!?

Be great to see you old chap, been far too long. LMK if you can make it and if you can't, we may pop over for a spot of T.

^ What he said.


TBH guys, if you want to come then by all means. When I was around (many moon's ago) GO was never one of those 'exclusive members only' places (reminds me of my stag do!!), and I follow the same philosophy, the more the merrier.

Re: Gunn meet up - either 9th or 10th September

Well, I've only ever spoken to Gunn on Facebook.

But he seems remarkably well adjusted for a GO member. I reckon its the sun you know, get to the brain and cooks it.... Olly will become "normal" too while he's out there.
