Right guys, there's been some discussion with people about interest in another UK meet....

basically the starting point is always the hard part:

1) WHEN! working around things like SkinD, National Holidays, and the like..... October seems like a front runner, but please jump in with your input.

2) WHERE? Manchester again has been some folks suggestion....i for one don't mind that at all, but again suggestions would be nice(baring in mind things like Ease of people getting there!)

3) WORK! may or may not be available at the meet, all depending on location and 'pros' attending really....but again we will work to that if people are interested.

Other than that, no major happenings would be involved. social gathering is the prime objective, and keeping the cost down is always good. If this seems like something people are up for, i Will be happy to take on the organising element and stressing myself out....but any help will be appreciated, and Poor Laura suffered last time :P

Ok.....and.....GO!!!

Yes I'd be up for this one. Was gutted I missed the last one. I'd prefer Manchester for selfish reasons cause it's close to me. October would be good cause the summer is festival and holiday season and I imagine a lot of folks are off jet setting. I'm not bothered about getting any work but again that's just me.

I'd love to be in, anytime!!
I'm holding back on organizational things, wishes and stuff like that, because I really can't tell in what situation I'll be by then. So I'll just jump in if it's possible for me, no matter what/where/when/why ;)

But yeah, to add my thoughts about it: UK meet?? FUCK YEAH!
Count me in Andy, and let's hope I can make it.

anytime after August would be swell ^_^ all holidays are booked and closed untill then at work. Also, should be able to scrape some cash together by then too. Sonisphere is taking up all my cash till July too.
Manchester would be ok for me and welsh. same hostel too or what?

I am up for this. I love meets.

I am organising the Spain meet in September (please come! £50 for a week's accomodation in a villa with a pool) but I will try to do what I can to help organise this meet too.

WhenDue to SkinD and the Spain meetup (come to Spain) I can not do earlier than 4th October. Before that I just will not have the money. After that is fine but I just can not do earlier.

WhereI am fine with Manchester but I will be going by train. Manchester is a bitch of a city to drive around and the constant alterations and roadworks make a sat-nav more of a liability than a boon.
If we had the meet in Leeds or York I would be happy to do all the driving again. I know the roads and I know where I can park for under £25 a day (which is what I was paying in Manchester) I will happily drive everyone around Leeds or York and will pick people up from within a 100 mile radius of either of these places, but if we are going to have the meet in a city I do not regularly drive around I will not be driving.

Work I like work. Stab me people! Lol.

If anyone wants to look around an attraction I will research what ones we could possibly see once a location is confirmed. If there is a charge for an attraction we want to see then I will try to blag a group-rate discount or coupons

Ok well so far its looking like mid-late October then? more input on location would be good....whether Manchester, or as Keiran said, Leeds or similar?

i think the main concern with location should be what is easiest for 'most' people to get to really :D

so long as Scott doesn't mind driving us and we can find somewhere cheap to park or we can get the train from Glasgow easy then I don't mind where it is.

I'd definatly be up for going! If I manage to get myself employed during my break from college that is...

Since I'm a good 50-60 miles out of Kierans picking up policy, I'd have to vote for Manchester, it'd cost me almost £80 to go to either York or Leeds by train, If I don't manage to get any decent work, I'll not be able to afford that!

you can get a train straight to manchester from glasgow central :) i'll be getting the train from there as well.

it doesn't really make a difference to me whether it's in manchester/leeds/york or the like, i'll have to travel a wee bit regardless :)

Ohhh I love the idea of another meet ! I'd be so thrilled to see all of your friendly faces again, and to meet more new ones.. Although I'm not really in a good place to do any planning at the moment. So yeah, can't say anything for sure just yet, but once life is kinda sorted I'll do my best to make it there whatever city/date/place and all <3 (although after the 4th, cause agreed : we need Keiran !!)

I'm there for sure! im pretty tied up over May, June and July with conventions but any time after that would be cool (October i have one convention but that can be worked around)
I'd be more than happy to work, in fact it would be my pleasure Skull

I noticed how amazing the Manchester Museum looked when I drove past it last night (I was at a concert). It is huge. If we go to Manchester we should totally see it
If we go to Leeds the museum there has a mummy and in York there is a Viking museum.

Most people ive spoke to individually seem to think Manchester is the best option so far, and late october seems to be a smiley time too!

if we do it at manc, people are welcome to travel to my studio for work and such. :)

just to keep this active.....

Are we all cool with Late October in Manchester again then?

given that its 4 months away, i will probably give it another month or so before i get head counts and stuff.... but if its all in agreement at that point, i will travel over to the Hostel from last time and try negotiate a good rate then(i will speak to miss laura, see what last times was).

p.s I'm Excited!

woot, the Etap where me and Scott stayed last time is fairly cheap to but a short tram ride out of the town center. One double bed with a single bed over it. Downside (or up depending who you share with) is the shower cubicle has a glass door.

Holidays are fairly heavy booked round then in work but I have time booked off in December that people might want to trade.

Who would be interested in receiving work from me if I were to make an appearance this year??

yup, still can't really confirm, as I'm not too sure what's happening in my studies until then. But I think it should be possible somehow. We'll see. I think October's a good time though.

I should be able to attend dependant on money - but I should have enough.
Also, yes - I'd be up for getting some work, depends on money again though.

Scott and myself will do our best to be there, might only make the Saturday till midway through the Sunday but will try to get the Friday (and hopefully Monday) off work.

edit to add : Also that weekend works out better for me as Manchester Roller Girls are coming up to Glasgow on the 30th and I was going to miss my team play to come to the meet, now I won't have to :)

While I truly hope it's an eventful meet up and all enjoy themselves immensely, I am trying to get a real feel of who would be interested in getting work from me, if I decided to come. Those who are coming and are interested try and let me know asap. Wanting to buy my ticket at the end of this month is the demand is high enough. Thanx

Friday isn't looking good for me and wouldn't be able to take a sicky - will be attempting to bribe holiday swaps a week on Monday when I'm back in the office but one of the likely swappers is off till the following Monday (my supervisor was off this week so couldn't do anything about it this week). Seriously bummed about it but with time off available in December I might get lucky

Is it likely to be the same hostel as last time? With Scott being an anti-social bastard we'll be booking a private room either there or try to get somewhere we know how to get places from (possibly the Etap as the tram was dead handy). As it stands we will be there for the Saturday and leaving mid afternoon on the Sunday as we won't get down till very late Friday night. Fingers crossed we get the holiday swaps, if not at least we get a day with you all :)

Well the hostel from last time is currently Front runner..... but we are gonna look into 'apartments', that bed 10, but have seperate kitchen and lounge areas.

if we can sort them for a similar price to the hostel, i think they would be awesome, as it frees up more Banter space, and allows people to go to bed while others are still up.

We are disagreeing about whether Scott is driving us down and trying to find somewhere outside Manc to park for free and bus/training in from there or getting the train down. We should be able to give 2 folk a lift down from the Glasgow area if he wins. I think the train would be easier and prob cheaper than fuel and parking. Boozing for him isn't an issue, parking can be a pain in the arse.
