Re: 10th Birthday Meetup - possible date change?

Hi all,

I've had quite a lot of PMs and queries about problems with the date of the meet up, many people can't make that date due to work and family commitments etc, and it's also become apparent that pretty much all hotels in Bristol are booked up for the original date, which is a major issue for people too.

So I'm proposing to move the date to one a few months away so that people can book time off work and get better hotel deals which will hopefully allow a lot more people to come, so I'm proposing the Great Derelict Places New Year and 10th Anniversary Meet in January. There's a couple of weekends possible and I'm including a poll for you to fill in to feedback (it should be at the top of this post), so please respond and I'll make arrangements accordingly.

If you've already booked for the 19th Sept and can't get any refunds etc please PM me and we'll see what we can do.

Sorry for the trouble, but I would love to see as many of you as possible. I really had no idea accomodation etc would be such a problem.

Thanks for your understanding,

Ben.

I may actually be up for it if it's in the winter. Things are gonna get busy this month and I'm running out of funds to travel. Might slot in quite well with other stuff in the area too.

If the the other stuff is having a nose somewhere, want some company?

There are only two fatal flaws in your plan, the first being that I don't drink alcohol, the second being that I don't have any secrets. Apart from that it's a brilliant plan! :D

Unless you behave on that naughty step you'll be lucky if you get a bottle of pop and a packet of salt n shake crisps.

I don't partake of sugery drinks or salty snacks, and the naughty step is my natural home, it does seem that the new date suits more of us than September did, should be fun and I look forward to it, on reflection I shall keep my suggestion of the use of a cattle prod to meself

This is great news...
I really did't want to miss out on this, but as mentioned I have a prior commitment, and there didn't seem to be any hotels for under £200.
I should be able to make January, and look forward to meeting you all there :)
