2) Which age group will you be in on the day of the event
Please post in the thread too if you can so we can all get to know you
Anyway, heres some more info on the meetup!
Some of us UK-ites have already been discussing it in the UK FANS thread and it seems like a possibility. But to really get things off the ground I figured lets have a thread dedicated to a specific group meeting.
Old details in spoiler. Now I have newer BETTER details.
FRIDAY 13TH APRIL 2012
We will all meet in Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens sometime between 12 and 3. Once we're all there
we'll go for a picnic with stuff people are planning on bringing, featureing tab, faygo, batterwitch snackx,
and sandwiches and stuff!
Then, in the late afternoon, we're hiring out the Kyoto Videogames lounge where we can have an MSPA themed
party with themed cocktails and stuff XD The lounge will give us unlimited use of their
xboxes, ps3s and PCs. We'll have some non-video games going down too
Also our resident MSPA DJ will be pumping out your favourite HomeStuck tunes along with some other classics.
In the evening we'll retire to the Hatter's hostel where we'll all chill in their
common room and catch up on the potential 4/13 MSPA update if we haven't done already at Kyoto.
Then we'll split off into dorm rooms to get a good nights sleep ready for...
SATURDAY 14TH APRIL
Where we will check out by 10am and take advantage of the Hostel's free breakfast.
Once we're all fed we'll take manchester by storm for a bit and go mooch around afflecks palace which is a wonderous place.
In the afternoon we'll then head towards the trafford centre. Once there we will
split into two groups (cos there is LOADS of us ) one group will go to play LASERQUEST
while the other will hang out in the Namco games arcade where we could do bowling or
dodgems if we wanted. Then groups will swap so everyone can do some laserquest!
After that we'll probably go for PICNIC ROUND 2 or just chill in a
local park of which there are many if its sunny (fingers crossed) I'll teach you all how to
juggle or something fun, we'll bring frisbees, it will be awesome.
RE cost of the trip, aside from travel expenses, its looking to
come out at around about £40 per person for the whole shebang. I know thats quite a
lot BUT consider that gets you accomodation, a laserquest game, and a private MSPA-themed party,
its not that bad. Also, we'll be somewhat flexible about what you want to go in for.
Say you just want to do laserquest? You can pay just for laserquest. Same for other things.
Also, I'd like to introduce you to people who will be helping me get this off the ground. My elite band of MODERGANISERS.
These guys will be helping me set things up and also help keep you cats and kittens under control on the day
Thats simple, made-up-person! Just respond in this thread and I'll add you to the guest list at the bottom of this post! If you're thread shy and/or just lurking about, thats cool, you can send me a PM. If you PM me and don't want to appear in the guestlist for whatever reason that can be arranged. This doesn't mean you have to be on the guest list to attend! Or come talk to me on pesterChum. I'm chronoSamurai there. You can usually find me in #Britstuck.What do I do to get involed, dear sweet ChronoSamurai?
Also, not a member of the forum/not on pesterchum? Just drop me an email at chronosamurai (at) hotmail.co.uk and I can get you on the list another way
Most importantly don't forget to include an email or PM to me stating which days you are planning on coming and what age group you fall into.
If you want to chat about meet-ups or anything at all, ArmedRaptor started the #Britstuck Pesterchum Memo Board thingy. Come say hi!
NOTE: #Britstuck may or may not always be open depending on if there are enough of us online or not. If that is the case don't fret! It'll pop back into existence sooner or later.
And now we're on:
You might have to add one of us to get on the list there though Try to add me if you're going to add just one of us, this way I can keep track of you all.
I will PM everybody with updates/reminders as and when they are appropriate.
Here is some misc comments that are not essential but may help.
Note, this guest list was getting TOO BIG. I have spoiler'd it and also split it into two groups which are as follows:
People who are fairly certain they can come to the meetup.
People who are not sure if they can make it yet but we really hope they do!
My pesterchum is chronoSamurai if you want to ask me anything on there.
