Yes, you read it right!
Background info: me and Callum/Alkosh talking on FB about random shit, this and that, then all of a sudden the idea of a guild meet-up comes to mind [all credit goes to Callum, here] and I was like "holy shit, that's an idea and a half [a good one.]"
So here we are, and its progressed from a passing-idea into a full-blown "hey, let's do this shit!"
Where: Hitchin. Callum's house/town. [Use Google maps. Its 23 miles north of the London border, and 40 miles from London central.]
Who: that remains to be seen [TBA.] But so far This is what I/we know;
Richard/Lucreciae - yes, definitely, any day any week, either month.
Callum/Alkosh - yes, definitely, its planned either at the end of December or in January [either month.]
Zane/Obsolus and Hollie - yes, definitely, its planned for when they don't have college, either month.
Thomas/Euina - yes, definitely, its planned for when they don't have work, and its on a weekend, either month.
Karl/Suppression - yes, definitely, January.
Rifter/Bear - yes, maybe, January.
What: just a get-together. Callum has generously offered people the option of staying at his house instead of paying for a hotel [which can be very expensive, especially for those coming into the UK from Europe like Thomas and Karl.] Go out for a few drinks, a meal in the evening, perhaps other shit like paintballing or other wacky crap! Possibilities are endless [well not literally endless but more than the amount of fingers we have to count with.]
How long: in Callum's words: "1 day is nothing, you come there and go home before you know it. 2 days is the same. 3 days is solid." So we're aiming for 3 days. That means 3 sleeps in Callum's house therefore 3 possible times where you could get raped, killed, stabbed or severely peed-on in your sleep. ;)
Please post if you would like to come and which days in [, but worst case scenario; ] that you can come for. [or if something has changed, then I will edit this post.]
e.g.: "I can come for 3 days 1st-4th December, or 9th-12th December, or 5th-8th January. I'll stay in Callum's house [if he's okay with it] / I will find a nearby hotel if there is one nearby, otherwise I will stay with Callum [if he's okay with it.]"
Update - WHEN: This gotta be discussed. =]
Pretty much everyone who's said they're fairly sure/definitely coming have said they'd prefer January over December. I'll jot-down a few weekends/dates and I need you guys to either personally tell me or post here which weekends [Friday, Saturday and Sunday] are fine for you:
¬ 3rd 4th 5th - Thomas + Rifter go home Sunday night, Zane + Hollie can do.
¬ 10th 11th 13th - Thomas + Rifter go home Sunday night, Zane + Hollie can do.
¬ 17th 18th 19th - Thomas + Rifter go home Sunday night, Zane + Hollie can do.
¬ 14th 25th 26th - Thomas + Rifter go home Sunday night, Zane + Hollie can do.
Note that this means you'd arrive Friday in the morning or afternoon e.g. 8am-3pm and leave Monday morning [or afternoon.] Non-Brits who travel via plane might have to travel earlier/later than others, but I'm sure they can arrange their plane/boat/travel the best they can for this.
