UK S&T - 23rd October thing

I know we have a few UK GWJers kicking around, and I want to meet some of you because hey, any excuse for a pint, right?

I'm in Cambridge, and while I'm happy to host in my one-bedroom flat (or a pub (or three)), London is better connected and probably easier for the rest of the country to get to.

So, is anyone interested, and if so, when? Pick a weekend and I'll be there.

edit:\ Resurrected and hijacked for 23/10 shenanigans.

Incidentally, I'm coming over to London May 1st to 4th and would be happy to have another GWJ pub crawl. The one two years ago was amazing. I necroed my thread, but we can use this as well. May 1st is Saturday, so I'd choose that weekend. I'll be staying somewhere in Kensington, but am willing to go anywhere reasonably central.

Aww man, you've stolen my S&T.

Sounds great. I'll be there, if someone reminds me (and work isn't being a bitch).

I think its a great idea, Floomi. I've spent more than my fair share of time polishing the bars in Cambridge with my elbows, but London is easier for me at the moment with work and the rest.

We're in Cambridge on Saturday for a wedding at Pembroke, but its going to be a hectic day. I'll carry on my thoughts over in WT's thread, but I think its a great idea.

ARISE, THREAD.

If you are in the UK and interested in doing a Thing on the 23rd October, speak now.

I can host in Cambridge or we can go to London if that's easier for people to get to. Or we can go somewhere else.

threaded. REPRESENT UK GOODJERS! I DEMAND EUROPEY SATISFACTION!

Hey guys I know I'm a newbie but I would love to get involved.

I am in London. I can't host but I can travel.

Exciting!

Been meaning to join a S&T for years, so it's about time. Can't host but can travel pretty much anywhere.

I'm in. Can't host anything as I live in a shoebox in London, although I'm happy to help scout possible venues.

I can't make those dates as my son is due to arrive around that time, and I can't be that far from home. Have fun, this that go.

I am happy to host sometime next year, but I live oop north.

If people want to meet up in London perhaps we could hit up Namco Station, which is at Westminster. It's got a drinky area, a bunch of arcade machines, and bumper cars.

Ah, I posted in the main 23rd October thread. I'm available for stuff that day, but can't host. I'm up for any old London thing. Can we bring board games into Namco station? Maq owes me a game of Junta.

I genuinely don't know! I'll mail them and see what they say.

Namco Station sounds good. Will have to set aside some money when I get paid tomorrow in order to afford some arcade machining!

Namco Stations a good idea. We can book out an area.

I'm further oop north than Spider so there's no way I can go but have a good one.

OK, so is this thing happening then? I want to book a train ticket in good time. What kinds of times are we looking at?

I've contacted Namco Station to see if they've got an area available and what the charge would be.

Well, I was certainly planning on going! I guess around 2 or 3 would be a reasonable start?

I still don't think we'll have enough people to make booking ahead a necessity, mind you.

The private areas still need to be booked though.

My point is that I don't think we need one. There's plenty of seats and tables and stuff at the bar.

OK, it's less than 2 weeks away now, so it's "get it sorted" time.

1) So we're going to go to Namco Station on 23rd October.
2) We're meeting 2-3pm.

3) who's coming? The interested parties so far are:

Floomi
Maq
Me
ApplePieChamploo
ptft

Anyone else? Haakon? DanB?

4) What are we doing? There are games and stuff at Namco Station, or we could bring some stuff ourselves, e.g. board games.

Bring a boardgame sounds good.

Gah, I am in the UK and very keen to meet other GWJers but 23rd Oct isn't good for me, keep me informed for future meetups!

I find your lack of commitment to GWJ disturbing...

+1 to a boardgame. I've only ever played Payday, Monopoly etc. so would be a brand new experience. Long as you gentlemen don't mind teaching me...!

OK, I'm going to book my train tickets. I'm now locked in.

I was booked in to an all-weekend Twin Peaks marathon but am now deeply glad to be getting out of it.

Anyone got a spare crystal?

I do have a slaphead and a banjo though.

So, its been a busy week after two weeks off for vacation, so I haven't been paying much attention.

Looks like you guys are set for a good turnout, but I don't think I can make it unfortunately. I've got a previous commitment for a 'joint 100th' birthday party for some friends' parents, but you guys have a good time without me!

I might now be free Saturday daytime but not the evening, is Namco still planned for 2pm?
