Title: August Second Sphere UK Meetup 2014
Post by: Narric on April 19, 2014, 06:50:00 pm
Starting a new thread so we can sort out the dates for a proper annual Meetup here in the UK.

To be up front, I am assuming August is the best month, due to Uni/college students being on summer holiday, and so would be able to attend. It may not give us a whole load of time, but for thoes of us who are not in Education, and are instead on Full-time work, its plenty to ensue we can get time off :P

I know Mabbz and Chris had a two person meetup recently, so hopefully we can at least get the body count up a few? :P

Funny, I coulda sworn that August was in Summer last I checked... :P

That aside, any time more towards the start of August (cause, ya know, Uni) would work well for me. Unfortunately, much as I wanted to, I couldn't attend the most recent meet on account of my bloody back being a total pain in the arse back. What can I say, Ankylosing Spondylitis is a bitch. However, all being well I should definitely be able to attend the next one.

I'm game for early August...
Would depend on whether I manage to get a job for summer and whether or not I have money.
Put me down as a provisional yes.

I don't think I can do the first weekend in August (I need to check when my holiday is), but I should be able to do any of the others.

I shall have to see what's available in terms of shift swaps in work etc so I can't confirm until July. Working 2 in 3 Saturdays sucks. :(

I take my ealier comment back. I get back off my holiday on the last day of July, so I should be good for any of the dates (provided we meet in Nottingham; anywhere else could be problematic)

I'm game for coming if we can get some RT or BFG to happen. ;)

I have the rules for BFG lying around somewhere, but I never played (except a couple of games against myself) or had any models. If you have spare models I could give you a game.

Just had an idea. For those of us who bring 40k Minis.

A small tourny. 500-750pts each, and you play against each other person, playing multi-sided games depending on how many people come. Once everybody has played everybody else, add the number of victory points to your total of wins. the person with the highest total wins. Not quiet sure what the prize could be though :P

Hows that for an idea?

Sounds good to me. On a related note, we could run the Scenario contest (or any other house rule contest) shortly before this so that we can playtest them and post up reports before the voting starts.

Bring them to the meetup

I should have a workable Space Marine force for that! Provided I get be there for it that is!

Hmm, I might actually be able to make this depending on exactly when it is (Away for some of August, so will have to check). And I might have a usable army by then as well.

Post by: Mabbz on May 15, 2014, 06:47:43 pm
The current date seems to be the 2nd, although there's a good chance it'll get changed if people can't make it then.

If more people chose their prefference in the poll above, we'd have a more solid idea of when would be the most preferable time to do it.

I'll probably bring my Chaos force, which'll potentially be all Fallen Dark Angels :)

We'll have to make sure someone has Yaketty Sax on their iPod then, in case someone turns up with regular Dark Angels ;D

I've gone for the third week, I've got a wedding every weekend in July, so provided I'm working, I'll need some time to save up a bit of moolah for fuel and FW goodies...
Title: Re: August Second Sphere UK Meetup 2014
Post by: Narric on May 18, 2014, 08:37:17 pm
Now that you've said that I've realized I've been a bit tool-ish picking the first week, as I have my own Wedding to attend mid-July :P

[Combination]
Unless anybody has objections, I'm gonna go over to Facebook and set this as an event.

Looking at the poll, it'll be the Friday 22nd to the Sunday 24th. Hopefully this'll give plenty of time for travel and lodging bookings. Maybe we can group together at the hotel we did the last time. "Castle View Hotel" or something?

As I've said on the Facebook Event, chances are very slim I'll be able to attend. I get paid on the Friday, but there is little chance I'd be able to attend :P

Hopefully this will remind people that this is supposed to be happening :P
Title: Re: August Second Sphere UK Meetup 2014
Post by: Mabbz on July 28, 2014, 10:14:14 pm
I'm still in, provided others show up. Who is (or even might be) coming?
Title: Re: August Second Sphere UK Meetup 2014
Post by: Narric on July 28, 2014, 10:23:05 pm
Going by just the FB Event Page, Commissar Will said he was coming, and Chris might do. With obvious exception to those overseas, many haven't said either way.
Title: Re: August Second Sphere UK Meetup 2014
Post by: Mabbz on August 16, 2014, 11:18:01 pm
*Bump*

Just figured I should remind people that the meetup is this coming weekend. So far only myself, Commissar Will and possibly Chris are coming, so if you can make it but haven't said so, please let us know. Will and Chris, if you could confirm that you can still come, that would be helpful. I don't want to show up and find that everyone's forgotten.
