Exilimeet in Cambridge?
« on: February 24, 2015, 01:00:01 PM »
Jubal and I talked about this a few days ago. We think there are enough Exilian members in and around Cambridge (the English one) that it would be worth trying to organise a meet-up. This would probably be a traditional gathering in a pub, either in the evening or at a weekend. We're thinking of having it in mid to late March, in the hope that Cambridge people will still be around, and at least some of the Norfolk people will have returned from whatever distant parts of the world they go to during term time. Anyone else who can make it will of course be welcome.

Please note: we're aware that only a small minority of Exilian members are likely to be able to attend this; we'd like it to be more, but geography is against us. Also, this is not a replacement for any other larger event we might hold later in the year (e.g. Exilicon 2).

If you'd like to come along, please say so, along with some indication of when might or might not be good for you.

Won't be able to make this one; wasn't planning on making another UK run until late summer/early fall. :/

 I might be able to make this, though a day-time thing would be better than an evening one (given that I'm coming from Essex).

I will definitely be there :)

FK, are some days of the week usually better for you than others?

I think we'll do this before the end of march - I may go home for a bit around then too, I'll be in Cambridge most of the official holiday though.

My schedule is usually very fluid although I'm not good at being awake at a reasonable hour at the moment. I've been working the night shift as of late and my efforts to change that have met with rebellion on the part of my body.

Would that be down the road from Narch? :P

Meanwhile, I can do Saturdays 14th and 28th March, and Sunday 29th March. I can also weekday evenings, but not daytime.

I'm now a Norfolk person... Though March is retreat season for the lab so I'll have to look into dates once they're all sorted!

Are we still going to do a meet later in the year as well as the con? My unit and I were hoping for the camping thing.

Yes, absolutely. This is just intended to be a more local gathering.

Logistically and dates are no problem for me but I have no money. If I can scrape some together by whenever it is I can be there.
