Right a new meet is being arranged.

The city: London UK
The date: 26th July
Venue : The Audley
41 Mount Street
Telephone: 0207 4991843
Time: 1pm till closing
Suggested Hotel: Travel Inn Euston
Price per room per night: £74.95 (just under £37.50 per person with 2 sharing)
Useful links: Tube planner http://www.thetube.com/cgi-bin/tpquery3.exe?
Journey planner http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/user/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2?language=en
Travel Inns www.travelinn.co.uk
Website with other links: http://www.wizardgroup.net/uo/

This is a great venue as not only do we get our own bar and entrance but under 18s are welcome if "supervised" meaning no messing around and we should be fine! Best of all its free if we drink £300 worth (a hard job but someone has to do it!)




This isnt only open to UO players but to all that play any MMORPG, so all of you that have moved on to Daoc, E&B etc please pass the news along ( though I think that the UO contingent should be the largest!! *winks*)

Well its organised by people from the guildhall, the last one (nottingham) alot was done by Lady Camylobacter (sorry about the spelling!). Carrot is doing alot this time i think (which as he is getting married soon is a big deal!!).

I am trying to help out and do my bit by keeping this thread as up to date as possible!!

I might be able to attend although it will depend upon the venue to be honest. If the venue has a bar...I'm there!

If I get drunk (highly likely) then you may get to see my scar...*grins*

seriously though, I have been playing this game for bloody years and have yet to attend any function or get together associated with it. Thats kinda criminal really.

It would be nice to see who's who...I will get myself a big "Halo 14" T-shirt printed up and a matching gum shield.

As far as i understand it having a bar is a pre-requisite!!

Both the of the meets i have attended (London last year and Nottingham in November) were held in pubs so i think that we can safely say that there will be alcohol for those that want it.

*grins*

Not sure i want to see your scar though Halo.....*tries not peek*

Yes the meet will be held in a pub or bar of some sort...

We are endeavouring to make sure that those under 18 will be able to gain access to the meeting area as well.

A web site will be going up soon, and that will contain all relevent details of how to get there and where to stay.

It will have links to the relevent public transport services, and hotels.

And we will make our own recomendations on accomodation based on price and location. We may be able to book a group discount, but remember, sharing a room halves the cost.

While we are ownly officially allowed 2 adults to a room, at the last london meet, a few extras crashed over, and as there were quite a few (about 30 at least) who travelled back in a group together, there was no real way for them to check (plus we all looked weird to them /php-bin/shared/images/icons/laugh.gif)

As mentioned, I am getting married on the 21st of June, Kragen Ironfist will be my best man as he is (for those that don't know) my real life twin brother. So yes, organising this, along with my wedding and a very hectic work schedule is difficult. But I can assure you, with the team we have working on it, things will happen.

Whats a "Vasectomy"? Im not very good at english medical terms /php-bin/shared/images/icons/frown.gif

Guest

Guest
It's an operation to ensure that you don't have any more kiddies. They either sever or clip the tubes going from your testicles to your tackle.

Ref: Hopefull's vasectomy scar...I know, I'm a bit late on this one but I aint read this thread in a few days.

Anyhoo, sorry to burst your bubble matey but...

1) I have already had a vasectomy (The process where the vas differens are cut and clamped to prevent "issue") so I can also show my "scar"...

2) The procedure is classed as "keyhole surgery" and as such leaves little to no scar tissue of notable size/visibility.

Aaaah, I remember it well! A nice German doctor and his luvverly female assistant. It was a warm summery afternoon and the birds were twittering in the trees, the screams of pain, the anguish, the sounds of German cursing as I almost ripped a radiator from his surgery wall. Lashings of cold sweat as the internal anaesthetic (sp?) failed miserably leaving yours truly with almost full sensation as he sliced through my supernoodles! Aye, that radiator had it coming!

Then two weeks of absolute hell as my undercarriage filled with blood and got infected. Aye, its a nice wee op to have matey. The most common description I have heard about it is "its like the sensation of being hoofed in the gonads by a horse...for two weeks" although I must admit that I disagree.

Its like having your pods slammed in the fridge door...for two weeks!

But hey, listen to me gabbing away about an OT subject! Cant wait to meet all you fellow boardies and have a jar or two with you. Who knows, we might not all be 12 year old boys wearing gangsta rap t-shirts afterall...*cringes*

Sounds good!
I'm only down the road (Basildon, Essex).

BTW - theres a nice pub in Pimlico - bout 5 mins walk from the Tube that another group I frequent (FlashKit) have been know to use from time to time!
Not the cheapest beert in the world, but they do a damn fine pint of Fullers.
Run by Aussies, and there was this right fit lass behind the bar /php-bin/shared/images/icons/laugh.gif

We'll have to see whether it's possible to get the time off etc. since we're in the South-East of the Netherlands which isn't exactly next door.

On the other hand, The two countries are right next to each other, with only a drop of water in between.
