Agreed. We had a few beers at the Fox last year with a couple of Frothers, but with the FU-UK community sort of dying down and there being considerable overlap, maybe these two could be combined? For me (and I assume Nate with a bit more travelling :D ) this is pretty much one of the two evenings (the other one being the Salute Saturday) in a year that I get to meet and spend time with people from RP & Frothers, so I'd hate to choose between the two.

We pretty much camped in the travelodge restaurant/bar last year being passively indignant at the prodos and mildly star struck with gav thorpe. Not the sexiest of venues but it serves and everyone wants an early bed for the big day anyway. Iirc the salute staff kick you out at 5 or 6 on friday so lots of time to kill.

So it is the traditional Fox pub gathering on Saturday evening once we've been thrown out of Salute?

I'm very unlikely to make a Friday gathering, but what is the itinerary just in case?

Has everyone remembered to buy a ticket? £12 in advance, £20 on the door. Worth doing.

Where are the Platypussies going to be inside Salute? I assume that your tables are close together and that I should head there to give McFonz my £8 for the T-shirt. Any chance that any of the dice will be available for sale?

I imagine we'll be in the bar of the travelodge rather than the fox, but it's not exactly planned. Probably somebody will post here with an update when we're there.

Tables are right in front of the HF stand which basically makes them base camp. We can probably find some dice but i'm not sure bf made spares exactly. They might have to come from the marketing pool which means supply and choice will be somewhat limited.

Travelodge on the Friday. Some folk do head to the fox after Salute. Depends upon getting tables back to the cars at the hotel etc but I dare say some folk will head there. I will indeed have the t-shirts with me for collection and payment.

I'll most likely be at the Fox after Salute. Would be nice to see you folks on Friday, so might pop over to Travelodge too.

There might be a spare one or two if you know which palms to grease. :dodgy:

Event and train tickets booked - looks like I will be making it to my first ever Salute.

I'm wondering if I can bring a condensed version of Carnage City Chronicles along to play at Platy-Con.

Heads up all Salute visitors, Custom House for Excel DLR station is not in operation, so Prince Regent DLR is the place to go.

Not a big haul on account of being busy, but notably I'm forever done with prodos at last.

No pithy notes from me,

I was less busy than WW, so consequently bought way more, but there a lot of freebies in the pile.

great fun on the day, and good to meet so many of you weirdos in person.
