I'm sorry to everyone that was planning to attend this but due to a family commitment that has just come up today, I won't be around for the weekend any more. That isn't to say to not have a meetup... it's just that I'm not going to be around so won't be able to coordinate stuff any more. Unless someone else wants to pick up the torch and run with it, you should probably consider this meet up cancelled.
Ok. We're a month out from this so here's the plan. EGX closes at 7pm each day so let's say that the main meet up is on Sat 27th @ The Four Quarters Bar - from 8pm The Four Quarters is only 30 mins away from EGX's location by train and light rail so ought to be fairly accessible (especially if you're South of the river).The Loading bar is also a similar distance to EGX so could be a back up alternative if things don't work out with The Four Quarters. For those interested in multiple meet ups we could also have a secondary meet up on either Friday 26th or Sunday 28th @ Heart of Gaming - from 8pm (an overnight lock-in option is available at HoG so if you feel hardcore enough for that let me know ahead of time so that I can let them know)
More about HoG , as covered by Edge magazine here Reply in this thread to let me know if you plan to come to either/both so I can get a list together for the venues;
