Or 'MIST', for short.

DIGRESSION ALERT: The alternative title was 'Big Ass Summer Meetup', but I didn't like the sound of 'BASM'.

Balla and I have been chatting about future plans for the forum and that, and I'd really like to get a meetup organised of all of us all. The full-on mad plan would be to have a meetup in England, and one in Scotland at the same time. So, plenty of questions.

Who's up for it? When would be best? And where?

EDIT ONE: Looks like we're heading for a night on the Toon (or Splatoon?). Declare your availability for June and July 2016 by January 31st here: http://doodle.com/poll/f3uwiq2inpkqdvte

I'm definitely up for it. I'd obviously be up for a Scottish meetup, but if there's not enough interest up here then I could easily make it down south with enough notice. I actually have a week off booked in September already, but could always take a few more days off if need be. Smile

Any time before Q4, more or less, should be good for me! Thumbs Up! I'd also be happy to come up to Scotland, given enough warning.

One in Scotland would be no bother for me. I'm living in the North East but the central belt is usually quite straightforward to get to. I think Glasgow could be a good shout, and we all make a weekend of it. I'd assume Jay and Jaster would be kicking about - maybe a meetup could take in an ICW event?

In England, I don't think I'd be up for going much further than Newcastle, so I'd probably miss out on that.

Me & Drunka have said the few times when we've done stuff we need to do some meet ups, wrestling came to mind again but not all would want to do that, we asked about Taylor Davis, the only other thing we thought of was gaming (other nerd events could also work) events be it Rezzed, EGX, Play Expo for instance.

I've said about a South-West meet-up before in Weston due to arcade but not much interest in that but hey I'll meet gJones soon with that retro dreamcast event in bristol.

I'm happy to go most places and willing to drive myself and Drunka, Muss, gJones, EofGizmo, I think someone else is fairly close as well for something.

Doesn't need to be tied to an event or anything: I'd be up just for meeting all of you in a pub garden for a day.
Would be great to meet the Scottish continent as well, but with enough notice I'm up for just about anything.

We're just a country up here Drunka. Razz

Yeah, I think if it was centered around an event, it'd be best to have it as something gaming related. Wrasslin' can be kept separate from this as that'd exclude a fair whack of the forum. Definitely up for just having some drinks and playing some games with you bunch. I've spoken to you all for a good few years now on the internet and some for even longer (think I joined the NGamer forum in '07 and I know for a fact Balla was there at the time) - I'm sure it won't be too horrible to meet you all IRL.

If I can overcome my social anxiety issues and have enough prior warning to get time off work i'd be interested in attending a meetup. Scotland based would be easiest but depending on where exactly and when a trip down south may not be out of the question.

Like most have said as long as we are told of a meetup well in advance I'd be well up for this, much like TCK though I doubt I could go further than Newcastle.

---

It'd also be nice if we could all somehow chip in to get everyone to the same event rather than having separate meet ups.

Jas, you are totally right that it would be brilliant to get all of us all to one spot, and that would be absolutely ideal. We could aim for that, if people wanted - totally open to suggestions. Grin

Only problem with sticking to a single meet-up is that we've got a significant group of forumites in Scotland, some of whom aren't willing to travel down south. If we have the same thing reversed, it's either two meet-ups, or... meet in Newcastle. Afraid

It would take me about six hours to get to Newcastle from where I live, and I think that it's about 250 miles away. I'd feel that I'm meeting folk in the middle if I went there, in the same way that folk from the likes of London probably would too. Newcastle is a good night on the tiles too.

A Scotland meetup, an England meetup and potentially a joint meetup (near enough to the border) later in 2016 might be the way to go.

I'd be up for Newcastle if that's what it would take. As long as we agree on dates etc soon, the cost of travel can be arranged for.

It's a 343 (Guilty Spark) mile trip for me to Newcastle, the drive to Sheffield (Which is halfway between Glasgow & Taunton 'ish) wasn't bad but that's another 100 miles on top and nearly 6hrs drive if traffic is good.

Well, when I said chip in I meant to maybe cover everyone's travel costs even if it takes hiring some sort of bus - just thinking it'd be easier if everything was organised rather than going "here's the time/place, hope to see you there" if that makes sense.

Certainly but where would the bus start also after a certain size we may need depending on numbers, we wouldn't able to drive ourself's unless someone has a licence I don't know about.

If I can't make the event I can't make it, that simple but like do something.

Maybe we all go somewhere that's roughly the same distance for us all to travel to....

GNamer E3 Meet up and/or Vegas trip. Thumbs Up!

For where the bus would start it'd all depend on where the meet up was, wouldn't it? Grab the people who are furthest away first then work your way through the people who are closest to the meet up point.

As for the "If I can't make it..." point that is totally understandable but having the meet up properly organised in this way there should be less chance of that happening.

I'd be happy to head anywhere really provided I had enough notice. Obviously the further south we go the more expensive it'll be for me, but I've not had a trip away in ages and I've also wanted to meet up with you fine folks for a while now, so I'd be prepared to splash out a bit for this. Thumbs Up!

A thought: if we do go somewhere like Newcastle - and I'd presume we'd all be staying the night - someone could bring up a Wii U with them and we could all pile into a hotel room at some point for some Smash and Mario Kart.

I was thinking I could make a long weekend out of going to Scotland, actually. Take Monday off, spend some time with yous, spend some time being a tourist.

Once we're into Newcastles and Scotlands I'd probably be thinking a train or a plane.

Exeter to Newcastle and back is about 80 per person in mid June.

I could book that as soon as we have a date and then I'm not worrying about it, y'know?

Yep, and actually having a proper look Easyjet from Bristol is cheaper. For me, you and Muss it would be 145 (48 each) that's based on leaving Bristol Saturday morning and leaving Newcastle on Monday morning for instance in June.

Wow! I'm not sure Muss'd be up for it but I'd do a flight because planes are fun.
