    Hello!

    Following on from the successful adventure at SLA last year, which was graciously organised by Mr Jessop, I am volunteering to organise accommodation for this year's weekend in Edinburgh.

    The accommodation has been booked. We have two apartments located circa 5 minutes from Haymarket station. There are two parking spots available, one of which I am pinching for the Yorkshire contingent. This means that there is one left if anyone needs it.

    The accommodation we have booked is here: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Vacat...06697-Malt_Apartments-Edinburgh_Scotland.html



    Price is 112 each. Payable by the end of August please.

    Confirmed Parties
    • Seb - PAID
    • Carl T
    • Matt C (Shadowcat) - PAID
    • DiGiKerot (Paul T) - PAID
    • Perviest Dan (latro) - PAID
    • Cell
    • Martin - PAID
    • Scottish Rob
    • Elliot

    How to Pay

    Paypal is easiest. If you send me an email to seb@uk-anime.net, I will send you a request for payment. If you email me, I can also supply BACS details to allow a direct transfer.

    >Weekend 18th - 20th October 2017

    Thats not the weekend tho.

    I've not been to an SLA event - always a little bit far, and I've either had no money or worked. Seems a lot of effort and travel tbh. Opinions?

    This thread 18-20
    SLA Front Page 16-22
    SLA News Feed 15-22

    Either way I'm interested in coming up just depends on dates :3

    I'm going to imagine it should be the 20th-22nd - that's the Friday through Sunday in Edinburgh, which tends to be the lions share of content.

    Anyway, whilst I normally end up making my own arrangements for SLA, I'm also all for saving some money on Edinburgh accommodation (even if I end up booking a room elsewhere for just the Thursday night since I tend to hit those movies as well).

    I'll be in Edinburgh that weekend for sure, so count me in!

    (And yes, that should be October 20th-22nd, so I've corrected it accordingly!)

    Yeah. I failed. Guess what was blocked at work and I had to guess from a calendar :D. (And still got it wrong! Lol)

    The Nottingham contingent (including Brighton branch) will be there as normal. Though we're thinking of collectively pulling a Murtaugh ("I'm too old for this shit") and going for a nice comfy hotel with breakfast. On that note, there are three of us, so if anyone else is interested in sharing a twin room we are currently one short of the ideal number...

    Consider me out, too much to think about too far into the future. My finances are also a bit of a mess atm :p

    Thanks for organising it tho

    Actually, we are down to 7. So 143 each.

    Definitely happy with this one, and looking to book. Any objections?

    Yipes, I didnt know there was a thread ongoing, I assumed there would be an email chain. Is it too late for me to get in on this?

    That place looks fine from what I can see. Even the shower looks functional :p Settling up by August works for me too.

    If there's any issue with having too many people though, I don't mind taking the good doctor up on his offer of joining the Notts contingent. I'm fine either way tbh, but I've clearly lived in Yorkshire long enough to lean towards the cheaper option ;)

    @Elliot: no objections from me at all. I was getting worried that you wouldn't be there this year!

    Right... that makes 9...

    Glad I hadn't booked owt yet.

    In theory, this place is good for 10... but not sure what the remaining accommodations are. I will ask. If not, I can look elsewhere.

    Thread updated :)
