    Hi guys.

    In case you don't know, some of us get together once a year in the Peak District for a long weekend to watch anime, play games, generally hang out and go for at least one walk so we can say we've done our exercise for the year. Anybody is welcome to join us.

    Dan is taking a break from organising UK-AStock this year so some of the rest of us have volunteered to give it a go.

    We're planning on renting last year's 1st choice venue (we couldn't get it last year for reasons on their end), Portland House for 2017 for the usual Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (check out on Monday).

    It's a bit more expensive than last year's venue, but it benefits from being very near Matlock Bath train station and amenities, as well as being a short walk into Matlock proper.

    I've (hopefully) attached a poll to this thread with available dates in February and March that Portland is currently available at what we reckon is a reasonable price. Please use the poll to let us know which of the dates you prefer.

    Thanks.

    I can't do 10th-13th Feb at all, had a work thing sprung on me this morning. The others should be fine though.

    Would you be cool with a relative noob to this forum coming, if I could make it? (i generally do sod all in the winter/spring, so it would be a change)

    Just spotted this on the Portland site: "YOUR GORGEOUS GENTLEMAN'S RESIDENCE" - So Danielle, Gemsy or Soph aren't allowed back this year?... Actually if it's for gorgeous gentlemen then that precludes most of us XD

    "Anybody is welcome to join us." ;)

    We've had some n00bs every year, then they're not n00bs anymore.

    All dates are fine with me. Although I'd say the 31st March date would be best from the comments so far.
    Put me down for this again this year. Thanks

    17th-20th would probably be my absolute preference if someone stuck a gun to my head, but all of those dates are probably fine~~~

    I'm interested in coming along, all dates are probably fine, but if I had any preference I'd like one as close to a pay day as possible (I get paid on the 28th every month).

    Currently good for all the proposed dates, preference for the latter weekend in terms of daylight hours/warmth

    Realistically I can do any. Probably. As long as dates are confirmed before I get work, I can notify in advance :)

    My birthday is the 13th so in the unlikely event we do that weekend I want cake ala' dan and gemma ;)

    I don't tend to visit this site too often but conventions are a bit lacking nowdays so I'd definitely like to come. Any dates are fine for me :)

    I might have a friend who is interested as well.

    Sorry I am going to drop out for next year. Got to pay off a trip and and Puru has to Mexico last month, and we need to pay for flights for going back in May.

    2018 will be a goer though

    If I can please pinch a lift off someone, any date should be fine with me.

    If we end up going Val Day weekend i'll be getting drunk on my tod a la Bridget Jones style lol.

    When will definite answers be needed though as i'm renting an apartment for 3 or 4 nights for London MCM in May and again in October so I may be poor :(

    This poll about preferred dates closes tomorrow. Booking places for the actual event itself is TBD.

    Pretty sure I'll be able to again if you want to get in the death car. And forget valentines, my birthday is more important ;)
