    We've now secured a property and paid the deposit - UKAstock 2017 is GO GO GO.

    If you're interested in attending, here are all of the details you need to know:

    What
    UKAstock is our annual get-together of like-minded folks from this site and forum who want a weekend of hanging out, nattering, playing games of various stripes, watching anime (occasionally), drinking (mostly tea) and generally having a ball with some great people!

    When
    UKAstock 2017 takes place from Friday 31st March 2017 until Monday 3rd April 2017

    Where
    For the UKAstock weekend, we'll be taking up residence at Portland House c1870. It has 13 servant bells (which one summons Saber? Nobody can be sure), and that's all you need to know.

    Oh, that and where it's located I suppose: Here's the Google Map, the location is just outside of Matlock Bath, postcode DE4 3PX

    Who
    Hopefully you! Portland House homes 24 people, including four double bedrooms.

    I WANT TO COME TO UKASTOCK
    Yes. Yes, you do.

    How?
    First of all, let me know - feel free to post your interest in this thread, but also PM me (that's me, Hanners) with your name and e-mail address - I'll then add you to the provisional list of attendees.

    However, your attendance will only be set in stone when you've paid your deposit for UKAstock, which leads me to:

    How much?
    To secure your place at UKAstock 2017, a deposit of 36.50 is required, to be made payable to myself via PayPal or bank transfer. To book a double room, the required deposit is (unsurprisingly) double, at 73. Obviously, we'd prefer to have double rooms occupied by couples in the first instance, so they'll get first refusal. Please note that this deposit is non-refundable

    Once the deposit is paid, you're signed up for a place at UKAstock, but a further final payment is required to settle the balance: This is 109.12 for a total cost of 145.62 (or 218.24 and 291.24 for a double room). Final payment is required by 31st January 2017 - if full payment is not received by this date, you may lose your place!

    Please note that if we can't fill all 24 places then we may have to request extra to cover the shortfall - we'll be doing all we can to fill all of the places and are reasonably confident this won't be an issue though.

    Also, if you've booked your place but will struggle to make your final payment at any time, please feel free to get in touch to discuss it with me.


    So, there you have it - here's the plan, now it's over to you to sign up, pay up and look forward to a great weekend away! If you've dozed off at this point, here's the Cliff Notes version:

    UKAstock 2017
    Date: Friday 31st March 2017 - Monday 3rd April 2017
    Place: Portland House c1870 - DE4 3PX
    Deposit: 36.50 (73 for double room)
    Final payment: 109.12 (218.24 for double room)

    Looking forward to seeing all you folks!

    Any questions or things I've missed, please speak up and I'll fill in any details or field any questions!

    Me + 1 please. Double room if available

    Also: Is the place dog friendly, and would anyone object to a small dog? We don't need to take him with us, but it's nice to know our options.

    Does anyone live in Sheffield, close to the train station who would just so happen to have a spare bed on the Thursday?

    I suspect Matlock bath station would be better this time.

    We've had enough responses to fill over half our allocation already, so don't forget to drop me a PM if you want to come along folks - book early to avoid disappointment and all that! ;)

    For those curious, I've updated the first post with a list of those currently signed up to attend, as well as how many deposits and full totals have been paid.

    There's still two double rooms to fill and a number of other spaces up for grabs!

    Sent my PM. I guess I'm a tenuous UKA member at best, but I have met some of you in the past at least. Will be good to catch up if I managed to get in in time.

    We're down to one more open space at UKAstock - anyone beyond that point will go on the reserve list, so now is the time to take a deep breath and add yourself to our merry band!

    I'm also waiting for 6 outstanding deposits at this point in time (which should be 5 later today), so if you haven't paid up yet then don't forget to do so to ensure you don't lose your spot.
