UKlink can happen - but I'll need details.

For those of you who don't know - it is going to be a pseudo uplink convention. Some uplink stuff as well as a barbeque (+drinks of your choice) and possibly LAN gaming.

The possible dates are as follows:-

Between Friday 11th of July to Sunday 20th of July.

It could be Friday 11th to Sunday 13th or Friday 18th to Sunday 20th. OR, if it suits you guys, midweek.

You'd arrive the evening or afternoon of the first day and leave the same time, ish, on the 3rd day.

It would be held at my place - south wales, near carmarthen - which has a railway station.

A lift could be arranged to and from the train station if necessary. Directions will of course be provided.

More details will be available - you'll have to ask me what you want to know.

Bring sleeping bags if you can - but there'll be some spares.
Bring your PCs if you want - oh and someone bring a big hub.

Drinks will be provided and food - but we'll each have to pay a bit and I'll pay for most of the food, etc..

Who's up for it?

Shit I'd love to make it but I can't that weekend. Pity Aoife and I were looking forward to a holiday and we were going to include UKlink as part of it.

Ah well, maybe next time...

...and you can't come because?
I went to my mates place near London when I was 12. On my own of course.
By train.

But if you can't come, it isn't the end of the world.

If this one is a success I might organise others.

Oh and this is veterans of the forums only - no complete n00bs are allowed.
Sorry.

I was planning on comming to this since back in may, now that it's a reality, you have left little notice. I work on weekends now and can't get time off, so if it's finally planned at a weekend, count me out. Other than that, if my previous arrangements hold up, (/me glances at Nitro :)) I'll be there.

We don't need to bring our PCs - but you can if you want.
What drinks do you guys want?
/me has access to a cash n' carry

You'll have to help me pin down the most convenient days.

M'eh, probably won't be able to make it this year(besides, am I considered a veteran yet? :P). Will there be another one in the future, if this one goes OK?

/me fully supports USLink.  heheh, CRH and WolfLord are in Illinois as well as me.  We should all meet up at a hotel in Chicago or something.  I do wish I was in the U.K. though, I'd go to the meetup for sure.
