I should be able to do 20/5/17, so count me in.
That brings us up to five or six, doesn't it?

As for slow responses - it's a pretty slow forum, I'm checking weekly or fortnightly, rather than daily or hourly as I was ten years ago.

Totalling things up (including a few answers I've had via other channels).

No:
None

I've also got one spectator from the INQ28 Facebook group, but no-one's contacted me asking to play 28mm so far, so I'm very doubtful there'll be enough people for that.

Still, just the 54mm list looks healthier than the one and two half answers I had before.

Anyway, I'm working on a crib sheet for IRE that summarises most of the changes from the LRB, which will hopefully make it easier for people to launch into the playtesting on the day. More on that when it's done.

I can potentially look at playing some games later this year.  Far more likely to be after September, but summer isn't entirely out of the question.
Other than the possible event in Hemel on 28th October, there's nothing planned quite that far ahead, but we'll keep you posted.

Well you can add me to the maybe list. All I have to do is jump on the train. But I need to check if I'm available that weekend.

Based on the current responses, I've booked two 6' x 4' tables for 20th May, which are now confirmed.

Should there be a surge of interest, I'll try to get another, but that would mean better numbers than we've had since the Eramus Affair in Autumn 2013.

I've managed to free up May 20th so colour me attending!
Do you want us prepared to GM a game each, Marco?

Huzzah! Well, the current "Yes" answers are at least enough to fill one table and hopefully we'll get most of the maybes to fill the second.

As far as GMs, I'm expecting to spend the day GMing (in order that I can be all authoritative on the IRE rules), but I'm trying to keep most of the other scenarios relatively GM-lite. I think most of the omniscient narration can be handled via something like a card deck, letting the players handle the rest of the GM role between them.

In any case, I'm getting close to having the players' briefing pack ready, even if I'm a way off having the entire event ready.
