Event: June 3rd @ WHW, with John Blanche
« on: May 19, 2017, 06:42:42 PM »
Update:This is currently being booked in, details as soon as possible!

Original post:
It looks like an event from the Inquisitorium Facebook group has fallen through, and I've had John Blanche contact me off the back of that saying he'd like to join some (54mm) games at WHW.

I've contacted WHW and the only viable day is the 3rd (the day the original event fell through). I know that's very short notice and very close on the tail of New Dawn, but it's not something that needs to be a mega event - just a few people would be fine.

Can I take numbers and see if this plan might hold any water at all?

Even though it's short notice I can't see why not......... Is Mr Blanche really going to be there?

Pencil me in.

I haven't managed to get all my NPC guard sorted for tomorrow, but I have got most of them a lot more presentable than last time!

It's not an absolute promise, as John is fairly frail these days, but what he's said so far is that he should be able to make it.

I'm super tempted, but I think my future father in law has his birthday party/lunch that weekend.

So I'm kind of disappointed that I likely won't be able to make it, as getting to meet Mr Blanche would be really cool.

I've had three people (other than John) say they're available so far, so I've put in a booking for two tables. (Which I presume will be more than enough - given the short notice and the fact we're competing with the UK games expo).

It's only just gone in, so it's not yet confirmed, but I was told on Friday that they still had loads of free tables, so we should be okay.

I have to confirm as a no-show for this (and it's killing me because this is such an awesome opportunity).

Still OK to go :)

What are the plans Game-wise? Shall I just bring 'everything' again?

I have no more than vague ideas right now, as I've barely had time to sort anything since the announcement*, but I hope to give you guys some idea of what's going on as soon as possible.

We are, however, confirmed booked in!

* Saturday was the IRE test day, Sunday was a boating event,  Monday started with an hour and a half getting a plastic sack off a boat prop, followed up by a major gearbox failure on the other boat, and then ended with the foulest dog vomit I have ever encountered. And today so far has been punting the failed boat to a boatyard so it can be left there for repairs. So yeah.
