After going to Xyli's daoc prydwen meet, I thought how fun it would be to organise something very similar for excalibur. At the moment I am looking to book the Main Room at the pub listed below (which has great beer and an old albion style decor) which holds 100+ people. Obviously if it seems a lot more will come, I'll change the plans a bit, or maybe book the basement too (an extra 80 people).

The date is not set in stone, I just merely picked a date that's after my exams(and others' exams!) and is suitably far away for people to arrange travel and places to stay.


When: Saturday, May 28th 2005
Where: Cittie of Yorke, 22 High Holborn LONDON, WC1V 6BS
(MAP)

Time: 5pm onwards


Travel Info:
To London: www.ryanair.com , www.easyjet.com

For those coming from outside UK:
Fly to London Stansted(variable cost), then arrange a Coach (www.nationalexpress.com) to take you from Stansted(edge of london) to Victoria(centre of london). This costs £15 for a return ticket. The alternative to the Coach is the Stansted Express train, which takes half the time but which is more expensive (not sure how much).
Once in centre, buy a Day Travelcard (£4.50)from tube station, or Bus Pass (£2.40) from news seller, this allows travel for the whole day on either tube+bus, or just bus, in Zones 1+2 in London (for zones, see any tube map).

To the Cittie of Yorke: Tube= Chancery Lane, Buses= http://www.tfl.gov.uk/buses/spiders...ancery-lane.pdf

Hotels and Hostels:
The best deals are in west london

I can help if anyone gets lost on the day

heh well, I'd love to go to london but at the moment I'm really short of cash. Altough with Ryanair it could be possible to fly there with 20e :p

Good idea, but a location more central for most people than London would be good maybe...

7 quid for 2 pints in covent garden

but the sam smiths pub we were in on saturday night was 2 pounds a pint, bloody cheap for london, quite reasonable for anywhere else.

Though it is all Sam Smiths beer so it's kinda like drinking tescos own brand stout instead of guinness..

Make it A'Dam. Just a ferry ride away for us UK types and easy for everyone in Europe to get to.

Everyone seems to be quite shy about posting if they are coming or not, so we had a little chat with the #karelia chaps to encourage people to sign upl ;)

So, at least me, Salamurhaaja, Raid, and Hihanauha(aka, Nappi) are going to join, and maybe Horsma teh skald aswell ;)
(Finnish reinforcements inc!)

Hope to see lots of people there!

nerf not being able to edit :(
