Quote from: Ithoriel on 01 June 2022, 06:52:46 PMI checked flights to Middleborough when the 30th Birthday Bash was announced. Round trip flights from Edinburgh were over £500. I could get a cheap weeks holiday on the continent for that. To be fair the cheapest option (set off at 06:00 arrive 17:55) involved a stopover in Holland! 

Insane... it only cost me £90 each way from B'ham to the Burgh!

That £180 now seems to be £250ish... unless I go top end for a grand plus :/

Booking ahead seems a little better but sheesh.

Train fare... same price or more, although theres a flashing ONLY LIMITED TICKETS LEFT that's £140...
I provide a cheap, quick painting service to get you table top quality figures ready to roll - www.facebook.com/jtppainting

Wow, also shocked at those prices...500£ used to be able to get you from Vancouver to Montreal in first class. (Some 4550 km) currently $380-390 cdn (about 247£)

For "local" travel it might almost be cheaper to hop on a horse.

Family have finally made up their minds about what and when they are doing so we are now able to come to the 'bash'.

Are there any plans for a meal/get together on the Saturday evening yet ? If so we would take two places.

That's great news, good to hear you'll be joining us!

We've not had anyone else mention staying over though, so I'm not sure if we'll have the numbers for it currently.

Leon,

Thanks for allowing those of us not in the neighborhood to keep track of the festivities.

Great stuff.  Discord is a great site for miniature gamers.

I've no idea about Discord, how it works or whether it's any good or not - although I just signed up.

Ithoriel

I use Discord for my regular Monday, Wednesday and  Friday online board gaming sessions on Board Game Arena and also for group chat for dungeon runs, and the like, in online RPG's. I find it both easy to use and very useful.

I'm completely new to it as well, I've had to get my eldest to set it up for us and explain how it works.  There's an ageing experience, when your kids have to explain something to you for the first time...!

Jamie will be in charge of the Discord server during the day, adding pictures of all the games at regular intervals.  We'll also have a live-stream running through a tablet, so we'll move that around each game as well, probably every half hour or so.

I know!  The worst bit is that I had to give up after a while and just get him to do it.
