Re: Textpattern user group meetup: Bristol, UK - autumn 2015

I’m not seeing any 39GBP rooms in Weston-super-Mare, but Portishead looks doable and cheap:

Edit: prices are pretty good, too: Friday night is 35GBP, Saturday is 39GBP, Sunday is 29GBP.

Let me know if definitely Portishead and whether I need to book 2 nights (the Friday and Saturday) or just Saturday night. Premier Inn is fine for me.

No. Premier Inn is great — you know what you’re getting — and Portishead seems the closest, unless we start looking at B&Bs on the sea front…

Just wanted to try and avoid a drive back to the hotel so I can at least have a pint of cider or something. Maybe there’s some pubic [sic] transport options between Portishead and Weston.

Let’s say Portishead. I misinterpreted your posts and got in a tizzy, so I’m on board for Portishead Premier Inn. Phil’s OK with that, too – so I say we go for it. JFDI, and all that.

I’ll update OP to reflect venue choice.

Oki doke. I may try for both Friday and Saturday, since I might have the family tagging along. That gives them a full day to toddle off and explore the area while we meet up on Saturday. It’s a 4-hour trek though unless I can convince them to hop on the train to Meadowhell so I can slingshot by and pick them up, which shaves an hour off the journey. Or I take the day off so we can leave earlier. Hmm, that has merit.

How long can 5 blokes (not Blokes) chat for in a pub? Is the Saturday enough? Make it a full day on the Saturday, crash, driving home Sunday, perhaps? I’d be inclined to have a Friday eve getting-to-know-you chit-chat then Saturday is when the real stuff starts. What you you reckon?

Re: Textpattern user group meetup: Bristol, UK - autumn 2015

Right, I’m hitting the buy button and getting two nights: Friday + Saturday.

Friday PM is the (optional) pre-show gathering, Saturday AM is when things start proper, and Sunday AM we go our own ways.

Good man. I’ll check if the family fancy roaming that part of the country and book accordingly tonight.

Re: Textpattern user group meetup: Bristol, UK - autumn 2015

I’m going to book 2 nights because I’m driving down after work on the Friday and it takes a couple of hours to get there from here – so probably wouldn’t be there until about 9pm earliest. I can then go running in the morning and then drive to Weston Super Mare around lunchtime Saturday.

We switched to Portishead instead, Phil – no Saturday driving needed (if I understand correctly).

(Bloody hellfire, this forum is hard to keep up with at the moment – my inbox is melting.)
