    Who knows though!

    We've paid £90 for the weekend including breakfast. Based on 3 in a room. Was only £70od if you filled a room up.

    It's not bad for the convenience to be perfectly honest.

    *Wait... how do I use this again?*

    I should be there Friday to Sunday and will be staying in ATH. At the time of writting this, there is space available in my room (for a small fee) if anyone needs it.

    I'd actually booked time off work for this, but after looking at transport and accommodation costs, it's cheaper for me to stay with a friend in the Netherlands and visit Efteling and Toverland :flushed:...

    Just had a peek at the who's going list - looking good!

    Should be a really good weekend.

    I hope to be arriving at the hotels around 5pm on Friday.

    What time are people arriving on the Friday? I have the day off work so will be getting there a bit earlier and might grab a bite to eat whilst there as well. I know it says meet at 6pm, but just wondering if anyone had actually made plans yet.

    The 6pm time was a guestimate really.

    But we will no doubt be in Dragon Bar/Margs sometime between 6 and 7.
