Only this time it's going to be totally rad, because Kelsey will be there (ssh, no comments from the peanut gallery)!

Duckula and I began discussing this in IRC today. Who would be interested in going? And where do you suggest that said omgwtfkkwbbq take place?

I, for one, would not miss it for the world. And my vote is for London. Or Monaco. Yes, London or Monaco.

London... definatley london..

London is a touch more accessible than Monaco for me.

Kelsey
08-07-2005, 06:42 PM
Lol, I think it is for everyone.

Oh, and it would take place September-ish, right?

sounds good to me... probably best at a weekend... becuase of schools/unis/jobs etc... and peoples travel requirements

I guess I'm not allowed to come since I'm not 18... :(

I don't think its an automatic disqualification.

If it was in London, I'd try to save up for a ticket (not like the parents would let me come, though).

I guess everyone would be accepted, unless you either
a) don't exist
b) have suicidal/homicidal tendancies, although to be fair, that might add some drama to the occasion
c) complain to quite possibly extreme quantities of alcohol
d) Likely to get older men locked up

How much are we looking at to invest in? Enough for a weekend, or an entire week?

Duck: I think Ardnax is referring to the this reply:

im sorry but we are going to have to restrict this to 18 and over, we cant be held responsible for the well being of minors.

as i will be at school then working hard to edify myself i decline. hope you all have fun though. ill be in london and florence or the netherlands fall 06. so perhaps ill see some of you then.

Liam
10-07-2005, 08:28 AM
London I might be able to do. It would have to be very early in September for Leonie to make it though.

I proffer my residence here in the Netherlands for use, should people want to move the venue. I have enough room to sleep 7 or 8 in my room (new house rocks), I have private balconies and lots of cold beer. Also, my house is almost deserted so passing out Jesus-position in the hallways or in the kitchen won't offend anyone.

Ashley
10-07-2005, 08:32 AM
I propose webcams or some sort of recording devices so those like myself who can't make it due to schooling, work, or other can get a taste of the festivities.

Sarah
10-07-2005, 01:23 PM
I might actually get my arse to this one, seeing as I'm 18 now.

bring it to oz. we actually have the chops to throw a good bbq.

deviljet88
11-07-2005, 05:06 AM
Excellent idea. Though Ashley's is a bit practical.

Leonie
11-07-2005, 07:41 AM
Hmmm... September? I won't be attending then, uni will have started. I was so close to making it last time, and now I will be missing it again :(

However, I think Liam's idea is brilliant. Why not have a Dutch KKWOMGWTFBBQ? My room would provide space for another 5 people. And I have a comfy couch, if anyone's interested.

Narg

I'd go. But im poor and its in another country, but I'd enjoy meeting the people on this forum and see what they are really like.

Kelsey
11-07-2005, 09:56 PM
I could make it to a Netherlands one if we push back the date a bit. I get back to Europe on August 28th and get paid a hundred euros a week, so wherever it is, I need a few weeks.

Baz, what do you think would be the best date for you (if we had it at your house).

Leonie, still no for you if it's held on a weekend in London? (I don't know how the whole uni thing works over there)

Liam
11-07-2005, 10:04 PM
A hundred euro a week? How why what where when?

As far as Dutch university goes - I believe they start back very early in September and don't have a break until mid-to-late October. Leonie has told me that a weekend trip to London is 99.99% out of the question, at least till much later in the year.

Kelsey
11-07-2005, 10:15 PM
Maybe we could do it in October? That would give me more time, which would help. Maybe the extra time would get a few more people on board also.

I'm making 100 euros a week to be an american influence, lol, for these three little french girls. Free room and board, free car, free trips to Spain and Provence, just to be there.

Digital_Ice

I'll be going back to uni the last week of August. That's just the introduction week though, and I've been properly introduced last year already, so I might just leave it.

I *might* be able to make it on a random weekend, as I probably won't be going on holiday this summer. A city break would be a nice alternative.

As for October... that would be even better. It would indeed give everyone a little more time to organise things. You are all still more than welcome to come over to the Netherlands though :)

Also, Kelsey, your job sounds awesome! I've been to the Provence on holiday, and it's *so* beautiful. Spain is probably my favourite country, I must have been there a dozen times at least, it's great. The people are really nice, the food is good, the country is pretty... Lucky you :)

Kelsey
13-07-2005, 07:11 PM
I vote for October, simply because I think more people will be able to make it, and I personally will have more money and be more settled into the whole Europe thing. Plus, after a month, I will be homesick as all Hell, and seeing people like Baz, and Cliff, and Duck, and Liam, and other people who I've spent the last few years with, will be a lot more meaningful. For me, anyways.

I really don't care where we have it. Sometime in the next year, I have to go back to London, and I have to make it to the Netherlands, for the Vermeers. I initially thought London because more people are there and if more people are in that area, it will be cheaper. If people don't mind going there, I certainly don't.

Could we just go to Chuck E. Cheese instead?

duckula
23-08-2005, 07:22 PM
Alright you lesbians. I propose that we do this thing. Sometime in september is probably the best time.

Kelsey
23-08-2005, 08:01 PM
In England? If it's going to be as soon as September, then that is probably the best place for me. I leave for France this coming Sunday.

Anyone else staying in a hotel for the night?

Everyone that doesn't live in London has to stay in hotel, I guess. At least I am.. Anyone knows what that costs? Approximately?
At least the plane ticket isn't very expensive, about 100 Euro.

barrington
24-08-2005, 07:52 PM
Alright. You'll all need to bring a Sleeping Bag, a toothbrush, some party clothes, a camera and some money (for food and drink).

Don't worry about hotels, I can sleep everyone in my house no problem.

Now for the science part:

London:
http://www.kkwavefront.org/images/london_baz.jpg

Now, imagine the Tube map on top of that. Hard I know, but it'll make sense once you get here. Honest.

http://www.kkwavefront.org/images/london_baz2.jpg

I live about 1hr 40m from Heathrow Airport on the tube, maybe 2hrs max from Gatwick if you're coming from afar. Those from Europe might be getting the Eurostar which terminates at Waterloo (just next to Southwark on the Grey coloured Jubilee Line) so about 25 mins from there.

We can arrange the rest as we go....

apoggy
24-08-2005, 09:49 PM
I think I can be persuaded into attending, dependent on my work status, but as its a weekend I dont see any problems. The only problem I foresee is a terribly long queue for the bathroom in the morning/late afternoon. Hellish.

24-08-2005, 10:41 PM

bollocks bollocks bollocks...

I am now basically unemployed, and very low on funds...
and I (as are most people) am paid for work out of sync... and I've just realised something alarming... i won't actually have the money for the train to london... until the tuesday after the BBQ... which is a bitch (tis a very good job I didn't try buying my train ticket a few days ago... or i would have got a rude letter from the bank manager)
so unless something miraculous happens in the next week, i doubt I'll be able to make it... which i am very pissed off about.

ah well, maybe next year.

Head down, missy! Oh, and make sure you've got something to float on. We are getting drenched from the outer bands of this thing and the eye is several hundred miles away.
You're in Denton right? If so, you'll get a fair amount of wind and a whole lot of rain.
Enjoy Coldplay. I hope they don't cancel.
