    HEXUS.social - Bletchley Park - 25th October 2008 - Milton Keynes

    PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE to 25th October 2008

    Following on from this thread:

    http://forums.hexus.net/general-disc...hley-park.html

    I've decided to do another annual Bletchley Park meet.

    PLEASE NOTE THE PLAN CHANGE - this is now confirmed


    1pm - Meet at Bletchley Station
    Day and evening @ Bletchley Park (as some people have been before and there is so much to explore, we may split into groups for this bit... or set a meeting point for Tea and Cake in Bletchely Park canteen - meet up again later on for the blitznight fireworks.) Last time I checked entry for a year was £10.
    Parking is either £3 or £5... those driving can meet at mine (12.00pm) and lift share to bletchley to cut down on parking costs if desired!

    Evening:
    9.30pm sitting for Buffet at Red Hot World for 20 - I need to know numbers for this part.
    http://www.redhot-worldbuffet.com/mi...nes/index.html

    House party at Moby or Rai's (credit crunch option!)

    Attendees:
    Tiggerai
    Rastamanblues
    Funkstar
    Gerrard
    OiD
    JK Ferret
    Agent
    Lee@Scan
    99Flake (+jen)
    Chicken
    TheAnimus
    Sumanji
    Moby-Dick +1
    Buzzsaw
    Watforddude
    Salazaar
    Digit


    I have a few crashing spaces (normal rules apply, it'll be cosy!) and wondering if Moby may have some too.

    I was away to say I'll be at this one - but NationalRail.co.uk only hold journeys 12 weeks in advance, so I guess I'll know for sure if I can do it in a week or two.

    Ideally I could do it all in a day, would save me getting a hotel!

    Migraines eh? Any old excuse (jokes, before you cyber yell at me)

    Wasn't the club last time a 21+ affair? Because that was the tertiary reason for my non-admittance last time (primary being dress and secondary being lack of ID... both of which I'll triple to check to make sure I bring this time )

    Oh, I'm in btw, in case you hadn't guessed from the above line

    You went up town with no ID and no dress code?

    Where do you live normally?

    Well, I was born with no dress code or ID, why should I conform to everyone else? I like to think I'm unique

    Unique in being turned down from entry?

    The problem with places that have a dress code is that they don't appreciate the wonders of glowsticks!

    Under 18's are welcome to come to Bletchley Park and to Dinner, and we can also make sure you get back on a train if needs be.

    We took glowsticks last time, this isn't a rave though, this is going out, it's a whole other ball game.


    Yes, JK caused me no end of grief last time (joking, it worked out ok in the end) so HE WILL be bringing proper shoes and a shirt as well as ID this time. (we'll give Oceana a go, but if they check ID then we'll go somewhere else)
