Ng Manchester Gaming Boozefest Meet 2012-06-21 19:58:17

Where: Manchester, England
When: Aug 23-25 2012
What: Feeling mopey about lack of England meet in the Summer? Not to worry, what was originally a birthday celebration in Manchester has expanded to a mini Newgrounds meet up to make up for the loss of major Summer meet due to the Olympics. This will be a breather for those who simply find 2012 to be a dull year as well as a little something before whenever the next major meet is held.
===========================
Due to circumstances with the Gay Pride weekend, it is best avoiding the Saturday considering the jacked up prices for hotel expenses on the Saturday night. Events are held on Thursday and Friday with it being concluded Saturday daytime. Thursday will consist of all day Kyoto Lounge while Friday is... more Kyoto Lounge but with a consideration for the Odder Bar at 6PM followed by karaoke at 9PM. If you are 100% with this idea, book ASAP for hotels for which the prices on Thursday and Friday nights are still manageable. If you book on this very day, you can get hotel offers from this site. Otherwise, the expenses will be up to you.
===========================
Yes Luis, I stole your meet post template. Deal with it. Any further updates will be posted here and/or on the Facebook event. Also, may or may not come with sugar tits.

I'd have loved to come but I really doubt I'm going to be able to make it. I just can't afford it right now :(

Hmm... I'm not sure. I'll have to do some checking up.

Please note, if I say no to this one, I think it will mean no, rather than "I'm going to see if someone will fund a room for me and then I'll slip quietly onto a coach, before getting lost in the rain, in Manc."

Whereabouts are you in the UK? Would a London meet be better for you whenever the next one is held (no idea of this right now)?

I know that feeling too well.

Indeed.

The Manchester meetups are always amazing so if possible I will try and go, but will have to check out my money etc. to see if I can make it.

Fucking hell. I'd love to meet up with some bros and play some games.

There is a time when I will go to a meetup, but it is not yet.
It just seems awfully redundant until I turn 18 and can drink (still got 6 months to go on that front).

We still need to meet because I already have it planned that I need to sing Queen's Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy to you.

Quick notes for this meet: With the Kyoto Lounge not opening on Thursday or Friday until 5PM, I'll be calling the official start of the meet on Thursday 5PM so the Thursday will be a matter of showing up there. As for Friday, nothing is planned for daytime and due to restricted opening hours with the Kyoto, it might be best to scrap making our way to a restaurant and just hang around at the gaming bar for a few hours until we're ready for karaoke.

Just wondering if you guys actually think this looks cool or if you realize it looks hilarious?

The right individuals to ask are Idocreating for the fedora and Coop for the "long skinny beard".

Idocreating's brother.

Diss the fedora if you must, but no-one mocks the Coop beard.

I'll have to miss this one with my extra money going to my new PC this year. Hopefully make one next year again.

Only 6 days away until this mini meet begins. It's all going ahead to be at the Kyoto on Thursday at 5PM until it closes and for Friday night, it will be exploring around the city centre until 5 for when we go to the Kyoto Lounge for the second time. Friday night is still karaoke night at 9PM so that's our meet in the nutshell. To those that are coming next week, we'll see you there then!

I swear, this event has crept up on me very fast.

Needs more Kyoto Lounge at the end.

Well you did only give it a few months from the initial post :p

I'm sure I've said before it was only organised then because Idocreating made arrangement with his brother(s?) to go to Manchester for the weekend. I'm hoping an official UK meet will be announced for a later date soon but don't expect me to sort that one out. :P

Most unfortunate I've had to come to this but due to the dead attendance, I'm pulling out of the meet. While I would have met one or two while I was there, I feel I should save the expenses on a hotel for a more busy event than this. The other meet organiser Idocreating is still in Manchester and will keep the event page open incase any of you do pop in but you won't be seeing me for the two days.

This thing (apparently) is happening right now today.

Just thought I'd let everyone know just in case more people want to come for the remaining days...
