I usually announce these things well in advance. There isnt much info.

Provided that the world doesnt end at the end of the year, this is on.
I'm going to stay off the radar as far as events go in 2013, I have some big projects I want to finally release.
So probably the only event I host next year. <3

=================================

Where: London, England
When: January 18-19, 2013
What: Annual gathering of Newgrounds users.

=================================

I'll populate the hub page with more info as the date nears. I know its a weird time of the year to have an event, but its the most economical and I turn 21 that weekend. Plus we've done it in January before so whatever.

I'll see if I can conjure up the money to go this year. I've never been to London but I've always wanted to go. So long as we can get drunk I'll be happy.

I'm going to have to make some effort of some description, then. Birthday season with Luis in a chilly London? We can all have man hugs and warm up. Gagsy, this does mean that you're still invited, it will make the hugs so much better.

Lies. It's me who'll be turning 21 around that time. The day before the meet.

I don't want to be that guy who posts in the thread just to say "I can't come" but yea, I don't think I'll make it this time. As much as I'd like to say hi again, I just can't be arsed with London. It's not for me.

When's the next Philly Meet, Luis? That's like the only one I can see myself being able to afford this year, except MAYBE a NY meet, but that's it.

That just puts me off. Hummm, the time of year sounds right though. Considering the most active months of the year by work terms. But still, the prospect of a bunch of random men tying to bundle me into a hug does not sound appealing.

Hmm. I might actually be able to go to this one. Depends where I am at the time, but the days themselves shouldn't be a problem like they were this year.

Seconded. No way in hell am I 5 years older than Luis. I demand to see some I.D next meet.

I would love to go, but London might be to expensive for me, it depends if I get any good money before then or not as currently I don't have much spare. Don't suppose anyone has a spare place to rest at if the hotels are ridiculously expensive. From having a quick look some of them are reasonable while others are stupidly dear, will only know for sure when I know which ones would be close to the meetup etc. I guess.

Also if I was to have a hotel would totally need a room mate, hint Gagsy.

Mike just said via NG Chat that he's in for a NG London Meet in January. So you know, no pressure Mike, but if you don't go now then you're a horrible liar who lies and stuff :(

The negative person in me wants to read this as sarcasm 3:

I would love to meet you Otto! I'll do my best to go. Just always an awkward time of year just after Christmas (got 3 nephews to spoil rotten) and my parents birthdays both being in January and I don't earn much but its been way too long since I went to a meet. I'll try putting some money aside if I can and hope that my social (and self loathing) hangups don't stop me once again.

Not one iota. A NG meet has been something I've wanted to do for years.

Aye it's one of those things that is probably pretty difficult; how much would a person need to bring to get through one of these? Just so I know what to start putting away.

This is like the Fausto Carmona thing - that ID is false. Wonchop, mock something up, it's bound to be a trafficked minor.

I really do need facial hair for that meet... possibly bring the clippers along as well and have it evolve over the course of the meet... Mike's beard is awesome (for a ginger) and we've not even heard from Bezman yet...

Difficult? Pfft; the only hard part is working out if you have the free time to go or not.

how much would a person need to bring to get through one of these? Just so I know what to start putting away.

You basically need 3 things:
A bus / train ticket to get you there and back.
Somewhere to stay (do NOT rely on people saying they'll let you sleep on their floor; there's always someone who offers people a place for the night and then doesn't show up themselves).
Some spare cash for food / drinks / whatever.

The place to stay shouldn't cost you more than £80, even for London. The London meet I was at last, I got a room for £65, and it wasn't even that bad either. At the end of the day, a bed's a bed.

The bus / train will depend entirely on how far away you're traveling from and when in the day you plan to travel down there, so shopping around for times and / or getting a friend to drive you to the next station and back can result in big discounts to travel costs. the only sure-fire thing here is that buses are almost always cheaper, but will take longer to get you there. Preference over either is down to you, really.

And as for food / drink / party / hooker / etc. money... well, Luis and a couple other regulars are too damn nice for their own good and end up acting like the group's communal wallet half the time, so you'll usually end up with a few freebies along the way. Just bring enough money to ensure you don't starve or die of thirst. I managed this on about £30 for the 2 main days it went on for last time.

TL;DR: Have a look around; it's the only way to know what kind of prices you'll be dealing with.
