I know there is a tread about this in random samples but it seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle.

EuCon 05

So, is anyone from the UK or Europe going to be there.  It would be nice to meet up up if anyone is.

I know what you mean Rick, after all, my Dad's from Manchester.

Then again, those of us from Notts have got to show those Robin Hood thieving gits a thing or two

I received this email the other day;

Dear Slaine mac Roth,
If you've been wondering what's been going on with EuCon'05 then, itís
because we had the rug pulled from beneath our feet before the weekend
by our ďfriendsĒ at Leeds Metropolitan University Student Union.
Stewart phoned them to discuss a few details related to our booking only to
be told they could no longer accommodate us as the venue is being
refurbished. Never mind that we had a booking, never mind that itís only two
a half weeks to go until the event..... they couldnít seem to give a
toss, it would seem.

So whilst Stew takes the appropriate course of action against the LMSU
head on (like a particularly rampant and weathered old bull), the EuCon
Committee has been busy ensuring that (a) the event goes ahead, and (cool.gif
thatís its still a ripper!

After much fretting, running around and general panic here in EuCon
Land we are pleased to announce the new venue for EuCon05: "Leeds
University Union - The Old Bar". You'd think we'd be wary of University
facilities by now, wouldn't ya? We'd like to thank the Old Bar for making
their facilities available to us at such short notice, especially as
they're far superior to those at LMSU (looks like their decision to refurb
actually did us a favour!).

It gets better....
Venue will be open from noon to 11pm for EuCon. Then, in a different
part of the venue, they hold the Rock Of Ages rock club which stays open
until 3am!!

It gets better.....
The Old Bar is less than a quarter of a mile from both the Leeds Met
and The Merrion Hotel, making your stagger home a short and pain free
one. If you get peckish midway through EuCon there is basic fare in the
venue and also a small supermarket and a number of restaurants very close
by.

IT GETS BETTER!!!!
The Old Bar manager asked Stewart to ask you guys "would you like to
have some real ale to drink on the day?"

There is only one downside to the venue that we can see - due to a very
strict licensing policy under 18s are only allowed in until 8pm.
Stewart is seeking permission to extend this to 11pm, but we can't promise
anything just yet. If this causes a problem with children, or if you
yourself are under 18, please drop an email to info@rusheucon.com

TICKETS
Tickets won't be sent out in advance of the event this year. Obviously
the late change in venue has made things a bit more interesting on the
ticketing front. Thus your ticket will be awaiting you at the Old Bar
on the day, available to collect anytime after 12pm.

Talking of tickets, they're selling very healthily indeed. We hope to
have some tickets for sale on the day, but the best way to guarantee
your spot is to buy in advance: visit the EuCon website for details.

See you on the day!
