It depends what type of event you want...

If its for newbs then i have one friend i could ask he is keen but doesnt know how to play so...not sure


There is that D8ve S8mpson on FB he is the organiser of Manor con and midcon. ... he was trying to orgainise something called scottishcon in Edinburgh its advertised on board game geek....who played Germany at derby last year I will message him he may well know some people.... Or connect with him on FB Phleg?.

He may well know some people. Or midcon itself would be good place maybe speak to jeremy. He may have list of players there were at least 4 at Derby who expressed an interest. Then andy gunther's poodle. He is unreliable because his mother isnt well but if he can he would play.
Also there a guy called squasher on this site he is not active but he may be interested I have him phone number so I will ring him.

Strategus also has some championship-winning hounds who could at a push play - *woof*

CaptainMeme is also local as in stockport and had pal he brought last year.

Good stuff Dib. The more the merrier. Also, if there are enough players you won’t have to fear playing with me on a board! :D

I’ll try to generate some interest there for MaccCon. We all want it to be a success. Can you recommend any of the hotels near the venue Phleg? Also - with that many people attending might it be wise to reserve tables at a curry house?


There's a decent curry house a few doors up, so I'll get that booked well in advance!

Drumming up interest in London would be fantastic, thanks Gun. It's only a 1hr 45min train journey from Euston and the station is 10 mins from the venue, so they've got no excuse not to attend :D

As regards hotels, I'm not an expert as I've never had to use one here, but I know there's a big Travelodge right by the station and a few B&B's within 5min walking distance of the venue too. I'll do a bit more research. and get back to you all...
