Christmas Do

I have arranged for a hot buffet at TV21, and the room downstairs so we can play some tunes and show some episodes.

It'll cost £15 each, which covers food and room hire.

Room hire costs £50, so if more than 10 people come I'll put the excess into a pot to get some drinks in.

I need people to pay a deposit of a £10 soon as please.

    Excellent night, thank you to you all for turning up (David Roberts was ill sadly, so here is to next time!)

    Hope everyone had a really good time, and we'll be looking into doing another event like this closer to summer - maybe a masquerade and/or cosplay ball?

    Anyone with a SCART lead would be good... All mine have been binned, just HDMI and the projector doesn't support that!

    First time I've organised one of these, so learning curve ahoy! :D

      Scart to Scart for bluray, be dvi to scart from lappy.

      Wish I'd checked my bloody leads last weekend!

    Right, I've got Spotify Premium now, so music should be taken care of - just as soon as I've cracked the password on the old laptop!

      I'd say if its on a pen drive then it doesn't hurt to have options

    Also, I'll be there around 6:15 - grab a drink and I'll get things sorted out when I get there

  • Dave E.

    Also got a feeling I've missed the power lead for the bluray, massive derp on my part, so anyone with one if they could bring the power cord!

    Reading through the comments this sounds like it would have been quite fun. Would have been my first social, but I've only just spotted this so I think I've missed the deadline. Hopefully there will be more things like this?

    November 29, 2013

    • Dave E.

      There will be hopefully, with there being some interest in this I'll look into something nearer springtime!

  • Phil

    Sorry, ended up being super busy and didn't check up here. That'll learn me for the future though!

    November 28, 2013

  • Dave E.

    I'm in Manchester tomorrow, so I'm going to give Max and Phil an extra day as I can pop into TV21 tomorrow afternoon to confirm numbers. After that, no more RSVPs, and anyone who hasn't paid/made arrangements with me, sorry but you'll be unRSVPd.

    November 26, 2013

  • Claire Louise G.

    Hi, am I still able to RSVP this?

    November 26, 2013

    • Dave E.

      If you can get me the deposit by tomorrow afternoon, yes :)

      November 26, 2013

  • Dave E.

    Just waiting for Phil, Max and Matt to either pay or make an arrangement!

    Sorry to be harsh, but if it's not received by next Tuesday I'm going to have to unRSVP you as TV21 need to know numbers.

    We're also running a surplus (the room was £50, so I set the price on 10 people turning up) and the winnings from coming second at the quiz have been donated, all of which means we'll be getting a drink or two as part of the payment. I need to figure how to do that bit though...

    Also want suggestions for TV and music! Terry has suggested Big Bang Theory. Any others?

    November 22, 2013

    • Emma

      I'll take a look through my collection tonight - how does it work with playing stuff, can we hook up a laptop, connect a pen drive, or does it have to be on DVD?

      November 22, 2013

    • Dave E.

      A question I shall be asking shortly! It's projector, so I'm assuming it'll have both USB and HDMI connectors.

      I've got a blu-ray player I can bring down, and also the ye olde iPad, which if they've a good wifi connection gives us Netflix...

      November 22, 2013

  • Phil

    Will pay shortly, looking forward to it!

    November 20, 2013

  • Terry K.

    Any plans on what your thinking of showing? I assume it would be digital only, only thing I have suitable is The Big Bang Theory Series 1-5

    November 20, 2013

  • Daniel

    Sounds good, I am going to find up how to do online bank transfers from my English account to join this event:-)

    November 20, 2013

  • Ash D.

    Paid, sent full £15 too since I'd probably forget it later :P

    November 19, 2013

    • Dave E.

      Now I've got to go and do a spreadsheet to keep track of who has paid in full! :P

      November 20, 2013

    • Ash D.

      Yaaaaay spreadsheets! :D

      November 20, 2013

    I may be in Manchester but only after 7pm so schedule permitting, would like to come if able

    1 · November 13, 2013

    • Dave E.

      That's not a problem - I doubt we'll start the buffet 'til after 7 so as I expect others will be running late.

      Just sort out the deposit and I'll place you as confirmed, as TV21 need to know the number of people!

      1 · November 13, 2013

    • Terry K.

      Sorry Dave, I keep forgetting to go to the bank. I'm definitely going though. I'll set a reminder for Monday

    November 5, 2013

    Since this is also the day after my birthday I'm really really hoping my works Christmas do doesn't end up on this date :)

    November 5, 2013

  • Leroy

    I'd definitely like to be a pat of this, however can not make that evening, the night before however is a different story...

    October 31, 2013

  • Tristan A.

    I'm now a maybe. If the date is changed to a Monday as has been suggested I won't be able to make it due to work.

    October 28, 2013

  • Dave E.

    Solita have got back to me and we can hire out a floor on the provisio we average a minimum of £30 a head. For that we can have a themed day and access to a screen - what do people think?

    October 21, 2013

    • Shaz

      I'm going to bite the bullet and I say I prefer the cheap option.

      1 · October 25, 2013

    • Dave E.

      No worries, been in contact with TV21 - may be able to get us a good deal!

      1 · October 27, 2013
