Let's see how Lucky Luton is for me
"It's time to play the music, It's time to light the lights..."
A quick note as I'm at work today and will be super busy till about 6pm! :O
For those who have played the team event in previous years, I'm hoping this year will be...well...different! ;)
I don't tell many folks (for no particular reason) that I come from Luton, however, I'm hoping this will be +ev for the team! For this weekend, I consider you ALL guests in my home and will be treated accordingly. So if you need ANYTHING at all, (info, fried chicken, more beer) just give me a shout and I'll point you in the right direction! ;)
I haven't offered a lift mainly as I'm driving a roadster which is pretty crap in the luggage space department. :( I can take one person though if you you want to leave tonight and have a gym bag or something for your stuff.
I'll try to link up with everyone tonight. I'm hoping to hit the casino or maybe one of the bars in town...OR BOTH!!! lol
See you in Luton, guys...X
hi dan, what time are you planning on leaving? I am looking to go tonight and if I can grab that seat in the car that would be great. my number is 07930 204806 if you want to give me a call to arrange meeting etc... glad you know your way round aswell, always handy!! ryan
Space still free. Shop shuts after 6pm...
Is anyone going up Friday who has a spare seat in their car?
0 · January 23, 2013
I'm pretty sure Trev has Matt
Thanks Lenny, I'll give him a shout.
0 · January 24, 2013
i have spaces im leaving about 2 on friday to miss traffic
Hi Trevor, sorry for delay. Just seen this. Going to drive myself now, as managed to repair car (and not coming back until Monday which makes it easier if I drive). Thanks for offer though :-)
HELLO ALL - I'll be emailing this too to make sure everyone gets it/sees it. Apologies for the slowness on my part, combination of Christmas pissedness and then being ill.
Can EVERYONE please reply to either my email OR this post confirming that you are definitely playing. This is one event where a no-show or late-dropout would frankly be worthy of castration. I've already heard from Duffy, Lenny, Dan, and Rich, so I'll assume all of you guys are in (but please confirm anyway for completeness' sake). Can Cecilia, Ryan and Trev all please do the same ASAP!
Second - can everyone please tell me:(A) What t-shirt size you are(B) What nickname you want on the back. If you don't tell me, I'll think of ones that make you sound stupid so here's even more motivation to respond. :o)

Third - let's get the conversation going regarding who's driving, who might lake to share rooms, etc. I've already got a room at the esteemed Luton Travelodge for the princely sum of £16.50, I suggest everyone else tries to do the same, or if not any old hotel - matters not a jot which one but it would be good if we could all pile in together. I've no idea if that tip of an hotel has a bar but if it doesn't, we'll just create one in someone's room if we get sick of the casino after 10+ hours (which I certainly will).
PS. I've emailed everyone individually as I don't have everyone's email addresses. When everyone replies we can try to get a group thread going if we can't do so here for any reason. I'll be texting Cecilia/Ryan/Trev too to chase up.
hello there apologies for my late response, I am in Thailand diving at the moment so hopefully you can forgive me. I am 100% for the apat, I am and XL in Tshirt size and nickname of RYNO please would be great. I do have a car and also a camper van. car can take 4 at a right squeeze or camper 4-5 ( only 2 seatbelts though) let me know if these are any good.
looking forward to it!
Actually James please can I have L T-shirt.
Hi James, I'm def playing and I'll need a lift.
Duffy / Lenny, do you want to share a twin at the Travel Lodge? I'll book one up if you do!
Argh, must stop hitting return at the end of each sentence ... and a M t-shirt for me please. Nick: Sparkie. Looking forward to it!
Yeah I'm up for that cecillia :)
Cheers guys, keep the replies coming! Trev/Rich/Dan - T-shirt names/sizes please and I'll get the order in asap.
Cecilia - I can give you a lift... and anyone else who needs one though I'll be coming back on Sunday.
Duffy, I'm going to book it now but only for Sat night so hope you're happy coming back Sunday? We get the bargain saver price of £24 but that is non-refundable. Shout in the next hour if any of this not ok, otherwise I'll book.
Cheers for the lift James :)
That's fine cecilia :)) book away!Can I grab a lift with you too newmanator?
James - just sent you an email! Let me know if you don't get it!
We're all booked Duffy :)
Nice one chick, how much do i owe you or do we pay on arrival?
You owe me £12.50 but give it to me on 26th ... or the 18th, if you're playing that game at the BCSC? :)
nice one, cheers for sorting that out mate :)

Nice one Ryan... we need to be there for 1.30 (ONE THIRTY) on Saturday to dish out t-shirts, get our team mug shots sorted, etc. Cecilia, Duffy and Jack are coming with me, Dan/Ryan making their own way I believe, Trev going Friday with Lenny. I will be coming back Sunday night, assuming I'll be giving the same people a lift back.

Just realised this is three weeks away! :O Is everyone sorted for travel and accommodation?
0 · January 8, 2013
Nope! James has text to say he's going to be in touch though
I'm going to need a lift ....
Cool. Does anyone else need a lift or a place to stay?
Oops posted in the wrong place! Damn phone.
Apparently there is a hotel nearby where some of the other teams are staying. Is anyone coming back on Sunday?
Right - team selected as follows following consultation with several pints of Butcombe Gold and a working public interweb connection.
MeDuffatronimus PrimeCeciliaTrevorLennyRyanDan MyersRich Evans
Selection criteria have included various vacuous criteria including but not limited to the following: ability (as perceived by the High Council of Poker Standards appointed by Me), number of meetup games attended, any prior interest in the game for the benefit of our newer members.
Sincere apologies to those who expressed interest but didn't make the cut. I hate doing this - blame the bastards who voted me in!

In your own words James: Bastards...
0 · December 22, 2012
Hi James, Matt - anyone!? Was away over Christmas so only realised I was picked yesterday! Tried to give you a text to find out details and all. Who is best to contact and how? Rich
James Newman is voted in Captain, and will be selecting the team over the next few days. Good luck all, and watch this space!.
0 · December 20, 2012
Has a team been selected yet??
Hi Jack, no team has been seleted yet. But James N. is captain, as he is able to play now. He's going to select a team over the next few days. It'll be posted on this thread when he has.
Guys, I think I am going to step back from this one. I have done a number of the team events for meetup in the past and so i want to give those who havent done many or any at all in the past to take part. I also cant 100% commit to this given the timing of the event given my potentail need to be available for tiny babysitting duties...
Good luck to those who play for Meetup
Voting is closed. The results of the poll were:
7 – James Newman1 – Stuart Pillinger1 – Cecilia Sparke
I've asked James if it's likely he's going to be playing. If not, there's a tie between Stuart and Cecilia for captain.
So, they can either be joint-captains, or we can decide a way to pick between them (coin toss, number of meetup games played, or something else?).

Can someone (who is an APAT forum member) send a message to Leigh here: http://www.apat.com/forum/index... to register interest (you just need to send a quick message saying you'd like to register Bristol Meetup as a team - you don't need to give team members names yet).
If that link doesn't work, try: http://www.apat.com/f...
APAT have announced full details here: http://www.apat.com/forum/index...
I'm going to leave RSVPs open until Midnight Sunday, then arrange a vote to select our Team Captain. The Team captain will then select the team from all those who have RSVPd.
I'll leave RSVPs open until 24 hours after APAT announce the full details, then we can pick a captain and choose the team from those who've RSVPd.

2 · December 11, 2012

at the mo, I'm just getting a list of interested peeps. When we've a few more we'll pick a captain (maybe have a vote?), and they will choose the team. (I'm not playing myself, but will be there running the comp.)
