Following on from the enormous success (and bar bill) of the Launch Party after-party we are reviving EliteMeet to try and keep the spirit of the party alive. If you weren’t at the after-party then you missed out on a huge amount of fun and chat and booze (and pizza before it ran out)!
EliteMeet first happened a couple of years ago as an informal gathering of Elite Dangerous fans. The thinking about reviving EliteMeet is that there is a large gap between the two main Elite Dangerous related events (FantastiCon in October and LaveCon in July) and some of us can’t bear the thought of nine months without a get-together so the idea of reviving EliteMeet came about. We see EliteMeet more as a gathering than a ‘Con’ and a chance to socialise in the main as well as kicking the Elite Dangerous events year off in a relaxed style. There may also be a chance to bring gaming kit along (please contact the organisers first via this thread as there will be limited room for kit) and also a chance to participate in sessions of Selezen’s excellent Elite Encounters RPG! We may even have a surprise guest or two (no, not me… that’s no surprise at all!)
Longer term we see EliteMeet happening every Spring but in a different location around the country each year to give people from all parts to attend at some point or another. While LaveCon and FantastiCon are more firmly located in the Elite Dangerous Galactic core EliteMeet will be the wandering star
So, if you would like to attend; clear your diary for Saturday 28th March from 10am onwards and make your way to this year’s venue which is in Birmingham, a few minutes from Acocks Green station, at the Best Western Westley Hotel. Tickets are £10 to cover the cost of the venue with any surplus going towards loot, teas/coffees or perhaps the bar. The hotel have also graciously offered 10% off room prices for people attending.
