Elite Community Meet 2018 – Reading
In the main hall we had Oculus Rift and Vive virtual reality experiences. There were also a number of commanders own gaming stations with Elite:Dangerous and other games to play. There were many other social games to try including games like Zombicide, Cards Against Humanity. One of our commanders even bought his own home built simulation chair to demonstrate what can be achieved.
We had our Artemis Starship Bridge simulator were teams competed for the honour of the highest score including some very entertaining refreshment fueled sessions later in the evening.
As always we supported our two chosen charities at the event Special Effect and Hearing Dogs. Surplus funds following the event were divided up equally and donated to the two charities.

EliteMeet 2017 – Bristol
In the main hall we had Oculus Rift (CV1’s) and Vive virtual reality experiences for you to try out. There was also a number of commanders own gaming stations with Elite:Dangerous and other games for attendees to try out. To help commanders break the ice there were many other social games to try including modern card and board games for you to enjoy and a bar where people could just sit and chat with other commanders over lunch or a beer.
We also had a starship bridge set up using Artemis where teams of commanders vied to be victorious and obtain the title of best multi crew.
Our two chosen charities at this event Special Effect and Hearing Dogs both received over £1,000 raised by the commanders attending the event. This was through surplus attendance funds and one the the Elite Dangerous communities infamous raffles. Check out our About Page for more information on and links to these charities.
