It's time to start planning the annual UK-based mafia event that is EASTERMEET!

Since last year we missed booking our favourite and most-convenient location, and since Porochaz's workplace has already asked him to submit leave requests through to next April, we're getting the jump on things.

When: Friday 12 - Friday 19 April 2019
Where: A central-England HQ in the Midlands (PM me if you're looking at travel and want the address)
What: A week-long extravaganza of mafia, board games, party games, murder mystery games, outdoor games, escape games, and maybe some other stuff
Cost: Expected to be between £100 - £150 per person for the week

Interested/going:
Porochaz
Fenchurch
CES
CDB
Patrick
Bellaphant
Klick
Nexus
Davsto
randomidget
Primate
Shanba
wgeurts?
Sudo-Nym?
inspiratieloos?
xReckonerx?
Elmo
Xtoxm?

Out but we love you:

Newcomers are very welcome - if you have any questions just ask!

Dates are good, it's entirely a question of money and travel logistics when I cannot drive and will be a student

I'd love to go, but I'm not convinced that my finances will work out. If I can go, I will, but I'll have to let you know down the line.
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

I'm interested (obviously), but well...

Brexit is a thing and we have no idea how much chaos it's going to be exactly less than month after it happens.

Well... You guys could always come here, there'll probably be food. OTOH customs will probably be just as much a clusterfuck UK->EU->UK as EU->UK->EU.

But more seriously, how much is arranged already and might it be an idea to move to either before Brexit or to some time later when there's less risk of the UK being in complete chaos?

inspi - I'm afraid we're already booked for these dates... there wasn't a lot of flexibility as some people already have their holiday time used up until April, and later in the year clashes with exams and costs quite a bit more.

Obviously I have no idea what next April holds, and it's unfortunate it being so soon after... but I would hope it's not going to suddenly become hard for you to simply visit the UK. (I'm more concerned about stuff like CES being able to live here! :() But there are many countries outside the EU that it's still pretty straightforward to travel to. CES reckons ferries might be less prepared as they don't receive much non-EU traffic at the moment, but if you're flying in (Birmingham and East Midlands are both convenient for us to collect from), it might just mean going through a different gate at the other end...

Davsto - assuming you can get to the nearest train station, I'd give you a lift from there for sure!

on the plus side: if it DOES cause a problem, you could probably earn millions selling the rights to the story "Brexit stymies mafia meetup!" to the daily mail

You'd probably be chucked back over here, so you'd be fine!

Which direction are you coming from? As Im sure we would be happy to collect you. We usually get a group cab/Fenchurch to take us from the station anyway.
