...registration is now open.

In a shocking display of efficiency, they seem to have actually opened registrations bang on time at 7pm.

aaaaaaand they've sold out. Or at least gone to waiting list, there may be a bunch of missed payments or cancellations in the next few days.

I got in, and so did Rob. Who else?
Oh, did I say that out loud?

Apparently the onsite double rooms have already sold out, and - to quote someone on faceache - the single rooms "look like prison cells".

Hunting for a decent hotel nearby might be this afternoon's project... ;)

Having been in the single ensuites before they're basically just a.n. other university block built to a standard plan. Bit bare next to a hotel, but still perfectly serviceable for what I need. Free WiFi this year is a nice touch.

I know for a fact that Minotaur has used their single ensuite rooms at previous cons without more than average complaint.

So where's everyone planning to stay?

This place (https://www.bestwestern.co.uk/hotels/be ... club-83934) seems to be 4 miles/10 minutes along the A45 from Warwick Arts Centre. Has pool, spa, sauna and steam room :-)

£62.10 per night, which is considerably cheaper than the Premier Inn at the moment...

If anyone didn't get in first time around, there's a note on their Faceache page that capacity has increased to 1250, so might be worth checking again.

Okay, so this is happening soon-ish.

Are we bringing radios? If so, I presume we're on the usual 6/32?

On that note, does anyone want a 'modified' Intek 5050? Having upgraded, I appear to have one going spare...

I suppose I should actually, you know, charge my radio...
