It is a bit out in the sticks with 'interesting' roads (especially if you're on a motorbike :biggrin ) but you can get articulated lorries down most of them and Google has no excuse for not knowing where Alton Towers is :soap

 

Edit - just realised that you're probs on public transport(?) - don't think that there's any rail links.

Ah so not accessible for some due to public transport, that narrows down the search so. Feel free to look on Airbnb yourself gents and give me shout if you find something decent.

Some of us have cars, I'm sure (even if it takes repeat runs) we can get everyone there.

It's half-way between Derby and Stoke, Uttoxeter is the nearest train station, but the former two aren't that far.

I say go for it.

Also, I've had an idea for a Klan trait for Dim/Grot Rebels (because I don't want him sitting around doing nothing while we play).

Righteous Indignation:
For any model that is removed from play during a phase and/or sub-phase, that model may make one attack at the end of that phase/sub-phase.
This attack may be made with any weapon and any weapon with a ranged profile gains unlimited range and does not suffer any modifiers to hit.

Any idea of dates? April is terrible for me as I'm committed most weekends that month, but I'd love to get over if I can.

Hey dude, nice to hear from you again (was afraid we scared you off last time!).

The current idea is the last weekend in April (26-29). But if that's not good we could shift it forward a week.

Finalising a date would be good, especially if we are using an Airbnb. Probably best to have that sorted before Crimbo before settling on a location.

Not at all, I had a great time, I've just been a bit over committed especially at weekends over the last year. I'd love to meet up with you all again, but I definitely don't want people to change plans on my account. I'll do what I can to fit in with what you guys decide.

I'd agree with DJ; lets go for it.  We could easily get people from the station to Alton. It seems to me on Hight Street ST10 4AQ. I'd be happy with that or if not the Quorn suggestion. 26th-29th April works too. I don't necessarily need to stay overnight as its that close but if it helps with finances I could do. As Cookie can call in to my house in Lichfield on the way we can get a load of scenery etc up there too.

The location that Skar posted is booked up at the moment for the first weekend of May (because Bank Holiday), but the weekend after (10-13/05/19) is actually cheaper by about 40 quid (£933 vs £894).

My car will be loaded up when I arrive, but I can get my stuff out to fit others after that.

So what do people think?
26-29 of April or 10-13 of May?

I vote 26th-29th in the old castle inn. 40 quid ain't going to break the bank in my eyes.

I can do 26th-29th April but not 10th-13th May. I've got to work over the May weekend.
