Just mentioned this possibility to Bryan and his reply was along the lines of "well, we did a second one last year (Blog-con) so why not?" So I guess if there's enough interest to support it and someone's willing to do the organisation then we may be able to work something out...

A none summer/August date may also be cheaper! Perhaps we should do a one dayer as a test? There is an Oldhammer event at slayer in notts in October too, hmmm!

A one dayer would be a problem for those without personal transport and/or a long distance to travel, unless travelling the day before and after which would triple the cost. In over words a 1 dayer is useless for me hehehe.

I have to agree with Chico on this one; Notts is so far for my cabal and I that it really has to be a couple of days at least to justify the transport arrangements etc. Obviously I can only speak for myself...and my servitors....

Two days is the way to go, whether we have one summer BOYL or both a summer and a winter one. You gotta make the journey and the hotel worthwhile, and have time to play/socialise in between the journeys, whether or not that journey is around the world or down the road.

Multiple shows were discussed last year. The opinion then was that there should be one BIG main one that everyone tries to get to and smaller regional meet ups! Perhaps we should be exploring this...

Yeah, regional meet ups is just as good. Forgot about that. (Now goes off to see what the YOBS thread says).

I appreciate I'm biased because I'm only an hour's drive from Foundry, but multiple meets per year at Foundry - not necessarily under the banner of "BOYL" - would be ace! :mrgreen:

I think we should have a BOYL event in Essex, it'll be TOWIE (for the non UK living forum members, if you google TOWIE be warned) meets Oldhammer.

I'd like to tentatively put forward for Sunday morning=
The Wacky Races Massacre presents: DEATHRACE 40,000.

At this early stage, it's my intention to come and run it myself :D obviously a lot can happen in a year, but I will be playtesting thoroughly here down under with my fellow convict street racers and if all else fails I will provide a comprehensive set of resources if i cant make it and someone else wants to take over.

The concept will be an actual auto race similar to the newer version of the film Deathrace. Contestants will race laps, activate weapons and defence systems as they go and battle for the victory!

It's obviously early days but if folks who are interested want to start thinking about their vehicles, i can tell you that there wont be gangs as such, just drivers and their support person, who can activate defence systems and clear jams etc. Ideally the support person is an unfeasibly hot girl but you guys can figure that part out ;)
