And so, announcing the worst kept secret in history.

Uberpoi will almost certainly be held on the weekend of the 16th of July.

Teachers will be confirmed in the next few weeks. but don't you worry, they're going to be DAMN good.

price will be 45.
why the increase you ask?

because the uberstaff teachers were paid a very small amount, certainly not enough for the time they put in. and we would like to pay people a reasonable amount for their work. 45 is still very cheap when compared to most weekends of this type (approx 40 per day is the usual rate).

Accomodation will be fun to sort out, but i'm going to try to find a cheap location for all.

i am away in bristol for the next week, so will not keep you up to date until after i get back.

*invites excitement*

much love

Took the liberty of adding Ms Leaf and Sparky to the list, as Holly's away to the Lake District with her folks and Sparks doesn't post.

Hi Birgit. Thanks for putting Holly and I up. thankx I know that Beth asked about the extra space that you've got, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd give that space to Sparky and keep the West of Scotland contingent together (sorry, Beth). I shall PM you shortly.

I'M CHANGING THE NAME OF THIS EVENT FROM

"UBERPOI"
to
"SLUMBERPOI" since it's obviously a glorified slumber party

My theory is that a xenovore is like a cannibal who leaves his own tribe alone but eats everyone else. However, I may be wrong.

Gav, let me know your train times so I can pick you up. Should be done with work at 5 so will be available from something like 6 on Friday. If you arrive earlier I'll make Sunbird and Jeff pick you up smile

Detritivore! ubblol

I think cannibal tribes did tend to leave members of their own tribe alone, but ate members of rival tribes as a kind of ceremonial thing. Or I could be wrong...

I'll be working till 5 as well, so we should be arriving sometime about 6:30 - 7:00. I'll try and get round to checking the train/bus times and let you know more precisely.

*disclaimer*
uberpoi approaches and i start to get anxious.
if, for any reason over the weekend i am short with anyone, its cause i don't like being the only person who knows whats going on for everyone - being dad. i will try to be as relaxed and chilled as possible, but i think that'll come about 4pm on sunday. is ok?

Do you have the address for this Nicol Edwards place please? We'l be arriving in Ed at around 5-6ish so should have plenty of time to get there. Do you know how far from Kat's it is? Will George be able to walk the distance (ie not to far with belly full of mini-me) or should we just get a cab?

Dunc, the pub is on Niddry Street.

I live just 5 minutes from Kat's house, so we can all go together if you want. It should be about a 15 minute walk from my place, and nearly all of it downhill. There's lots of buses going in that direction, too, if you and George would prefer that, just pm me and we'll get you there smile
