biggrinPLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL KEEP UPDATING THIS PAGE AS MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE biggrin



For EJC Ireland 2006, we have secured the use of the largest indoor

hall in Ireland, with plenty of fields for tents, camping and fun, all

on the same site. We realise that the dates are significantly earlier

than many of you were expecting, but if we held the EJC in August, as

in previous years, we would be unable to use a site of this quality.

Our priority is to deliver a great convention, and that is what we are

concentrating on doing!



Now added to the website :

Travel Information

Photos of the hall

Accommodation Options



Forums now added - arrange lifts to Millstreet, and chat about the EJC here!





Please direct any questions or comments to info@ejc2006.net



We look forward to seeing you all here!



Sln,



Helen

Posted:I'm about to book ferry tickets from Swansea to Cork. There is only one a day so I have no choices about times of departure and arrival ubblol

I'm going to book the 8th (saturday) 11pm boat that gets me to Cork at 9am on the Sunday.

If I book a ferry from Cork to Swansea on the 17th (monday) is there anywhere I can stay on the sunday night in Cork near the ferry terminal as the ferry leaves at 9am?

What is public transport to and from the ferry port like as I'll be on foot?

Anyone care to join me for 10 hours each way of sea sickness? ubblol

Posted:Ok you lovely spinners - i have a challenge for you:
We need a poi game at the EJC. A good one smile

My suggestion is water balloons in either fish nets or those net things you put laundry detergent tablets in, and then you play gladiator style - trying to burst everyone else's balloons, but protect yours (while still spinning). But we need to road-test this, as i haven't tried it yet to see if it works - anyone having a spinning meet that they'd like to turn into a water fight anytime soon?

Any other ideas? Jugglers have all the fun at the games. It's time we joined them properly.

But it does involve putting poi slightly down your pants a bit ubblol redface

I'll be on the same flight as Simian, Bovrilmonkey, and all the rest going on that flight. I'm not sure if I've met all of the people going on that flight yet (I recognise faces better than names).

I'm already looking forward to the whole trip!
(ok, ok, I've been looking forward to it for at least a month now, but who's counting wink )
and we get a full moon, too? it's almost surreal biggrin
