Eastercon: I will be there; will you?

I decided soon after moving to Belgium that the only reason to fly rather than take Eurostar to London would be to attend an event which was actually taking place at one of the airports. But as it happens, Olympus 2012, this year's British national science fiction Easter convention, is taking place at the Heathrow Radisson. So I will fly from Brussels, possibly the first time I have ever done that route by plane other than to make onward flight connections.

Wiill you be there too?

Yes, as always.

It will be good to see you.

What *is* it about skiffy and the non-Euclidean Heathrow Radisson?
Feb. 11th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
they haven't put the room rates up in 4 years, mainly.

Was intending to; that may change.
Feb. 11th, 2012 06:45 pm (UTC)
Yes - I'll be there with partner who didn't know he liked going to cons! It's going to be great! Inga (x-pshtaku)

I will! And, strangely enough, I'll be taking the train from Brussels.

Well, from Amsterdam, actually, but I'll change trains in your city.

I'll be driving. From Edinburgh. Griefrow: we hates it.
Feb. 11th, 2012 06:59 pm (UTC)
Yes, must remember to book.
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:11 am (UTC)
And must remember to ask you how to do this without a car.

Yes! Looking forward to seeing you.
Feb. 11th, 2012 10:14 pm (UTC)
Me too, obviously.
Feb. 11th, 2012 07:27 pm (UTC)
Should be, but I'm not sure whether I'll do the whole con or just one day. Either way I won't be staying in the hotel.
Feb. 11th, 2012 07:49 pm (UTC)
I am going. It will be my first.
Feb. 11th, 2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
Will be there!

Would you be interested in taking part in programming?
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
I'll forward you his programming form... :)
Feb. 11th, 2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
I'll be there! We seem to have missed each other in the past (I've found out you were there afterwards) so we'll have to look out for each other!
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:01 pm (UTC)
I got an unexpected royalty check and am now rashly considering it.
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:43 pm (UTC)

(Thinks furiously.)

I can't think of a setup which makes it sensible for us to pick you up from and return you to Stansted, since we're booked into Heathrow for Thursday through to Tuesday and any possible flight cost difference would be eaten by the extra nights in hotels, but if it were to happen, we'd be very happy to do so.

We'd love to see you either way.
Feb. 11th, 2012 09:24 pm (UTC)
I'll be there with attimes_bracing, busy getting people to vote for Bradford for 2013 :-)
Feb. 12th, 2012 12:10 am (UTC)
Yes, but staying off-site to save £200.
Feb. 12th, 2012 04:52 am (UTC)
Yes, I think this'll be my 21st successive Eastercon, except for Blackpool the year I broke my leg...
