    Right to remove all the previous confusion (and to create a place for some new confusion) this is the thread for the Cardiff meet to which Bristolians are warmly invited (seeing as it was their idea I suppose it's only fair).

    We could have it in September but it looks like we'll get more people if its in October.
    The best date in October would appear to be the 27th October which hopefully gives plenty of time to find a venue that would be willing to host a full blown 'Offline'.

    This is the weekend before Halloween though.
    Pros:
    Cardiff should be very lively and interesting with lots of people in fancy dress.
    City are playing at home in the afternoon
    Plenty of time to plan event

    Cons:
    People might get invited to friend's Halloween parties and pull out.
    End of the month skint syndrome.
    Pubs might not want Offline during one of their busiest weekends.
    Finding somewhere where we can all sit down together might be hard.

    The other suggested date is the 6th October.

    Pros:
    We won’t have to wait as long
    No seasonal event clashes
    City playing at home
    Not long after pay day

    Cons:
    I can’t think of any.

    So forget September.
    October is where it is now at. Vote to say which dates you can make.

    What help do you need to get an Offline set up?

    Are there any comedians that we might be able to blag to come do you think?

    well, as stated above Cardiff are playing at home on both dates so you should be sorted :)

    I guess we'd need to know what kind of venues we can blag and then work from there. Ideally we'd want free entry, no poncey 'bottles only' bar policies, a stage and PA, beers for the DJs and some sort of percentage at the bar to cover a few expenses if possible (but not essential). Any ideas for venues?

    yeah I was pleased with it :)

    Fatnek's probably the best man to talk to about venues.

    Sounds good. Upstairs at Dempseys or the Welsh Clwb - choice of 3 floors?
     
  12. Gromit

    Both charge. I know a girl from Wonderbrass and they played Dempseys last week £2-£3 cover charge depending on what time you arrived.

    We don't have enough welsh speakers for the welsh club. They occasionally turn away english speakers on Saturdays.

    I know an out of town venue but they go for bands and would recoil in horror at decks.

    I'm at a bit of a loss to think of somewhere right now.

    Callaghan's?

    Maybe. I'm also wondering about The Wharf.

    Seconded - Dempseys is fine but the fact that the main pub is downstairs and the events are upstairs sucks. All on one level in Callaghans, and as I was leaving Cardiff it was kind of becoming a case of 'Let's just go to Callaghans - something decent will be on'.

    Now you're talking. Dunno what the passing trade is like, but if there's enough of us it should be great.

    I love the millers.

    that's where i wanted to launch 'dirty diff' init! :D :oops:

    the back room is a nice enough (not too ambitious) size for the 10-20 (max) urbs we'd have turning up as well ;)

    Depending on the venue, I can't see any reason why we couldn't drum up a bit of press for this so long as we get enough lead-up time.
