Check.

I have asked for room-rates to handle the nights from thursday on friday and sunday on monday too.... expecting most internationals to arrive before the weekend, and I think we can manage to set-up some tables for a friday evening session too.....

... but yeah, in essence the MAIN event will be on saturday and sunday. And it would be VERY good to (finally) meet in person.......    8)

Lex,
Date noted and sounds fantastic.  But work commitments in November may prevent my attendance, I fear.  Will know closer to the time.

Yeah no worries, I will keep posting updates over the next weeks when I have them. (Black) Ed will actually be in the UK and come over to BoZ, with enough people it always pays out considering to car-pool  B-)

A quick update on the event, the venue looks to be go. I have an option on rooms (sleeping), a price for dinner on saterday and we will have a big room on the 1st floor for gaming. I am working out the final details but included indicative pricing below. Accurate data to follow during the next days !

Rooms will be app 70 per night for single use and including breakfast and around 95 per night including breakfast for doubles (with limited rooms available at the venue itself, I do prefer to have people sharing where possible!

A buffet style dinner on saterday will be around 20 per person (and prices are in Euro, just to mention that !), we frequently eat at this place ourselves, food = good and pricing decent, so we will probably also bet them to serve food around lunch and to make sure we have late service in the gaming room for drinks.

Warmaster International Playtest weekend 1-3 november 2013
« Reply #35 on: July 17, 2013, 12:59:22 PM »
OK, all things are set in motion!

1st off, the venue I have got an option on is a  cozy little hotel/restaurant in the center of historical Bergen op Zoom. Cozy is the operative word, as they only have 5 rooms, so consider sharing a room (which will also cut-down on cost!). Rumour has it that this historical venue is haunted, so any undead or vampire count players could find themselves with unexpected assets.....  For those that visited Bergen op Zoom before (for a EuroGT event) and had a meal at the Mexican place..... this is next door on the small square near the Markiezenhof.

Roomrates:

single use, per night, including tourist tax and VAT:         €66,50
double use, per ROOM, including tourist tax and VAT:      €92,00

Food(s):

Breakfast, per person                                                        €9,95

We will have a saturdaynight buffet style dinner (and having eaten there several times now I can honestly say, food is good!, which of course will also be open to all players, so please register for that even if you are "attending" and not "residential"                                      €18,80

When I have a better grasp of numbers attending I will see if we actually break for lunch, or allow you lot to eat-and-play.

For those players that will not, or can not stay residential there is the option to "attend" the event, you will still need to register!  and tell us if you stay for the saterdaynight buffet! Attending players will pay a "table-fee" of €5 per day. The venue will be open to the general public, so those that wanna drop in and say hello, feel free to do so !

Should the rooms at vanEE fill up, I will scourge the town for other sleeping arrangements........

Registrations should go to lex.van.rooy@gmail.com, with the subject mentioning Warmaster Weekend. After registering I will contact individuals on (methods of) payment.

I will need registration as soon as possible!!!, to be able to book the option (and get a 10% discount that will flow back towards your actual cost!

First couple of registrations are coming in, the international mix at this moment

Dutch
Belgium
English
American

there was intresse from Poland... (keeping my fingers crossed an that one coming true!!), Germany, Denmark and Austria.

Remember that if I get the option fully filled out, actual pricing for rooms etc. will even drop a bit (or we arrange to have that discount as free booze......)

So check your agenda's and start planning !

I have been told in no uncertain terms that I am NOT allowed to attend a weekend in the Netherlands to play wargames....

I still think she is being totally unreasonable!   >:( :o

Well, I tend to just travel local for my games......  which means that I did mostly north-west european events, the UK and Austria, in addition to Dutch, Belgium, German and French venues.....

Transatlantic is ok, as long as it goes from my overall budget, and is not done more then once per 5 years......

What DOES help is to make it a family-trip, and make sure there is enough on the VISA to allow her to go to the SPA and/or go shopping during the two days of gaming.......   8)

no way I'll be able to make it this year, however if this is intended to be an annual event, I might be tempted to build a family holiday around it next year......

Tentative attendance for the Warmasterplaytest event...

3-5 Dutch, some of them local
1 or more Belgium players, although probably on day-passes
2-3 Brits, maybe a stray Canadian?
At least one Yankee, probably more ( and we might talk them into bringing over some stock).
1 German and 1 Austrian in Germany ( which I guess is similar to an Englishman in NewYork)

Although indicated they might come, allas, no great Danes.... 

On the wishlist... French and Spanish, Greek and maybe a stay Viking?

I will try to have a Webcam on for the people down-under that want to join some of the discussions!

Havevwe considered hosting it in America atbthe same time and having live feed to and from both places with maybe a skype or two setup and running so players could discuss events?

I can host it here in Texas but I think we'd need more notice. 

Thoughts?

Simultaneous would be a tad hard with the time-difference. But I already discussed setting up webcam/skype/hangout's during the event. that it in itself is doable.

As we aim to have rounds of games with particular rules alterations, and a bit of discussion after each round I will post a schedule for the event once we are a bit nearer to the date.
