LLorg London 2017

Since noöne else seems to be doing it, I'll bite.

  • What: LLorg Europe meetup
  • Where: London
  • When: 28th till 30th of July
  • What else: There are many potential activities on the list to do, including, but not limited to: meetup at a conference hall to organise things, visit some libraries to buy language learning books, a trip to landmarks and museums, play some werewolf games, hangout at a pub, play some language related games. And, of course, have fun! Depending on arrival and departure times we have about two days, which is a lot of time for a small gathering.
template totally not stolen from arthaey :-p

What we need to do now is make a list of who's in, determine the budget and go along with it. While it's still rather early, we shouldn't leave everything for the last moment, either.

Redundant list of participants for redundancy - see also second post:

Going unless stated otherwise:
  • rdearman
  • dampingwire
  • iversen
Going with various degrees of certainty:
  • Mama Pata
  • Spoonary
  • Brun Ugle
  • WalkingAlone13
  • Ingaræð
  • Zenmonkey
6±3 so far.

I cannot yet say 100% that I'm in, but I'm quite likely to join. When my study schedule is come closer to an end I will know, but I should have finished everything by then.

I am (provisionally in). I am hoping to work this summer so don't know exactly what my plan is... (But either way, money will be limited). Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Hmm, it may be tricky to get that weekend off work... I'll see what I can do though. :?

Oh and thanks for creating the thread, Vedun!

I'm in. Don't think we need a room unless it gets above 10 people. Up until then we can just meet in a pub!

I'd like to come, but it's far too early to be sure if I can. I'm still trying to figure out Bratislava.

Unless those days coincide with an as-yet-unbooked summer holiday, then I should be able to be there for one day at least.

Since this one is closer than the Portland one, is there an organising team? Where do people sign up?

I'm very happy to help organise, but definitely need to be someone's assistant, rather than a main organiser!
