However, as the interest for an event seems quite high, and I for one would love an EB gathering, I would like to the event to still take place.
The original date will remain (as long as it does not cause too many difficulties). So it will be Friday 28th April - Sunday 30th.
I cannot plan the whole weekends events as of yet, but we could begin to draft a plan.
Friday - People's arrivals will be staggered slightly so I propose we find somewhere easy to meet (perhaps the airport or somewhere in Windsor. People will want to drop off their luggage so we can go to the accomodation (see below) and settle in. There probably won't be long on Friday to go to the park so maybe we could go for a meal, or wander around Windsor's other attractions?
Saturday - Legoland?? A whole day of shopping, looking at, touching, riding our favourite brick? Any other ideas are welcome.
Sunday - Another half day in the park (we could go for a 2 day pass?) Do what we didnt do on Saturday or want to do again. Sunday evening we will all depart I guess.
We still need some more official plans but hopefully this guideline will be enough for now. I will update this post with any updates there are on the event.
Accomodation - I have contacted a B&B which is about 1 mile from the park. They have the following rooms available for the weekend of our event.
1 x Family room, 4 separate beds with ensuite
£90.00 per night (£22.50 per person)1 x Family room, 3 separate beds and private bathroom
£80.00 per night (£27 per person)2 x Double room with a double bed in each and ensuite
£65.00 per night per room (£32.50 per person)1 x Twin room with 2 separate beds and ensuite
£70.00 per night (£35 per person)
This comes to a total of 13 places, so if any more than 13 people come we can enquire about sharing rooms or getting an extra room. If we don't reach 13 people we can always cancel a room as we don't pay until departure. When we have a final figure of eventee's we can work out who will share rooms. I assume that the double room has a double bed so this can be for the couples? Apo and Aredhel? Hobbes and partner?
Here is the address for anyone who wants it:
St. Leonards Road
And the website: http://www.parkfarm.com/
(with a useful map..)
Check in time is from 12 noon onwards. So maybe around 12 would be a good time to meet? Then we got half a day to go around Windsor? Check out time on Sunday is 10am, so we will have to find somewhere to drop off our bags, could be somewhere in Legoland (I will check on this). Of course, those staying till Monday could allow their room as a bag storage for Sunday? TT?
Tickets - If we stay at Park Farm B&B (above) we can get a 2 day pass at a reduced price of £33 (instead of £57). Any comments on this? Should we go for the 2 day pass?
(I will start a fresh list as the one in the older topic might have to change as people might not be able to come anymore)
Feel free to comment and suggest any ideas. I am sorry that this is a bit late and my absence hasn't helped, but hopefully many people will come and it will be great!
