    Date: 16th March - 19th March 2018 (Friday - Monday)
    Check in: 3pm on 16th.
    Check Out: 11am on 19th
    Where: Portland House, Matlock Bath - http://www.portlandhouse1870.co.uk
    Costs: £150 / per bed. (Based on £3.5k for the weekend, and 24 beds plus £100 booking fee it seems). Double rooms are double the cost. We have 4 Double Rooms, 8 Twin Rooms. All with en-suites. Total of 24 spaces.

    (Note, we currently do not have all spaces full! I have three spaces, (2 in a double room, 1 in a twin room), and if these don't get filled (And I am trying), then the price will vary as follows:
    1 Space Left - £156
    2 Spaces Left - £163
    3 Spaces Left - £171

    At this moment, I expect final costs to be £163

    Who is coming (so far)
    • Seb (Happy with any dates) - Double Room
    • Elliot Page (Prefer 16th March, earlier the better) - Twin Room
    • Andy Hanley (March / April) - Twin Room
    • Dan Rhodes (Prefer 16th March, earlier the better) - Twin Room
    • Rob Mallarkey - Twin Room
    • Tony (March 16th) - Twin Room
    • Cell (One day i'll work out name) (Also March 16) - Twin Room
    • Carl T (March 16th) - Twin Room
    • Rob Jessop (March 16th) - Twin Room
    • Gary S (Can't do March 16th or April 2nd) - But interested
    • Matt Crook (March 16th) - Double Room
    • Paul (March 16th) - Twin Room
    • Ross +1 - Double Room - This is to be confirmed. Potential dropout due to conflicting date.
    • Dan Barnett - Twin Room
    • Shaun - Twin Room
    • Dani - Twin Room
    • Shana +1 - Double Room
    • Gerry - Twin Room
    I am trying to interest the following:
    • Martin - 1 space in the Twin room
    • Sophie + James - Double room
    • Jeremy from AL - TBC

    Deposits
    I am still awaiting deposits for £40 from: Ross +1, Rob Mallarkey, Tony, Andy and Elliot, Dani, Shana +1

    Food and Drink
    Last year we ran a communal kitchen. We each paid £15 to provide the basics for breakfast, snacks and some lunch foods and a single evening meal. With eating out 2 nights in the evenings.

    At the moment, I propose to do this again as the feedback from the survey was, ok. The only thing which didn't really go well was the lack of communication over evening meals and such.

    If there are no objections, this will be the plan again. The actual costs will be requested during the weekend once they are known (As it depends where we buy from).

    Bedding Arrangement
    • Double Room - Seb (Taking 2 Spaces)
    • Double Room - Ross +1
    • Double Room - Matt C (Taking 2 Spaces)
    • Double Room - Vacant
    • Suggested Sleeping arrangements:
      • Rob / Dan R
      • Andy / Elliot
      • Tony / Carl T
      • Rob / Cell
      • Paul / Dan B
      • Shaun / Dani
      • Gerry / Vacant
      • Shana +1

    Hello, I am interested and would prefer an earlier weekend.
    16th march would be cool, for example.

    If it ends up in May then count me out for obvious reasons. March or early April should work okay though, so I'd definitely be up for it!

    Yup, count me in as always. The earlier the better for me too.

    Ninja/Tony here (yay for corrupt password manager databases and long dead email addresses... lessons learnt!). March date is ideal for me, but as the kids will be at School I’ll have to come down solo for this one.

    Portland House again would be amazing

    As for dates, I don't know but as this threads started I'm going to show it to my Building Manager tomorrow and ask if arrangements can be made if its a Saturday I'm in

    In other words. I'm 100% going to be at UK-A Stock

    (Edit, March 16th I'm listed as Not working on Saturday, but if they rotate Saturday I literally don't care)

    Request if we go for Portland House

    Would it be at all possible for me to have a room to myself?

    Preferably First Floor with en-suite Bathroom (Last year I was in the middle room near the stairs), This doesn't need to be a double bed, just a room to myself as I'm antisocial prefer to sleep alone

    I know this counts as two people and I'll have to pay double (£290)

    Edit: Bedroom last year was Bedroom 3 but could go with anything with 2x Singles or 1x Double. As long as it has en-suite Bathroom

    I can't do the 16th (or 2nd).
    --edit below---
    If I'm the only one being a blocker to the 16th then I'll have to skip this year (and just bring more fountain pens and ink to draw the innocent in next year muahahhah)

    If people want en-suites / own rooms (I certainly do for... reasons), then this is possible.

    March 16th would be ideal for me as its miles away from any school hols so I shouldn't have problems getting it off work. Do you still want me to see if I can dig up the email from them from this year? Might still have it...

    Have the email. And we have a discount if we go on the 16th March.

    Discount is about £1,000, so inclined to take it tbh.
