I'm not part of that plan but I'll put your money in for you if Dan is after cash today.
I booked the "Henares" room at Brighton's best hotel (according to tripadvisor.com): Hotel Una.
That sounds posh but Henares is actually their box room and was nice and cheap! There are a couple of other cheapish single rooms too. If anyone wants to book "Quaile" with private bar and cinema I'll be happy to drop by ...
4 of the MK guys (where i used to play) who are Q'd found a place doing really good rates right by the venue (under 3 mins walk) - gave me the details, said i should get more Magic players to stay there too. Here's the website: http://grapevinewebsite.co.uk/seafront.html
Basically, i've not yet rung up to ask if they still have space, but assuming they have, it'll be £120/person for wed/thurs/fri/sat nights. I was after 3 other people because i know they do rooms for 4, but tbh the more of us we can get staying in the same place the better!
I'll chat to some of you later at the GPT, report back here later, and hopefully we'll have this booked up by Monday night.
Shout if you're interested!
(edit: have emailed them, will update if/when i get a reply)
I rang up and they had an 8-bed dorm and a 3-bed ensuite room going for (90/120) per person for the 4 nights.
Concerned by the logistics of arranging 7 other people and getting it paid for and still making rent, i've provisionally put my name down for the 3-bed room, and need to pay later tonight.
Millsy has already shotgunned one slot (and will pay me tomorrow, right James?), so we have one left, who wants in? I need the money asap, or might be able to arrange for you to pay your share straight to the hotel, not sure.
Note: We're both prone to being loud and drunk, and Gary and/or Rob will try and sleep on our floor at some point, if either of these things bother you... LOL.
I'm going on holiday the week before nationals, so I still need to figure out if I can make the thursday. Put me down as a provisional yes, but if you get someone who can provide a definite yes then i dont mind stepping down.
