Hi,

If anyone from London/South East has a space in their car/van or wants to join me in my car let me know!

I'm going out on the 17th coming back on 21st. Nothing booked yet (apart from hotel) but would rather go by car as more space for games

I live in London but my car is in hertfordshire. Figure petrol/2 will be cheaper than flight+excess baggage

Hi Tom,

You could catch a train or a coach that would not restrict your baggage allowence.

Looked at trains but it's too expensive and a bit of a hassle. Coach I haven't, might look at it but would prefer to drive - I have a car just need a passenger to help share the costs

Thanks

Hi Tom

I think you're a bit too late to join our group for this year, but maybe keep in touch for future years. Our group of 16 includes 2 drivers who are car pooling this year, but they already have 4 in each. Several of us live in Hertfordshire, whilst others are driving up from the south and south west.

We block book rooms for the Wednesday to Saturday nights inclusive at the same hotel close to the Messe every year, so there's always a big group going.

If you have links in Hertfordshire, why not come and meet some of us at Hemel Games Club (see our weekly posts in this forum) on Tuesday evenings?

Good luck!

Thanks, if I go again I'll try and sort earlier - bit of a mix up which is why the late scramble

4 people in a car? Where is the space for games?!!

I think they're all relying on the fact that David and I are driving out a few days earlier (stopping in Bruges for a few nights), so might have some space for their overspill. Also Paul & Dave (from [geekurl=http://www.gameslore.com/]Games Lore[/geekurl]) will be taking a van across. We might have some bargaining power with them devil.

Only noticed after my first post, that this is your first Essen - I'm sure you'll love it and will be hooked for future years

I'm sorted now. Have some space in a car for games so I am flying. Looking forward to the experience
