Right guys me and Gavbon are going to organize a bench meet for us all on the 27th and 28th of Feb next year. This is just a heads up in advanced for you to maybe get some time booked off work, get train tickets booked etc etc. Full details will be posted as soon as we can finalise some details with costs etc.

The event will be hosted at the portal in Sheffield which is a lan venue with great internet connectivity for live streaming and also plenty of electrical connectors for us all to have our rigs set up there. They also have their own tuck shop their if anyone gets a little peckish and I believe that we are allowed to take our own alcohol to the venue which makes it a little cheaper than buying from behind the bar.

Basic details are as follows,

Weekend long benching

1000L of LN2

bring your own gear benching + a few spares for people on site

++++ A competition at the weekend for those who are interested. - More details on this to come in the future when I have planned this one out.

Further details available here : http://x.hwbot.org/event/uk-bench-meet- ... 26th-28th/

Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/thebigfreezeuk/

Easiest way to pay : PayPal events@theportalsheffield.co.uk Please put in the message box who you are (real name and online name) so we can figure out who's paid etc

As already discussed on skype I will try to come this time now when its announced very early.

I hope the swedes would come aswell as flying within Europe can be very cheap.

But if I come I will need to loan some stuff from any of you guys, that means monitor atleast and maybe a good psu, aswell as mouse and keyboard maybe.

What would be the unit cost of LN2 be Lewis?

Just LN2 costs yeah, we're going to try and get some sponsors on board to help with equiptment and hopefully costs a little. But of course the more people that come = lower costs for all, more scores to be had, more competition and most importantly, more drunk people to talk absolute crap to :D

Can we make a list of those wanting to come (Lewis can updated the OP)? If you are interested or intending to come, just make it super clear.

Just need to work out numbers etc, helps work out other things ;)

I'm interested, but don't know if I will be able to go. And as Luumi said, it will be a problem to bring stuff on a plane.

If any of our overseas friends are wanting to attend, you are more than welcome to ship parcel to mine beforehand and i will bring it, i can also get your package back to the courier for its delivery back home.

Understandable mate, not trying to tread on yours or Dag's toes; I absolutely love and respect the both of you with my heart and soul! Just want to kick start the benching scene in the UK, Team MLG/Team GB are cornerstones of it :)

The entire point of TGB was getting britain benching, you're carrying that ethos on which is just what we wanted, more people getting into it and pushing benching forward in the UK. You have our blessing mate :D
