Default AG Meet - Hastings - Saturday 26 May

As promised, this is the follow-up to my suggestion that a AG forum meet-up is held in Hastings, a town I know quite well.

Basic Hastings Tourist Information

Proposed activities include a bespoke guided tour of the historic old town, crazy golf, exploration of the smuggler's caves or a look round the castle. Also looking at having a meal in the late afternoon as at the Amsterdam meet.

How to get there

  • By Rail - Rail lines come into Hastings from London Charing Cross in the North, Brighton in the West and Ashford in the East. Ashford International has a Eurostar stop at it so anyone coming across from the continent by that route has a relatively easy connection through.
  • By Air - Gatwick is on a direct rail line to Hastings.
  • By Road - Various routes in. Probably best to PM me if you want more specific instructions.
  • By Narwhal - Nice shallow beach to land your narwhal on so, as long as you don't have a particularly deep-hulled narwhal, you should be able to coast in nicely. North side of the English Channel, about a quarter of the way along from the East end.
I have various details for accommodation ranging from small B & B's to swankier hotels. If people prefer I can post a few details of various places here or you can PM me for a more personalised service.

There is a local place that hires out wheeled transport for individuals where required. I promise that I won't push anyone under a tram this time (we don't have trams in Hastings any more so it is an easy promise to keep )

I'm suggesting toward the end of May, as I believe at least one member of the forums is already proposing to be in the UK around that time.

Over to you lot for thoughts, suggestions and queries.

Do we need eye protection against those damn Normans?

Sounds like a great idea! Hastings isn't the (other) end of the world, so I could try to arrange something. Can't promise anything, but I'll certainly keep my eye on this thread.

I just asked my dear (who is finally back from the hospital after having his tonsils removed last Thursday ^_^) if he might want to come along, and he said it would be nice, seeing as we could also visit my sister and see a bit of England.

Of course, I can't promise anything yet. I have to see how things are with our studies, as in May the new semestre has already started. Also, at the end of May next year is also Pentecost, which is always the time when the WGT is in Leipzig - though I'd be willing to skip that this year, to see the forum family again. So the main thing I'd have to see is how the University timetables will be then.

Still, I am confident that I will somehow manage it.

Well, I wonder who that forum member proposing to be there at the end of May is...could it be me?

Oh man, would love to. Hastings is definitely one of the places I really want to see, and as long as it is between May 20-June 3rd, I'll be there, and Louie as well.

I really can't wait to meet some of my forum family, and it'll probably be one of the only times Louie and I will be able to. Can't wait to see people there. Thanks for planning, Step!

Ah, once again, wish I could be there, but alas, money is tight (at first I wrote "money is tights", which could've explained a lot).

And I just today read that Olafur Eliasson will be doing something (might even be a full-on exhibition) for the London Olympics. Though, I'm not sure if it's there yet at that time, it would've been another thing to visit on the way...

But unless hit an unforeseen cash flow, I highly doubt I can make it. Plus, there's also another trip I'd like to make

I'd be very interested in going to this.
Additionally, there's a chance - albeit a very small one - that I could make it!

It's worth it just to see Hammie in the flesh . I'm there if Pain Boy keeps behaving like he is now. I hope I won't need a wheelchair this time but thank you very much for considering it Step!

I also want to make that trip. I fear May 2012 is going to be an expensive month.

Can we fix a date soon? The earlier we book the hotels the cheaper they are .

Sure, as long as it's within that time period. What do you think, Step?

I'm going to stay at a B&B, if they have one. I'm hoping to stay in all B&Bs during my trip. <3

B&B are nice. I had one in Looe this summer. It's cosier than a hotel and about as expensive.

I too would like to decide on a date. If I'm lucky I can get a flight really cheap.
I intend to stay at a B&B as well. I love B&Bs!

I'll go by car and boat. Cheaper than flying.

How does 26th May sound? It's a Saturday, so less of an issue for people to take time off work, and it is in the middle of a certain time-frame.

Hastings has B & B's. We are a seaside town after all.

Sounds good for me. It'll give me some time to get adjusted over there.

(I'm a bit nervous about meeting everyone...)

You don't have to be nervous. Just say something like "O it's just like in Dreamfall when..." and everybody will start talking adventure games.
