Little further to travel for me, but don't mind as Telford has been good the past few times I have been there, so it will be interesting to try out somewhere different

33 miles from home but happily only 20 miles from work which means if the summer one is there I can go straight from work on the thursday :D

The video they showed at i50 last night looked pretty good, but the devil is in the detail which we dont have yet.

One piece of news - there will be a charge for camping in the future.

There is however air con in all the rooms/halls apparently, a fixed proper bar & apparently better food too :)

Will update more after Wizzo's Q+A this evening about it.

My concern is hotel space.

There looks to be less on-site, are there others within walking distance.

No power on earth would get me to camp!

From looking at google maps, there doesn't seem to be anything within walking distance.

Also Casino on site :shock: I'm not quite sure if this is a good or a bad thing lol I might be able to rope them in for the charity game in summer (Pending)

Fine with me, had to walk to and from my hotel during spring LAN this year when we had all that snow so that will be a piece of cake.

Hotel rooms are going to be the biggest problem. MP have booked all the 121 on site I hear already, some of which will be used by staff, the rest will be exhibitioners and whatevers left I imagine will be whacked with a large surcharge. Other hotels are quite some way away.

It's quite nice that i51 is being run there before the big one, gives them a chance to sort thing like that^ out. (or not, in which case people will know to make other plans)

It doesn't surprise me MP managed to book those 121 on site rooms but at the same time that really is such a small amount with the 2k+ people attending during summer LAN, the camping space isn't big enough for that many people either as far as I seen... And since they advertised with both I am curious what they will be doing with i52 since i51 is indeed be a test run as Kaelan mentioned.
