Well cool, maybe they meant other 10th Planet DW events. Although someone did say to me the last BW
I think this event unlike others is very much Derek's event with help from Jason and Mark, rather than the other way round with the Hub and such. This means its run basically the same but with a few differences, and so those of us with experience at other events had differences to deal with.
Not a negative thing at all, Derek ran a great event this weekend with the crew being awesome as always (really should get to know all your names, I come to so many events I feel bad that I cant say hi) but I know a lot of us over the weekend were a bit 'huh? oh, thats how it works' so we had to adapt quickly lol
I too would love it to be in Northampton. Those who havnt been, trust us its a great hotel for the event. Big enough to run a con, but small enough for us attendees to be literally the only people staying there, meaning we basically get the run of the place. Not all spread out like he Hilton, not expensive like the Hilton (normal pub food at normal pub prices, with the town centre literally 3 minutes walk round the corner)
Rooms are great, staff are used to these events, talks are set out better (video screens of the talk, higher stage so more people can see), cheaper hotel rooms. And the parties are great (at least with the other events, the attendance of this one made the parties seem smaller)
