Writercon UK 2019 Sign-up Post!!

For those who prefer to use Dreamwidth, there is also a sign-up post here.

Dates:
Friday 13th September to Sunday 15th September

Venue:
Ramada Hotel, The Butts, Coventry, CV1 3GG

Membership Cost: £49.
This covers room hire, refreshments (including tea, coffee, biscuits and cake!) during breaks on Saturday and on Sunday morning, a private room for the Saturday evening buffet (but not the cost of the buffet itself, nor of other meals) and a GOODY BAG!

Programme:
Friday evening: Introductions, quiz, goody bags and socialising.
Saturday: A full day of talks, workshops and a craft session, followed by more socialising and the buffet.
Sunday morning: Fun, the AGM, the raffle, even more socialising... and goodbyes :-(

Accommodation:
Members are responsible for booking their own accommodation. We have arranged a special rate, so do mention that you're attending the Writercon event. The price is £70 per night for a single room and £80 for a double, and includes a breakfast buffet (where you can choose anything from a full English breakfast to fruit and yogurt). Car parking is free as a special favour to us. The Ramada has asked us to point out that September is a particularly busy month, and once the rooms are gone they're gone, so please reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.

As usual, there will be optional alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, and an optional Friday evening trip to the Lebanese restaurant, Aqua.

Signing up

PLEASE SIGN UP BEFORE 10th AUGUST.

At £49 per person, we need 16 people to ensure that we can pay for the venue and refreshments (plus wine and goody bags). Should we have to cancel, the Ramada will charge us a cancellation fee, and if we leave it till less than 30 days before the event, it will more than wipe out Writercon UK's finances, so we have to have 16 people signed up before 10th August or Writercon UK 2019 cannot go ahead!


To sign up, please comment on this post by copying and pasting the template below and answering the questions. The comments are screened, and if we need to clarify anything, I'll contact you by PM.

Your answers are used to compile the quiz questions, choose the items for your goody bag, plan talks, workshops, and craft sessions, etc, and to select suitable menus for Saturday, so do, please, fill in the form and tell us your current fandoms and your dietary needs!



Your data -- username, real name, email address and PayPal account name -- will be used for the purpose of organising Writercon UK meetings only. It will be stored securely for two years, after which time it will be deleted, but you can ask to be removed from our mailing list and have your data deleted at any time.
