Would be useful to know as 2016 holiday booking starts opening up for me too.

Thx

I've already booked my guesstimate dates, I figure I've got a 50% chance of being right and we can almost always cancel leave.

We're trying to work out if this clashes with another event. Do you have dates yet?

Same here, need to get this booked pretty soon if I want to guarantee having the days off. Any chance of some dates?

Thanks for the spot Uber-munchkin. That is the weekend right before Consequences so could be exhausting for those who do both cons (though I'm temped to take that whole week off now)

Kind of a shame you can't rent for the fortnight really. Still, the right people and a shared house somewhere close but above sea level... :-)

With a change of management, there might be a change in policy. Might be worth asking.

Could be tough with three renters, IndieCon charge their tariff, Consequences charge another, and Hoburne will have a third one. You'd be looking Thurs - Mon then Tues - Wed, then Thurs - Mon again, although I think organisers of the Naish Con's regularly do an extra night for their own sanity so it might be feasible, just complicated. Complicated does tend to put management off, although we have some fairly adept hagglers here I guess.

Dear all, the dates we have been discussing with Naish are indeed the 10th-13th.

Our concern however is the hike in costings since the new ownership of the park.

Here is what we would have to charge for the 10th Edition of Indiecon:

4 Bed EBird: £500 / Standard: £520 / On site: £550
3 Bed EBird: £440 / Standard: £470 / On site: £500
2 Bed EBird: £390 / Standard: £410 / On site: £440

We have argued the case repeatedly over the last 6 weeks on the increase and the impact it may have on numbers. They have not budged one iota.

Please let us know if this is viable.

OK...

I've been wondering whether I could afford to go to Indiecon anyway this year, but if the price has been hiked up so that it's going cost me around 30% more to attend... uh, that's not a good sign.

Do those prices include the IndieCon ticket prices or are they Lodge only costs?

£137.50 per bedroom for 4 nights is still fairly reasonable. Garrison is what, £60 per night now, and Expo hotels are closer to £88 per night for the cheapest room.

I think the sticker prices shock is a lot, but it's still affordable for half a week of gaming.
