The Society of Ancients Conference 2017
« on: April 06, 2017, 12:41:19 PM »
When: 14-15 October 2017

Where: Chesford Grange Hotel Kenilworth

Cost: £189 for two days, including Saturday night accommodation and dinner




The Society of Ancients Conference 2017 will take place over the weekend 14th and 15th October, at the same venue as the 2016 Conference, the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

We are limited to 40 places, so after the success of the 2016 Conference you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment!

Those who attended this year will know that we like everyone to get involved! We also need volunteers to run a session. Sessions can either be a presentation to the Conference on a subject, which with a subsequent discussion will last around an hour, or else can be running games, rules workshops, or anything else you may choose to come up with! Please send your ideas to Richard Lockwood at soaconference@soa.org.uk

The cost for the weekend is £189, which includes the two full days at the Conference, buffet lunch both days, the Conference Dinner on the Saturday evening, bed and breakfast Saturday night, and teas and coffees, biscuits and cakes etc throughout the days. Single day attendance, including the lunch, is available for £45 per day.

For those arriving on the Friday evening we have negotiated a Conference bed and breakfast rate of £105, which should also be booked in advance though us.

Because the Society is required to pay the venue in advance for the Conference we will require full payment four weeks before the Conference. However, in order to reserve your place we will initially be taking £45 deposits, either by the Society website PayPal route or by cheques made out to the Society of Ancients and sent to the Treasurer. These deposits are non-returnable unless we are able to find someone else to attend in your place.

So can I ask: who is thinking of attending but has not yet signed up? Do you have questions about the event? What do you think about the concept of the Conference?

All interactions welcome!

Richard

Hi Richard,
I am considering coming but there is a domestic commitment hanging over that weekend so I cannot confirm until that is resolved.

Thanks for replying Paul. I hope you are able to come. Just as a reminder - there are "day only" options for both Saturday and Sunday, so if you cannot make the whole weekend then one day only is possible.

Who's going for the Friday evening this year? I need to decide (and pay up) before long. It's a bit of a pricy extra but saves getting up really early Saturday morning to travel.

Come to that, who's going at all?
