    I've been thinking about going away on holiday for a few weeks, but I don't really know who I could go with. It got me thinking though, would an FF-UK holiday be feasible? Would it be possible to organise and book a holiday for the whole FF-UK?

    We had a "Grand Day Out" once which was fun. But a holiday would be tricky.
    I'm all for it if proves possible.

    How about we have a big day out thing and do it at somewhere like Butlins or another holiday park? That way those that can get there easily can join in on the day and those that can't can stay the weekend or something.

    Or a weekend in Blackpool? Beaches, Theme Parks, Bars etc. Plus you can get fairly cheap B&Bs.

    i don't think it's impossible to organize, but attempts in its general direction, say by the northern ff to go to edinburgh, seemed to be quite difficult.

    Well nothing will get organized with that attitude :p

    Here's a good example for accommodation. http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/The-Lynwood-Hotel/Blackpool/24927

    From £15 a night. Caters for big groups, good location etc. For those of us who are poor and don't mind slumming it.

    You should facebook pictures from that event, I'm not sure I've even seen many of them.

    It would be cool to do a similar event again sometime, now my degree is nearly done I'll be available more often to do things.

    Well this year's FanForce Europe meeting will be in Copenhagen in August, no set dates yet. It would be fun if some of you would join us.

    That could work, though I'd worry about those who'd have to travel a long way or can't travel easily and have to go by bus/train/etc.

    well a couple of others and I were thinking of taking a trip there soon because at burger king you can get tickets that give you half price entry or something like that!
