Tekelilicon 2 will be happening on 28-29 January 2023 at the Bourne End Community Library. (That’s the Bourne End in Buckinghamshire, not the one in Hertfordshire.)
The library itself will only be open until lunchtime on Saturday; if you may need to get in after that, give me a shout by PM and I’ll send you my phone number so that you can call to be let in.
The venue is wheelchair-accessible.
There’s no food immediately on site, though we do have the use of the staff fridge, sink and microwave. Outside there are small instances of Morrisons, Marks & Spencer, and Tesco, as well as several restaurants and a Costa.
There’s a charge for parking: last time I paid £4 for all day Saturday, £1 ditto Sunday. Bourne End station (BNE) is about 250m away on the flat. (There are local buses too, but I don’t recommend them.)
I am still in favour of masking.
Suggested donation £25 for one day, £40 for two days, but whatever you can manage is welcome.
original thread starter
There’s a bit of a gap in the calendar of conventions I go to, between Handycon in January (which may not be happening anyway) and Airecon in March. So I’d like to run another Tekelilicon.
The most popular weekends in a poll of the forum regulars were 28-29 January (probably a week after Handycon if it happens) and 25-26 February (two weeks before Airecon). Does anyone have a strong feeling about one or the other? Are there enough people up for it to justify renting the library again?
January is more possible than February.
Will need to confirm
Either works for me although January usually needs more fun in it.
I’ll just go with the flow and see if I can make it. Hopefully if there are train strikes again they miss the event.
I can do January. Would travel up after work on Saturday lunchtime and head home on Sunday lunchtime/ mid afternoon
@mistercrayon want a lift?
If anyone going wants to buy a lot of Root it would be a perfect way to not post it
I take it there’s enthusiasm for Saturday + Sunday as before?
Sure! I’m a terrible passenger tho’
I’d potentially be interested (family commitments permitting). Whereabouts would it be?
Unless someone has a really amazing venue to offer, same as last time: Bourne End Community Library. There’s a car park outside, and a railway station a few minutes’ walk away (trains to Maidenhead).
The room is booked, same hours as last time.
Do you have that postcode please?
or WGS84 51.57939,-0.71056
Tickets for two please… Looking forward to seeing some of you folks again
Still fixing the cost but probably about the same as last time. Same arrangements too - supporters welcome, money on the door welcome.
The first Tekelilicon was more fun than really should be legal so I am already looking forward to its sequel!
Just came across this (hello Roger!) - nice to discover another local con
I’ll keep the Saturday free, but the last Sunday of the month is usually reserved for the Maidenhead meetup group’s Party Games so I’ll probably be looking after that.
