Actually, if we get the money together soon (I might take a while), then we could draft 29/30 November.

How much is it going to cost me again, I found out at the last gathering but I have forgotten.

Marcus can't make it, but Hugh has confirmed he can make it.
Will Kevin be able to draft? (If you read this, Kevin, please post something, that is the reason the forum is set up ) Very Happy

It may depend on defining an exact date & time.

Has that been decided?

OK, a post from me.

Saturday out for me tomorrow unless it rains (unlikely). Sunday would have been out but that's irrelevant now.

I'm a starter for the draft, except it depends on the date. December is out or me as I'm overseas for the first two and a bit weeks. Last weekend in November might be an issue to, as it might not go down to well with Kathy is I'm not around the weekend before I go away. So, might be a problem for me I guess, seeing as those are the dates mentioned.

Yes, there are two versions of me in this forum now (Dr Kevin and Mr Hyde, I guess). I was at home and my password was at work (and not in my increasingly overfull mind).

I think you're taking this a bit too hasty, Chris (or so all the angry people at school told me I was ) Cool . I'll get the money together after exams, at the first week of december, then we can draft soon after.

Sure afro
Here's the deal....
Hero's have only 1 Shaddowmoor booster box, which Ian wont hold but has offered me @ 20% discount, now. (Besides its November now).

When he sells that box there may not be another one. Perhaps you can get one at a cheaper price but with the current XRate I doubt it.

I dont mind letting you buy one at a time thats suits the guys at school, thats fine.

Good Luck!!

That changes things, of course, but I won't come to the meetings during exam time anyway.
What about ordering a box?

Maybe if its January (Kevin can come) we could wait closer to the time? and see whats available then. It doesnt have to be Shadowmoor....

Maybe even Mr Proficiency will be in a better position to come then too?

Isn't Kevin's Avatar scarey!?

I think that's a good idea, I can still collect money throughout this month/year

What if everyone just brings 5-sealed boosters of a random nature?

That would be random!

This si getting confusing, can somebody plz notify me once things have been verified, e.g dates, and what the cost will be, I have the money for the original plan of 20% off sitting there, but if it is at a later dates as it may be now and it will cost more plz let me know.

I don't want to be involved in organizing this until december, which gives us over a month to organize the draft.
I think chris's idea is a bit selfish, since no-one else will be able to get boosters for the same price as him. Should we wait until the exchange rate falls?

Correction:

My geek plan A was the 20% off idea where afro collect the money in advance and I get the massive discount..

Your afro idea was that I accept 100% risk and at the same time telling me that your 'angry' mates at PNBHS were not prepared to front up with the money.

Thats when I came up with plan B which I thought was very fair i.e. they could bring their own boosters.

Plan C: Alternatively afro you could give me the $185 and I will buy the box???

Plan D: default, otherwise we will just wait until a time that suits afro and he has collected the moneys. I may still be able to get 20% then, I dont know.....

Sorry for the confusion Harry.....Perhaps WWW could shed some light on the sitch?

This is what I hate about these things. Because I'm the only one reliable enough that can inform the others of what's happening, I have to organize these things, then when neither end can agree on what to do and assume I have absolutely nothing to do in my spare time, I get the blame for any incompetence or indecision. So, I want to settle this once and for all:

Anyone at school will be willing to do the draft december or later, but will probably not be coordinated enough to bring in the money before that time. My bet is that heroes will restock soonish, but if we want to get this over and done with, we take six people who are 100% on coming in december instead of 7.This would be me, harris, chris, william, peter and hugh. I'll try get as much money together as possible during exams, chris buys the box, then whoever didn't pay pays you back later. I'm still not sure what's happening with peter and hugh, but it's them or nothing now.

I need to let off steam in the random remarks page.

I'll get Jonathan to bring along as much money as possible on the 23/24th Nov. meeting, i'll post how much as well as I don't trust him as much as I'd like to.

He told me himself he's not trustworthy...
Looks like I'll have trouble getting the money together as Jonathan has expressed disinterest in exam-time meetings as well. I won't be getting my money in until I can drop off in town.
