Anyone Heading to A19?  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters I'm here to find out if anyone will be going to A19 next year. I'm still going as I've paid for my ticket, but at the moment I'm not sure if I'll stay overnight, if I go back and forth on the train I know what mother dearest will do..."Why do you have to go so early? Surely you don't have to be there till lunch time."  Then it will be, "You're staying too late, you're not being fair to Steve." So at the moment I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I've got everyhting crossed that we get some good guests, but I've got a bad feeling all the 'big' names will head to Rome. I just feel so sorry for Rogue, they've only got two cons on next year and this is their biggest.  If they can't get it to fly, A19 might be the last one.

Such a stupid, stupid situation. I really hope Asylum can secure some good guests for you all, I don't want to see them pack it in any more than you do. I'm truly hoping this year is just an aberration.

I've got my fingers crossed that they do get some good guests, and here's hoping that this clash won't happen again.

I really hope that's the case, this is such a shame. It's really split the European fandom and scuppered a lot of peoples' plans.

It can't be good for either convention for this to happen agaim.

You're right in the long term clashes like this will only hurt both conventions, here's hoping this really is a one off.

I would love to say yes, but I don't have the money and I can;t know until after this whole mess with my DBS is sorted out *hugs* It's a shitty situation for sure, but, staying would probably save your blood pressure hun! Maybe have a word with Chellexxx she may be going and last year I stayed at hers 'cause she's a doll, talk to her?

Fingers crossed you get that DBS sorted out sooner rather than later. I'm leaning towards stopping at the Hilton as you're right about my blood pressure. I will have a word with Chellexx and see if she will be there.

Seriously, the money for the Hilton will pale in comparison to the lack of stress and high blood pressure and headaches of going home each night.

I've been to every Asylum since Asylum2 up to last year, I didn't go this year as it was in Blackpool. I'm not going to anymore though :(

I wonder why they can't change the date to the week or the week before and maybe then they could get J2 again.

I hope you get amazing guests as I know you'll have fun even if J2 don't go.

It's a shame you're not going we could've met up, I'm not really sure why they didn't move weeks, it might have something to do with the Hilton being booked up.

I've got my fingers crossed we get some great guests, and I'm sure we'll end up having fun.
