Yes, I would imagine a Festival would provide a focus, and then excursions could be arranged around it.

In Tanzania I know of a fixer who also has a small camp and could organise things for us.

Further to the above, I currently work in the tourism industry in Uganda, and have previously done so in Kenya, Tanzania & South Africa.

@Chris Hurd
I just now read that you are planning a meeting in Amsterdam next year, and I might be able to get you a sharp prize for a stay in one of the NH Hotels there, since I work for this company.

@All
This is the case for all NH Hotels around the world. Even if not for a get together and you plan to stay in a NH hotel I can see what I can do.

Send me an e-mail if you are interested.

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

So far, two destinations seem to stand out:

1. Bristol UK (and the film festival October 2016)

2. Norway - Kvams°y - Runde (Geir Inge's backyard)
Best time of year to visit this place, should probably be Geir Inge's decision, but I guess spring or late summer?

I suggest we vote for these two options, and whichever gets most votes, becomes our location for the 2016 get together.

--------
Please submit your votes to uwol@dvinfo.net
Votes closes at midnight June 7.

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

I didn't get in to vote but this sounds like a great venue for our first UWOL meetup.

Plenty of time to start socking money away for the trip.

Who knows,maybe one of us will have a film in the festival.

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

Airfare from Cedar Rapids to Bristol is about $1500 round trip if I were to fly this October.

I'm guessing we may see about getting a block of rooms at a hotel to get a discount maybe?

Wildscreen tickets are a little pricey but the whole reason for going to Bristol is to attend the festival.

Already told the girlfriend we're gng to England next year so she's stoked to be going too!

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

Do we know the dates of the festival yet?

I need to schedule my vacation by the end of December to lock it in for 2016

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

I'm looking at the Wildscreen website, but I can't find anything after the 2014 festival.

The only thing they write about 2016, is on the front page: "We'll see you in October 2016".
