    Quick Update on StratLAN Xmas Party 2017!

    Moar seats

    We have ordered the new internet lines and are waiting on engineers to come out next week to install.
    We are planning to open up the Grandstand top floor bar area first (if the line installs go well and their aren't any issues), this will be approximately 60 to 70 extra spaces.

    The Grandstand bar area is a really nice separate room which has air conditioning, curtains to keep out the day star and carpet and there will be volunteer staff looking after this area.

    If we find that we max that capacity also then we do have the option to open up more seats in the Grandstand ground floor which is commonly used as the sleeping area at StratLAN. More detail on this to follow if the first batch of extra seats is released.

    Seat Picker

    Once we have the answer on the extra seats we will be looking to release the seat picker within the next week.
    Provisional date for the seat picker will be W/C 23rd October and more details will be sent out about exact times at least a week in advance via emails/forums/discord/social.

    Food, Fridges and Belmore

    We once again have Belmore Foods back to services all your catering needs, further information for what is on offer and pre booking meals will be sent out in the next few weeks along with the seat picker update.

    The fridge in the main kitchen has seen a lot of use at every StratLAN event. As the demand continues to grow to demands on the fridge do cause the fridge to not function as it is meant to. As such we are going to implement a new fridge opening time rota which we will ask you all to respect and follow.

    Also make sure you bring a cooler box and this will act as a mini fridge next to your desk for convenience!

    Sleeping

    Camping will be in the same area as every event in the center of the racecourse but if we do expand the event to Grandstand ground floor for BYOC then we will also be using the building in the center of the racecourse for indoor sleeping.

    As we are potentially increasing in size for BYOC this will put extra strain on the indoor sleeping which will be limited and on first come first serve. To maximise space in the indoor sleeping area we are asking customers to be respectful and bring smaller airbeds and campbed. Please don't bring massive double airbeds as this will take up lots of room and will limited the space on an already limited area.

    We do have pretty much unlimited (as much as we want really) camping space so this would be the option if you want to avoid disappointment, either that or book a local B&B!

    That's it for now. We will update more when we have it but make sure you add you name to the reserve list of you want an chance to reserve a space if more tickets are made available.

    Add yourself to the reserve list here

    Thanks

    Wouldn't the marquee/pavilion at the other end of the grandstand be a better option for this? At least it's tarmacked all the way to it.

    Having slept in there before, it's definitely not a better idea in winter.

    So, we're almost two weeks on from "soon". I know that these things aren't instant, but I'd appreciate any update on more seating availability earlier rather than later, due to holiday season etc.

    Hey,

    The seat picker will be released "even more soon than before".

    The reason for the delay is that to unlock additional seating, we had to be confident we had the power and network infrastructure, and staff to cope with the additional seats. This incurred delays from external providers whilst we were getting confirmation.

    I'm sure Geo will be putting out announcements via various channels soon to let people know whats happening with additional space, and when the seat picker will become available.

    Cheers!
