Informal Meet #1 - Caffe Nero

We organised a "mini" meet for Monday 7th October 3.30-7pm.
It was a free for all, and just for fun, and a bit of getting to know each other. 
We got a couple of Mario Kart cups in, discussed some upcoming games, and compared eshop buys. We also discussed our potential next event, and how we might get the word out.

We arranged this meet for a weekday, after a request from the GAME guy, who works both Saturdays and Sundays. This worked well for some and not for others. Unfortunately the GAME guy had an emergency to tend to, some were still at work, and others had lectures.

Those who finished at 5 popped up for a bit, and a couple joined us earlier who had lectures at 5.
There were approximately 4 of us at any one time, which was nice for the more intimate gaming, but also a little disappointing for numbers. We saw about 8 faces altoether, with a few requests that a different day might be better.

Thus a dilemma. We don't want to clash with Bangor University's Gaming League (wednesday afternoons) and every other afternoon, someone is going to have work or lectures!

The venue itself was very good for atmosphere and food provisions, but again, the wifi connection interfered with the local connection, so playing Mario Kart and anything else was a struggle!
If we use Caffe Nero again, we need to take the interference into account, though on the other hand it's the perfect central location complete with relay, for multiple Streetpassing opportunities!

We do intend to do at least one mini meet in between the main events, but venue may change or alternate between a few ideas :)
