Roomies For VidUKon
These posts have two purposes; firstly, to help people arrange their rooms for VidUKon, and secondly, to help them find roommates to share with if they're so inclined. The posts are on both Livejournal and DreamWidth, so please make sure to post on both if you're looking for a roomie.
Booking Your Room
Here are the current room rates:
Friday - £94.00 B&B single and £104.00 B&B double or twin
Saturday - £119.00 B&B single or £129.00 B&B double or twin
If you want to have more than 2 people in a room, make sure to check the rate when you're booking.
There are currently 10 rooms being held for the con; these rooms are only being held until 16 April. If you book later than that, you're fighting to get a booking at the regular room rates, whatever they are. Rates tend to go up sharply, particularly if there's an event on in Cardiff, so don't delay.
Sometimes the staff can get confused about what rate to book you at. We strongly recommend speaking to the Reservations department to arrange your room, not Reception. The reservations people are much more clued up, and should know what you're talking about if you say that you want to book one of the rooms reserved for VidUKon.
Finding a Roomie
In theory, finding a roomie should be simple - ask for one in a comment here, another kind soul spots your post and shouts "Yay!" and you work things out. However, to help with that, the con twitter will keep reminding people that someone's looking for a roomie, if there's a comment here saying that someone is looking. Hopefully, everything will be ... simples.
