I've been to the Sherlock Holmes in Manama, Bahrain - won a trivia contest there.  Got a free bottle of Vodka, but had to give it away, as I was departing by helicopter at zero-dark-thirty.  I like what they have done with the place; it was nice back then, but that is rather nicer.

Here is a modest SP event that plans to include quite a few of these activities:  http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,43295.0.html

 Film screenings of  vintage cult movies,  serial films and silent movies. Preferably in an old hall , theatre or similar ambient and evocative environment.

 Sea related  horrors,  outer space and giant insects  are time honoured viewing for all ages.

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.
I'd have voted for teal duelling and teapot racing, if they'd been listed as options

Yours,

La Contessa and I ran a Steampunk Swap Meet at a convention locally.  It seemed extremely popular - even got a lot of support from the dealers in the Huckster Room, when I thought there might be some opposition there.  Competition for a limited amount of dollars, you know.

But everybody had a grand time, projects were discussed, steambits were exchanged, and everyone seemed quite happy at the results.  Personally, I unloaded a lot of crap really good stuff, and got some great things in return.



Cheers!

Good morning from a lovely sunny Bournemouth
If there is truly enough interest, lets organise a weekend
I know of at least one,large hotel,with facilities, that is reasonably cheap.
First thing is to get together a list of interested people and go from there.
Obviously you would be looking out of season and it would take a lot of work
Off the top of my head,l would suggest...
Traders of all types.....formalish  tea parties and evening meals with team quizes.....
Displays of artifacts and fashion.....etc etc
I would suggest involving the local group.....Bournemouth steempunk guild,if l am not mistaken
Thoughts?

How about Tea Duelling and Tiddly Winks? Although  it might be better not to combine them into one event, unless one wished to make a splash!

Bournmouth is a lovely town, and we could pop in and see my mother-in-law afterwards... Definitely interested. We been to a group booked hotel event with formal meal in that area, cost was £150 per person for a weekend in early December, but that was fifteen years ago...

Yours,
Miranda.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.


Bartitsu featured at, to my knowledge, two of the Spanish EuroSteamCon events this autumn; those of Madrid and Zaragoza.
Madrid had a demonstration, while Zaragoza had two classes, morning and afternoon, as well as a well choreographed fight between three professionals of stage fighting.
Most splendid!

I remain yours,
