Well... it's been a long time coming, but we're ready to go. Well, almost ready to go. Well, not quite... Well...
Oh heck, there's a lot to do before our first date which will be the 24th of September, right here in the heart of Londons West end.
Date: September 24th 2011
Time: 6:00pm until late
Location: The Royal George, 133 Charing Cross Road, London, United Kingdom (http://www.theroyalgeorgewc2.co.uk/)
We have both a Facebook event page (here), as well as a main Facebook page (here), and a website that I just brought up to launch speed this morning (here)
A month or so back I had my birthday party in the basement of a Pub in London. We used their stage with my own Rock Band gear, Xbox 360, projector, etc and the party was pretty darned successful. So successful in fact that it attracted a number of very polite and well mannered gatecrashers from the main bar upstairs who wanted to know exactly what we were doing. Once they found out they wanted to know if they could join in. Thus was the seed planted, a landlord contacted, and a plan set in motion. So, fast forward a few weeks and 'Rock Club - London' was born. We're just starting out, but we have a buttload of enthusiasm, a good measure of gear, and hopefully... *hopefully* an ounce or two of luck.
In fact, the more that I think of it, the more I realize that all we really need right now are for people to turn up. We've already spread posters and flyers around the pub and some local surrounding businesses that attract the gamer/geek crowd... Now how to attract London based peoples attention to here. It's not like there are many UK based events so I wonder how many even look here. Oh well... baby steps. If we build it they will come... maybe.
