I'm seething however still hopeful .
Speaking to the hotel again next week to see if latest changes will mean they can no longer run conferences. If that is the case, then all our hard work will be for nothing :-)
Early Bird tickets available unt
Is it possible to extend the date for tickets? I still hope it will take place *hugs*
My confirmation email doesn't state that there is a time limit. Have you received the confirmation email stating 21 days?
I'm assuming you booked under the Bookcrossing event. If you wish I can contact the event organiser at the Maldron and clarify the situation. I would need your full name and dates you have booked. PM me the details if you'd like me to clarify.
and I'm so sorry...
Apparently people from Switzerland have to quarantine for two weeks when arriving in UK, or so my sister and other English friends have informed me. Why, I don't understand, as we have very few confirmed cases now and hardly any deaths, just one this week. That alone makes it difficult for me to come, as I don't want to spend two weeks locked down in my sister's bungalow. But even worse is that direct flights from Geneva to Newcastle have been cancelled - I would have to fly to Manchester or Edinburgh.
So, very sadly, I have to tell you I can't come. (And I'm secretly hoping you postpone the whole UnCon for a year...)
Easyjet still have flights from Geneva to Edinburgh and Manchester but combining Newcastle, a week with my sister in Redcar and returning home is just too much hassle (and a lot more expensive than the original £20 flight GVA-Newcastle).
As the numbers attending the Uncon seem to be falling rather than rising it seems more and more likely the Uncon will be postponed. So we have today decided to cancel the hotel.
Hopefully next year more people will feel confident about attending/travelling.
Teachie, Mr Teachie
