    Right, I'm on a mission of a train journey and I'm doing this on my iPhone, beer in hand and listening to one of coshh's mixes.

    Anyway down to business, I have been thinking about the dnb forum party 2 and thought I would get the ball rolling. I think we can make this a much bigger and better night!

    1. Monies

    We still have 90 quid left over from last time so that's a good start, shouldn't need many donations to get it up and running. To anyone who donated last time it should be free entry.*
    We do need to charge more on the door tho cos we lost out last time. We charged £2, if we had charged £4 we would have just broke even so I say we make it £5 on the door. Any profit can go to night 3.

    2. The door

    There was a massive head ache with the door staff and taking money last time. If anyone knows someone who will sit on the door all night and take money for say £30 and a few beers then let's just do that. Obviously it has to be someone trust worthy!!

    3. Djs / mcs and schedules

    We either do it like last time and cram in as many as we can or we just have solid one hour slots with less people. Both have advantages and dissadvantages. Who gets to play can be sorted a little later... No bitching!!!

    4. Mic leads

    There were none last time!! We need to bring some!

    5. Date

    Probably one of the more improtant things... When!? Let's avoid clashing with some big nights this time! Maybe April / may time? Gives a couple of months to get it sorted but not clashing with summer holidays.

    6. Plan

    Lastly you have to submit a plan when hiring a place, rock do you still have the last one? If not can you give me a hand with this as I have no fucking clue!!

    7 venue

    Sorry I just realised I put nothing about venue, I don't think we will find anywhere as cheap as public life so that's probably where it will be, but if anyone has any ideas please share them.

    Let's see some support for this guys, who's actually up for it??*

    I'm going to get another beer....

    I think we should get a bigger venue... I will donate.. Perhaps say another £90? That would double what you have, would that help?

    Hope you enjoy the mix :teeth:

    Also I think we need to promote this one more. Fliers the lot.

    Well that would give us £180 which is exactly what public life cost us in the first place. Some where bigger would need more funding. Plus we didn't even pack out public life, to get somewhere bigger we would need some bigger confirmed numbers!

    By the way mate, your jan mix is large! Really seeing me through this journey nicely!

    Nice one :D

    Perhaps we should still use that place then, but promote the event more, fliers etc.

    What would the cost of a venue be with about 200-300 capacity, and that stays open later?

    Um only thing to mention. It would have seemed really empty if it was larger. It would be nice to get something running, but also would be nice to wait itl summer, and get Mansell to hook up a field, and I am sure we can hook up a sound system. Make it a weekender free party oh gosh
