Thronescamp: Game of Thrones readthrough 2017

With a bit more time to plan this year, the_alchemist and I will be co-organising a readthrough of Seasons 1 & 2 of Game of Thrones in early 2017. As was intended last year, the initial invite list will be "people who went to Bardcamp in 2015", but if some of those people don't want to come (which several have indicated, although they're welcome to change their mind) then we'll invite some other people. If you're interested in coming please do complete the poll whether or not you were at Bardcamp '15.

There are 20 episodes, which makes quite a busy weekend if we start on Friday, or a rather more leisurely one if we start on Thursday. I had thought that I'd found some better transcripts than were previously available, but it turned out that that was only for the first episode, and that there'll be a moderate amount of work involved in making them useable, so volunteers to help with that would be much appreciated.

I really want to do this so much. But I am in Amsterdam for work 28th - 30th January, it is IVFDF 24th - 26th February, and I am trying to arrange a major holiday somewhere between Jan 1st and the end of February which will take out at least two more weekends. So I've currently only said I can do March. When the major holiday gets a bit more consolidated there's a chance I might be able to make one of the earlier weekends, but it'd be luck...
[We are chasing holiday quotes even as I type, I expect it to consolidate within the next four weeks if it happens...]
I think at this point my answer is, I have no idea. :-( It depends enormously on a range of factors to do with health, money and who else would be there*. If you need to get numbers firmed up before I'm able to be certain, I'd be interested in being on the reserve list if you have one.

I haven't expressed date preferences due to this uncertainty, but:

a) I would be slightly less likely to be able to make the second half of March due to a possible-tentative-maybe-if-things-come-together Ardnamurchan holiday with friends in possibly-maybe-tentatively early April to coincide with S's 40th birthday.

b) The 25th-26th February and the 11th-12th March are the potential dates for the 2017 Unite FoR Peace gathering (with the Feb date being likeliest), which would itself most likely be at the Ebenezer Chapel, and that affects Matt W, Sam PF and me. :-)

I note that my offer to edit an episode is tentative, and only applies if I do attend. :-)


*Especially, if I'm anything like as ill as I have been in late winter/early spring in recent years, going without one of my partners wouldn't really work! If strangederby2 is up for it that definitely makes things more likely. :-)

(Oh, and I should note that if it's somewhere that isn't one of the Ebenezer Chapel or the Old Baptist Chapel or somewhere else very near my home, my chances of going would definitely be significantly lower. Given how uncertain I am already, mind, I'm not going to be terribly offended if changing area does for some reason turn out to be the best plan for those more definite!)

Oh, and: I am definitely interested, it's just, well, practicalities. :-)
Sounds great, I'm really keen, but with caveat that I dont yet have work/conference plans for next year, and would have to fly in so preference for Friday to minimise holiday time needed to get there. #expatproblems... :-)
Ooh, yay!

I am definitely interested, and at the moment cannot predict which weekends would be particularly good or bad. There is also, however, a small-to-medium possibility that I might be living in a different continent by then, in which case my attendance would be rather unlikely...
[editing answer assumes I don't need to use Word :-)] I'd like to pre-emptively pitch for Tyrion :-)
