Right I'm going to bite the bullet as they say, this is what I'm going to do:

What is GIFF Weekend?
GIFF Weekend is your chance to watch the entire reel of the 16 finalist films
from the 2015 Geocaching International Film Festival. This was rained off in
Seattle at the Block Party, so is the first Global screening of the films over
the 5th to 8th November.

How long is the GIFF 2015 film reel?
The entire film reel is approximately one hour long.

And remember, you will earn a souvenir for attending a registered GIFF Weekend Event.


EVENT DETAILS:
When: 8th November 2015 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Where: Village Hall, Hawker Square, Upper Rissington GL54 2NT

Film show will start at 5:30pm PROMPT

There will be tea and coffee available and a donation box, as there was a cost in
hiring the hall. This is in line with Groundspeak Guidelines and any donation is
totally voluntary. Any excess, will be donated to a local registered
charity.

IMPORTANT:
Maximum seating capacity is 40. So it is first come, first served, if
there is that level of interest.
When logging Will Attend, please state how many seats you wish to book. If
for any reason you find you can not attend, please let us know so we can offer
the place(s) to someone else. Thank you.

That's good. I'll bring some popcorn  :D

Before you submit - the projector I had access to was at my dad's work and now that he's away it may be harder to get hold of it. I can try, and probably should before we submit, unless anyone else perhaps has easier access to one?

I'll try and see if I can sort it by the end of today.

EDIT: Should be fine and my dad is back by then anyway
  :)

That's good  :)

The event has already got a good number of Will Attends, promising!

Oh, and the graphic is even better now!  :D

Going to be difficult for me to get to this, hence part of the reason moving the next bi-monthly CC event to the following week. But I would like to, will talk with the other half later if we cross paths before one or other of us is asleep  :-\

Does the hall have a projector setup, or do you have that in hand?

Ah, it would be a shame if you weren't there for the first joint CW & CC event! Hopefully you can make it! @Gackt

Does the hall have a projector setup, or do you have that in hand?

Good question - @walktall?

The hall has no projector or screen but I've been offered, so hence I went ahead with this event :)

Depending on how many book, depends on how I set up the hall - just chairs or small tables & chairs and if I open the bar counter for all the food that's been offered :)

Most likely, will need to move the heavy wooden tables out, as they take up too much room. I'll have the hall from about 4:30pm (could be earlier) and will have it at least 30minutes after the event officially finishes, so no rush for people to go if they don't want to.

It looks like a great venue. It looks like it is of a similar size with and facilities as Quenington Village Hall, of which I enquired about holding an event at, but Quennington had too high a hire charge which put me off.

PS When the notification first came out I noticed a mistake, they had the 19th or the 26th Oct that the event had to be published by :o I let them know and see they have now corrected it but no message back saying thank you :( In fact my comment has now been deleted  :P

I see any date to apply to host a GIFF, has been removed from the blog and form. Just normal Event rules and it must be already published to apply.

I wonder if this is due to the fact that, currently (as I write this), there are only 440 Official GIFF Events in the whole World :o and it was only at 281 on the 16th October :o :o

Think adding the souvenir on the 6th October, was a way to try and bump up the numbers.
