When and where is yours?

 

Some have been told this week. I was hearing from a friend last night that there won't be a convention at Exeter next year but are being assigned to Cardiff instead

Any more information? Where are the Exeter A and Exeter B convention congregations moving too? Is it all congregations effected or just a few? I thought they had  a couple more years left on the contract for that convention place. We should get our announcement tonight  so should be interesting.

I don't know all the details. All I can say is that my friend was an Exeter B congregation this year (2016) and they have received their 2017 convention assignment letter for Cardiff

We also has the RC announced,  (unexpected change: no longer at Milton Keynes)  now: London Excel  C  25 - 27 August.  I should have been prepared...We have to 'expect the unexpected'  if you have watched Br Geoffrey Jackson's talk in the annual meeting Part 3 (excellent talk).

That is buzzard because my friend and his  parents both were at Exeter B this year and they both are being assigned to Cardiff in 2017. (4-6 August)

 

A friend from Wales is having their convention (congregations normally assigned to Cardiff) the week afterwards

I'm in a foreign language congregation so will be going to 2 conventions (English & Chinese) and I am glad that the English one is before our Chinese one so I can understand some of it.  I have to wait until end of August for both mine though.

As I understand it, at least for Milton Keynes B, they are only going to use the indoor part of the stadium.  So a lot smaller this year, and no one outside.

I see Exeter is available 30th June to 2nd and the following weekend. Has anyone been to Exeter for the Convention? I Would like to try combining with a short holiday.
