SB 51 @ the Curve - Are you in?


#1

Calling all TFP’ers, @everyone

The Curve

Please let me know whether you are interested within the next week if possible, thank you.

An exciting opportunity has come up to celebrate Superbowl 51 on Sunday the 5th of February in a remote & super exciting party house. Currently I’m looking to build a core group of about 10 TFP members who want to attend and are “confident” that they can attend.

Currently UK football fans are in a bind with no real front runner venue for when it comes to celebrating the super bowl and myself and others are always on the look out for new venues and potential offerings. One such option is this amazing first class property.

This multi million £ house is designed and built using cutting edge ideas, materials and features with the intention of letting it out for events and parties. I have provisionally booked the house for Sunday the 5th of February 2017 (Superbowl night) however provisional bookings dont last forever.

The house itself is located in Lincolnshire so we would likely need some volunteer drivers from the South to reduce overall costs. The provisional booking is to check in at 7pm on the Sunday and check out by the same time the following day so we would have 4/5 hours of enjoying the house before settling into the studio for build up and the game itself. With a late check out on the Monday people would have plenty time to recover and enjoy the house Monday afternoon prior to hitting the road early evening. The exact cost for accommodation is £165 per person for 24 hours. This is based on 15 Peeps sharing the property. According to the owner this is the right number for a group looking to use the cinema room as a key part of their stay.

This price would not cover travel, food or drink but we are looking into car shares and there are annual deals with Virgin trains that offer amazing reductions to move Londoners up North very cheaply at this time of year!!

Some might say that 165 is a lot for one night and that may be true but many of us feel that the Superbowl is the pinnacle of the season and possibly even the height of all sports. Its a once a year finale, something to really celebrate. Dean put it quite well when he said it was nothing more than the cost of staying at a decent hotel for one night. I like to look at it like this…

“165 is indeed the approximate cost of staying in a decent hotel but this is not a hotel, its simply better than that… Its a multi million £ party house, yet its not just a house either because within it there are several great ways to entertain a large group such as a 9ft american pool table, a ping pong table, an xbox with racing kit and more. Outside we have a tennis court and hot tub for the football fan that just cant help themselves. In addition The Curve will be filled with another 14 revved up, fun loving, friendly football fans bringing in the biggest game of them all in a top of the range, professional quality cinematic room where your own seat awaits you. We shall have the run of the place for 24 hours and unlike a London penthouse equivalent this house is set out in the country, detached from all other houses so noise from cheering football fans at 4am on the Monday will annoy absolutely nobody. Does it still sound expensive”??

I have included some spec re the house below but please do the house justice by visiting their own web site before kindly letting me know if you want in. We are looking for committed people who are fairly confident that they can attend as drop outs severely affect cost.

Many thanks

The Property.

Newly built and designed from the ground up by a conservation Architect with a brief to include cutting edge technology, The Curve Eco House is a unique building created specifically for large party sharing. Using only quality materials and fittings throughout it is literally curved in nature. One elevation is completely clad in cedar encasing Scandinavian levels of insulation. The building curves from the East through South and West, making the most of the Sun’s trajectory and winter solar gain.
The result is a spectacular building with unique spaces created by radial and curved walls, a challenge for the builders but transformational when you embrace the inside.
With masses of floor to ceiling windows, a wraparound black limestone terrace, gull wing zinc roofs, 1st floor balconies with curved glass and all highlighted with LED spot lighting, it is a futuristic building that blends seamlessly into picturesque surroundings in the day and transcends to your own Hollywood movie setting at night.

#8

I’m 100% in, it would be a real privilege to watch the game at a venue like this for the cost of a decent hotel room.
Hope this happens


#9

Great news, nice one Dean


#10

What a fantastic place and a fantastic idea. I wouldn’t be able to make it as I have commitments with my job and family, but I’m sure you will fill this up.


#11

Thanks for letting us know Majic, shame that you cannot make it.


#12

Shani has confirmed as an “in” person :grinning: Nice one Shani, we now have 5


#13

I’m in Gordon count me in as number 6


#14

Brilliant Sean


#15

Looking for another 4 at least to make up the core group from TFP. People like Jon, Mary, Chris, Alan, Noel, George obviously come to mind… any thoughts peeps?


#16

This is how payment would break down…

All costs include:

Overnight stay per person: £165
Damages waiver deposit per person: £100
Per person total outlay: £265
Returns per person on no damage: £100
Total eventual cost per person: £165

Payment time line:

In next 4/6 weeks initial deposit per person: £66
By first week in November remaining balance per person: £99
By middle of January damage waiver deposit per person £100

Ideally I would suggest that both the £99 and £100 are paid by early Nov as its often tough to find spare £100 bills in the cold and dark of January but essentially that’s everyone’s personal choice. If a person decided that they could no longer go after paying some deposit we would work tirelessly to find your replacement and on doing so we would refund your deposit. We believe that in nearly all cases a relacement would be found but take this approach because maintaining 15 ensures that the price for all remaining party goers does not rise. I sincerely hope that’s fair.

Bring on the new season, why is it not September yet! :smile:


#17

I’m in dude, dunno what number that makes me, but figure I need to school you oldies on that sweet pool table :wink: haha


#18

Fantastic George! That makes you number 6 as Shani’s situation sadly changed and for now at least he can’t make it. Lets hope they keep coming.


#19

Further news…

Initial deposits from each person attending is £66 and this will be required by Mon the 1st of August by 10am.

Kind Rgds

I’m afraid I don’t think I’ll be able to make it Gordon, as it looks like that might be when I’m going to be on honeymoon.

Looks awesome though!
