  1. The location is no more weird” than any other event held outside the UK. I’d contest that Estes Park is equally as ‘exotic’. Jakarta is full of ex-pat Scots etc.

  2. You know what? This was cool to read. Amazing to me is that it’s the 31st gathering they have had. Any other weird” locations that games are held?”
