Another Meeting?
« on: June 24, 2011, 03:38:00 PM »
September is a good time to have a meeting - so why not.

Normally, if we don't serve up the venue as a fait accompli, these threads end up with one proposed venue per poster - the herding cats principle again.

I guess the venue is not that important in itself as long as it is likely to attract enough people and is accessible.

Personally, I am unlikely to be able to get outside the UK this year - but don't let that stop anyone from suggesting venues that exclude me, wherever we decide will end up excluding some of us, fairs fair etc.


So, my initial suggestion is 'Windsor' (http://www.windsor.gov.uk)

Not been myself, but it is 'nice', easy to get to (near enough to Heathrow and London), and has some 'tourist pull'.

Anyone interested?

Other suggestions?

In.

Probably wont get out of the UK for me either.

Nice place, late bar and parking. I must admit I like grand places, and we must be close to a few decent restaurants.

Oxford was good.

Windsor is local for me and it would be great to meet some more people from here.

depending on dates, I'm in.

UK is easier for me too - Windsor fine (close to Bray if anyone fancies some very decent restaurants) or could consider Dublin or Belfast perhaps? both quite easy from most of the world and nice to visit.

Windsor is right next to Heathrow so a trip from Edinburgh is easy for me - hope I can make it this time (for the first time).

I guess it's open to suggestion - one weekend in September is as good as any other for me

Weekends of the 17th and 24th are out for me, but I can do the first two in the month.

Windsor is v.convenient for me.  September is good as well - family life should have settled down by then.

Ok - lets propose weekend commencing 09/09/2011 then.

Any obvious problems with that date?

I think it works for me.  There are a couple of things in Sept that I am waiting for dates on, that I must do, but yup, I am in.

That's a shame - would the previous weekend be any better - or does that cause problems for anyone else ?
