We thought of you and decided not to publish your distance in case it disuaded you.

Bad news for you though is that we have someone travelling in from Norway so you wont be getting the longest distance prize this time. On the other hand they might not either as there is a possibility that we may have people coming from the far east as well.

I saw the headline, Basingstoke, and through "Great! One I can get to easily!" (I haven't been able to attend any previous meetings).

I would have loved to attend, and Basinstoke's within very easy striking distance from me (I'm visiting friends there this evening, as it happens).
Unfortunately, I work from 10 'til 2pm on a Saturday and won't be able to take the day off, so the timing just isn't going to work for me.

Oh well, maybe another time.

Get the stingy bu**ers to pay for a room this time so you can stop over and we can share a beer!

What is the car parking situation like, is there ample parking at the hotel? or do we need to find alternative places.

There is a fair quantity of parking but it does rather depend on how many attendees come by car and if the hotel is full.

Hi
Have any emails been sent yet to say who have got a place for the meet.

I've not got an email yet, so wondering if I'm going.

Cheers
Phil

No, I'm collating the emails and we've had a staggering response with over 450 so far.

Everyone who's applied so far has been accepted although we're approaching capacity.

Confirmation emails will be going out this weekend.

Thanks to all for the support and fantastic response.

Confirmations went out this morning so if you registered before about 10am today you should have received an email confirming your registration.

I'll collate all the remaining registrations and confirm those next weekend though we don't have much space left so if you do want to attend and haven't registered yet you'll need to be quick. Once our 600 capacity has been reached we'll not be able to accept further registration.

Please note

If you are unable to attend please can you email us and let us know. This will allow us to allocate your space to someone else who would like to come.

Thanks.

It might be a good idea for a future event but space, time and the practicalities of it for this event aren't in our favour. Perhaps anyone wanting to sell old equipment could use the For sale forum and annotate that they'll be at the event so you can meet and complete the transaction there?
