  • The Ultimate UK Meet?

    ANOTHER UPDATE:

    Just been confirmed that pcmediastore.com will be attending - so if you need anything - you'll get a chance to look and buy



    UPDATE:

    OK the meet is organised - The date is the 26th September at Billing Aquadrome near Northampton, if your not signed up allready - do so !!
    Currently we have 41 people





    it's website is: http://www.billingaquadrome.com

    Some of use (Including me, StevieG and Cloudy (James Warner) are going down on the Saturday 25th for about 6PM. We'll be putting up a couple of tents, making a barbeque and consuming a few beers. Everyone who want to come down then is more than welcome!

    On the Sunday the 26th September it's the 'meet'. We'll be starting around 10am-ish. The plan is to have a good look and demonstation of everyone's set up and those that haven't installed yet can ask those that have questions, and we'll be filming some of it and taking pictures for the web site.

    After that we'll be setting up a LAN game, perhaps some 'GPS treasure hunting' and maybe watching a movie. More to come!

    Costs

    12 to stop over Saturday 25th, 5 to come on the Sunday. Pay on the gate of Billing Aquadrome. That's not paying us, that's just the entry costs into Billing.

    The Date

    Sunday 26th September 2004

    Beer and BBQ the night before for those stopping over.








    StevieG and I are putting together what we hope to be the largest meet in the UK so far,
    picking a proper venue ( not a car park ) and organising various events, competitions and challenges for the whole day. Not to mention the interest we allready have from magazines who are interested in coming along....

    the usual problem arose of how to keep track of when everyone is free, who is coming and where to have the meet. stevie came to the rescue with a fully featured web application to arrange the whole thing!

    you can access the UK meet pages here:

    More details will be avaliable nearer the time, but all we need you to do for the moment is to let us know where you are and what dates you can make - cheers

    Let everyone know and let's make this a really good meet

          Wow all the dates that people are free are fast disappearing, have added two more for the first weekend of October as well.

          This is the live list of dates that everyone is free...



          If you're not free for one of those let us know

                Changed the program that works things out.

                If someone isn't definately commited to coming to the meet (the red ones) then they aren't taken into consideration when working out the location.

                Also if someone isn't definately committed to coming then the program won't put those dates down as definate no-nos either.

                Be good if everyone can definately come though!

                            Added more dates in October (should be the last of the dates to add), as nearly all August/September is bad for everyone!
