    Failing this, there are plenty of B&B's around the area all find able on Google.
    THE COST FOR ANYONE ATTENDING WILL BE 40 PER PERSON REGUARDLESS OF HOW LONG YOU ARE THERE FOR The hall fee's need to be covered and with a few of these meetings in the past, being short of bodies, I need to make sure the hall fee's are covered hence the price. It's basically 10 a day for sheer unadulterated enjoyment of the highest order.

    You will be issued with Black bin bags to be kept at your area and ALL your rubbish from the weekend MUST go in these bags AND TAKEN HOME WITH YOU!!! No exceptions to this PLEASE!
    Upon early leaving and on the Monday during clear up of the event you will be expected to tidy our area and remove cable ties, tape etc, stack your chairs and fold down your table before you go.
    It will be greatly appreciated if this is done xxx

    There are no other rules at this event which is what makes this event what it is, chilled, easy and sociable.
    The organiser accepts NO responsibility if you get injured and by coming to the meeting you accept full responsibility for your actions. You understand the dangers involved and will not nail my arse to a wall if you get blinded by a stray beam of nice coherent laser light - OK!!!
    Please keep your equipment and area neat and tidy AND PLEASE, NO CABLES ACROSS THE CENTER OF THE HALL, ACROSS EMERGENCY EXITS & GENERAL DOORWAYS
    Come, enjoy and be very Lasery!

    Action plan for today:
    1. Tell my missus i am going to UK again (again ? yes again!).
    2. Ask 8. and Manfred today if they want to come over (Manfred ? yes Manfred!)
    3. Book ferry
    4. Book Hotel

    Looking forward Jim. Will leave mondaymorning 9.30.


    @ANDY: you can bring the mill this time! Jim kindly asked to leave it outside in the rain (why is he asking for Rain?).
    The fireworks you can stick up where the sun don't shine ;-)


    @JIM: Aren't you afraid that people won't turn up for a quickie when you charge them 40 quid for just a short visit of 1 or 2 days ? <--- hmmm this sentence looks strange...with quickie and charging 40 quid, doesn't it ? But you know what i mean..
    I mean it might work against you and again people stay home ?
    Why not charge 40 for 3/4 days and shorter stay 10 pound a day ? Or 20, but at least something that doesn't scare new people away that haven't experienced the awesomeness and kindness of us guys ?
    The regulars then fill up the cost for the hall, the extra people are just added bonus. Just my thought ?

    Just for the record, i have NOOOOOO problem paying 40 quid for 3 days with you lot. And you know Reinder isn't either.
    That's 13 quid a day for learning new swear words, watch crazy people built even crazier stuff, see some retro lasers and learn how it was done in the old days, have fun, play disco monkey over the LOUDspeakers, have real proper english food (like sausages and baked beans and mashed potatoes) and curry and did i say FUN ? Oh yeah i did, but it's really FUN.

    I'll be there Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Just deciding which alternative hotel I should use, 'cos i'm not going back to the Ship again. Shame really, but hey ho, only themselves to blame.

    Point1: discussed with the missus and got green light, she is working that weekend. Yay. WIN! (I did get a remark i am on holidays more with 8. than with her though) she has got a point so must go on holiday more with the missus.
    Point 2: Why ask 8. ? he Always wants to join me to the LEM. Manfred said Yes immediately when i told him the date (COOL!)
    Point 3: Still to do
    Point 4: just booked 2 rooms at the Riverside (1 for manfred) and a double room for Reinder and me with seperate beds, wanted to go to Ship but heard something about wedding and a room not being available on saturday and immediately shut down and was like. NOPE NOPE NOPE! Nice prices btw too, cheaper than the ship ;-) (The expression cheap as chips comes to mind...)
