    EduGeek Conf 2010- 2nd June, Chorley

    Well, the room is booked and we have speakers now queuing up, so whos coming. I've initially booked for 60 people, but can go alot higher if required. The hotel arrangements will be the same with the Ibis hotel in Preston being the base and a coach will pick you up and take you to the conf in the morning and drop you back at the hotel later, and the usual freebies will be there as well as some special EduGeek 2010 t-shirts and clothing on sale.
    One idea I've had after meeting the Aruba guys earlier in the month is to have a Ruckus-Aruba 'shoot out'. So if you have a laptop please bring it and we shall see just what bandwidth we can squeeze out of one access point!!
    So who's coming then?

    P.S. For those new members here I forgot to add that the conf is free to attend as we pick up all the bills. All you have to do is get yourself here, but please note that it costs us around £35 per head, so there is no dropping out at the last minute unless you want a bill!

    PPS We unfortunately cannot pay for your accomodation. I would recommend satying the nght before and the night of the conference because it is a good laugh! (Ric_)

    I'm not sure she'd appreciate that - although it is a tempting idea!

    Surely the offer of a holiday with a load of computer-types in Chorley is every woman's dream?

    Could it be any further away from me? Maybe it's time to set one up in Wales.

    Has there ever been one in Wales?

    Yes it is. We go out for a meal after (we went to Le frog last year, and rather nice it was too). It is easier to get people in the Ibis because it is easy to find, cheap and right next door to a pub

    Ditto on that front, especially since it's the end of Spring Bank week. Though there are no plans in the "diary" to go anywhere I dare not assume I'm not doing anything
