    meetups

    ok i know we have joked about it else where

    but does anyone over one day in summer hols want to meetup for drink or two in first ever edugeek meetup.

    I suggest somewhere in midlands as it most central place to everbody ok people in scotland sort rules you out (unless you want to make the trip) but looking at memebrship list we have fair number of us either in midlands or bording on the midlands..

    Too throw some ideas on places could meet how about somewhere like derby, nottingham (only cause there close to me ) but if anyone else has got any suggestions then thow the on the table

    So any takers...

    You could call it personel development and get school to pay for it

    Re: meetups

    ok if meetup in Leicestershire can probably use our ict rooms here..

    with number of pubs near by for refreshment..

    say probably as appying for new job at anothier school can you see it 'here's my notice can we hold a meetup inthe summer', or 'yes i accept the job can i use your ict room for a meetup' don;t think it would go down well. But if still here suspect i can book it out (just will not tell them about installing of software).

    Re: meetups

    lmao @ amsterdam lol

    School paying for something they dont have to? You guy are too lucky lol :P

    Maybe I'm just not demanding enough

    My vote is for scotland - just coz I've never been there lol - or Leics perhaps....

    Or you can come to wales lol

    Re: meetups

    We can host ... in October half-term if you want ... or spring half-term if October is too short notice. I have several rooms we can use.

    Corby, Northants ... just round the corner from Rockingham Speedway.

    What would people fancy ... just a day at the pub? Or actually having some hands on sessions with different machines ... proper workshops looking at some fun things?

    Or maybe just a lan party (Quake 2 anyone?)
