    Can't stay overnight unfortunately - I've got to get to Aldershot sometime after the MS event. Would be interested in staying for a few more hours if there's a gathering of fellow Edugeek members however

    Well I live in Reading so I stay overnight there quite often

    (There you go Ray, that should be enough for you to narrow it down...)

    For anyone looking for accommodation who is NOT driving, I'd recommend the Novotel Reading. It's a 4* hotel a few minutes walk from the train station, and there is a free shuttle bus from the station to Microsoft's offices at Thames Valley Park. If you don't mind sharing a twin room the prices are very reasonable.

    For those driving, take your pick of any hotel outside the town centre!

    I vote for this in Manchester, myself and DB went to one that was run on Server 2008 in the Odeon in The Print Works in Manchester and it was very well attended and a great event, so shame its down in Reading, don't think I can squeeze that day off, well I will have to play diary juggle but think I am on lock and unlock duty that day so as a result no me at work = no access to the place

    Thanks dude. I'll book Ric and myself in there for Thursday\Friday. If ayone wants to overnight I'd be perfectly willing for EduGeek to pay for 2 twin rooms for our members on Friday night if anyone want to bend Ric and my ear for a few hours over drinks and a meal.
    The further away people come from the more chance they have of getting a bed sounds like a fair way of doing it.

    And who would I get to share with

    Don't remember being offered a free room when the Edugeek conference was so far away for me that it was practically on another planet......

    Would love to come though - still not THAT near - anyone else going from down this way????? Willing to share fuel costs

    @ DB if and only if no one else takes you up on that i wouldn't mind staying over night especially if Shaun is going to be their and we can hit the bar again ;-) Find a nice young bird to share the other bed with even better (free aswell mind) *joke*

    @ Witch, everyone get's a free meal paid for by Edugeek in return :-) and thats not cheap from what i remember @ both conferences, amongst everything else.

    @ GATT, Oh yeah!! and what might that be then eh? hehe

    James.
