Saturday 29th should be fine for me. :)

For now consider I'll be there, subject to my work hours not changing at the last minute. :P

Excellent - great stuff! Looking forward to seeing you there. Noticed you registered on the eventbrite page earlier, it's a really good way to keep track of how many people are coming :-)

If this happens to fall together I'm certainly interested in joining here (Lancaster - Manchester is pretty drivable). Although this is just some vague future planning.
Well it turns out that I'm most likely not going to be in Lancaster anytime soon. Although I *might* fly in the 29th, and still attend on the meeting.

I've managed to get the weekend off after speaking to my line manager today, so unless someone goes sick or something major happens at work, I'll be attending :P .

That's Amazing Kevin - it should be great. I'll continue looking in to venues - I'm open to suggestions though.

Hopefully we'll see everyone else register on the Eventbrite event soon too. If you have Facebook or Twitter, do your phpBB friends about the event, and if you could add something to your signature, that would be excellent too.

It will be a pretty casual meeting no doubt with some informal and loose discussion about phpBB and the future of it - essentially this is an event where you can get to put names to faces and network without any pressure or tight schedules and sessions to fit in to the day.

Activities suggested for the day time include the Manchester big wheel, and we will most likely reconvene in a pub or perhaps resturaunt in the evening as light fades. Feel free to put forward suggestions as the daytime activities are not really set in stone.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
