Well I'll be back in the UK in October for a while...

If we get a good amount of people we might try out Zifferblat. The only problem with that is that it's in the EC are (can't remember if it's Old Street or Farringdon, but it makes no difference) and so it's a bit off the beaten* track.

You know, that might be the best idea.

If we go for a date change, will it be before or after the conference in Iceland? That seems a rather important decision...

Woops, I missed this. I am busy on the 29th, but can otherwise be around on that weekend. But am also happy to postpone and find something that works for as many people as possible.

Ok, I have officially cancelled the holiday days I had set aside for this so yeah... :cry:

The good news is that I, more often than not, have weekends off work as standard now, so if/when we agree on another date, I should be ok to come.

OK, Well let us now commence the argument of what are the new dates to aim for. Just for information there is a bank-holiday at the end of august in case you're in the UK, and don't have any vacation days.

Mon 28th Aug - Summer Bank Holiday - England, Guernsey, Jersey, Northern Ireland, Wales

So the adjacent weekend is an option? I'd like to wait at least a few more days before giving an opinion, I might be able to squeeze in somehow.

What sort of time frame are we thinking about? Definitely the summer or potentially in autumn? I'm free the following weekends, but I might end up working the last two/three weeks of September. Most weekends that I haven't listed, I'm only busy one of the days, so if they work for people, I can just come on the other day.

22nd-23rd July
5th-6th August
12th-13th August
2nd-3rd Sep
9th-10th Sep
7th-8th Oct
21st-22nd Oct
28th-29th Oct

Well, the first option seems out of question now. I don't think I'll be able to come in second half of October or later, as I'll likely be busy on Fridays and or Saturdays from then on. (no PG conference for me :( ) And August seems too early to do it, since it'll give us just a month or less to organise. So what is the new date?

Let's vote? Whoever thinks will come or likely come, state the preferred date. I've reduced the options for simplicity, but feel free to state something else, maybe that'll turn out to be more fitting for more people.

9th-10th Sep
7th-8th Oct
