Venue Discussions

This paragraph is now historical interest only. There's a solution that seems to be working well for now.

A thread started which established several things:

and has been used once. It is a good venue.

  • Some people felt (plus others referenced in emails unavailable to the archive) that having a presentation in a room followed by optional pubs/whatever afterwards would be good. Other people suggested alternative pubs.
  • Valley Technology offered sponsorship for tea/coffee/bikkies if a presentation venue can be found, with no attribution sought or wanted
  • Peter George has volunteered a room and computers at Net Resources however there is only room for twenty people. (No wheelchair access unfortunately).

Suggestions

It would be nice if you guys have upcoming.com or eventful account so I'm alerted when you meetings are taking place. I'm very keen to attend your next meeting and maybe in the future offer some meeting space. Jamie from Terinea.

This was done for a while but did not generate any new interest. We will be looking at tidying up the webpage and reviewing our on-line presence during 2012.
