Hey a newbie here to ABUG. Can you put me down for Fri, Sat and Sun please!

I would love to bring my Electron, Beeb and A3010. So presume I need a table (not sure how big a full table is)?
Great to see a new face. The hotel tables are 6ft long, so should be enough room for your kit. We have 26 of those tables. Last time, most of the additional tables that z0m8ied0g kindly brought along where almost as big. So, hopefully, there should be plenty of space for everyone once again.
That's amazing. Thanks for organising this. Have booked my room using the discount code! Really looking forward to it. :D

Cheers!
Gavin.

Well . . . As I've booked the room you'd better add my name to the list :D please . . .

I'll bring my own table again. Just hoping the weather and traffic are going to be favorable!!

Me please! I can do all 3 days again! I will again bring some 'odd balls' for us all to have a play with, as well as some Acorn machines. Hoping to get the ROM upgrade for my Archie, so maybe this time we could actually add the card! 1 Table please :D

I'll bring along the tables if I can, I've just bought a new car (which is an estate) so it depends on how well they fit inside compared to the van.

I've booked the hotel for Belinda and I and our puppy (who will be 9 months old by then) Phoebe.

So please put me down for a table for the whole weekend. I'll even bring my own table if that helps you out.

Thoroughly looking forward to this one, and nothing's going to get in my way this time as the builders finished.

That was quick. I barely left it for 5 minutes and when I went back to the first post my name was already in the list.

Blimey.

Brilliant and speedy service.

Thanks for organising this.

Sadly, no. She's got a yellow ID tag though. Not the official Phoebe colour but close enough.

Newbie to ABUG here. From The Netherlands as some of you may know.
I've just booked a double room at the venue for my wife and myself for the whole weekend.
We plan on going by ferry with our own car so we can move around freely.
I will take some gear but not too much. I guess half a table would be fine if there is still room?

This venue is larger than at the other ABug events, so there are normally only full tables.

A full table is fine too of course, as long as I don't take much needed space from someone else :mrgreen:

Not sure what it means though. Google Translate wasn't able to help with that.

At the end of the last ABUG, there were a considerable number of snacks left over. I had indicated at the time that I would keep these and bring them to the next ABUG. For various reasons, I now realise that is likely to prove impractical.

I have therefore estimated the value of left over snacks at £46.63 and have added that back into the kitty.

I hope that this is acceptable to everyone.

Can't complain, but I'd also be happy for you to just keep the left over snacks, take them as a perk of organising the event.

(£46.63 seems a very acurate "estimate")
