The pub/hotel has a large carpark , im sire you'd be ok to pitch up in a quiet corner if you asked the manager nicely. :)

Ian have you seen Kieran's post in the 'two places left' thread? He's asked to be taken off the tentative list (which Alex was including in the main count) so that place can be yours if you want it?

I have placed you on the Tentative list , so you have a spot if you could confirm , i'll move you to the confirmed list :)

Thanks Dave for pointing this out I hadn't read Kieren's post.

OK, I'll commit to this, put me on the main list. Must remember to book a room. Is it ok to pay you at the Bolton event?

Take care when choosing your room. The online booking software is a bit weird. :shock:

You can get a room for the two nights with breakfast at the inclusive price of £117. This price shows up on two deals. With one deal you have to pay now and with the other you can pay at the hotel. The deals otherwise appear to be exactly the same. #-o
There is so much wonder in the universe; why should you want to imagine that there is more?

I ended up paying now, but with the option to cancel with a full refund up to the 26th. As you say, all a bit weird. £117 for two nights with breakfast seemed ok.

IMPORTANT

My apologies for this duplicate post. All of my BeebOPLs are now sold or spoken for. I have the parts left for just one more unit, following which I am not planning to do another run of PCBs.

Someone on Facebook wants the final kit. However, at the ABUG meet up in Bolton, someone asked me to bring them a kit in January. The problem is, I can't remember who that was and, therefore, I do not know whether or not that someone has reserved one of this current batch. If that person was you, please can you let me know if you want one as soon as possible.

I wasn't planning on bringing any kit to this meeting, but then I started thinking... I've got my Rigol DS1052 scope which has one non-working channel, and I want to at least attempt to fix it. Having another working scope to test it with would be useful - anyone up for giving me a hand with figuring out what's wrong with it at the meet up on the Saturday?

Also... any chance of a lift from the station? [-o< :D

The hotel - is it the one by the roundabout on the A50 Markfield Lane junction? Google street view tends to support this idea but the hotel website puts it at the other end of Markfield Lane after the farm shop. :?

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

  1. I can pick you up from the station
  2. I can bring my 'scope
  3. I can sit with you and look suitably baffled whilst you try to fix your 'scope
I assume that 1 and 2 will be of more assistance to you than 3. :?

Just booked a TWIN at the Fieldhead Hotel, see you all saturday.
I will hopefully be programming on a laptop and may have a beeb in need of fixing, other than that I won't be bringing any kit unless otherwise requested.
