Hi guys - we are pretty much done on organising the Retreat for this
The food is all ordered (thanks for the responses on food preferences),
the Tipis are due to go up on Thursday. The weather looks OK, here is
the link for anyone that wants to get updates before they come:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/308?area=SO21. We will have to
walk across grass from the Tipis the conference facilities so it would
be a good idea to bring waterproof jacket/umbrella and waterproof shoes
just in case.
When you get to the Hursley site you will need to follow the signs to
the 'Club House', it's quite well sign posted and well away from the
main buildings. It would be great if everyone could make it in time for
the evening meal on Friday - this will be at about 19:00.
Just as a reminder - check this site for details about how to get to
Hursley and other info http://sites.google.com/site/apacheretreat/home
If you are planning to come and have not signed up on the EventBrite
site - please do so now :-) http://apache.eventbrite.com/. The caterers
can deal with a few extra bodies but not many....
In terms of what we do for the weekend - just like always with Barcamps
- I don't have a plan :-) In fact it's completely up to you. If you want
to sit in a corner and code for the weekend that will be fine. If you
want to play pool all weekend (yes, there is a pool table) that will be
fine too. If you come prepared to talk about what you are doing that
would be great.
Send any questions you have to this list, I'll be watching it and
picking them up.
