Um, I've looked the location on google maps, and it appears to be in the middle of some houses. Could someone double check the location. For the sake of GPS etc!

Thanks!

Ah, yes, Google gets a bit confused by the postcodes round there :( The postcode may be a bit off.

Try RG24 9ES instead.

This post code seems to take you to the Post Office which is almost next door to the venue.

It's really easy to find, but does feel like you are heading the wrong way! If you get onto Abbey Road and follow it you will find it. Possibly best to turn the GPS off when you get on to Abbey Road...

I've just been fixing an issue with the event creation scripts (which has only been broken since 2011! - nice that no one noticed until now :D ). In doing so I've updated the event page for this event and included Gary's postcode, as the display event page now shows a proper map rather than linking to the 1960s.

Any issues with any of the details, let me know.

While I'm at it, would people prefer it if there was a tick box on create event to allow the sign-up links to display? Also wondered about putting a start time as well?

We'll be there, with the new improved AntLog 3 (previews coming soon...).

Staying at the Premier Inn in the town centre on the Friday evening - anyone up for beer/pizza/etc?

The sign up list for this seems to have gone a bit mad again
