I trust that you all had a good Christmas and New Year and can start thinking about Memofest 2016!
I am still up for hosting it, confident as I am that folks are really looking forward to making the trip to Costa Del Aberdeen http://www.visitaberdeen.com/
Obviously, the event is only feasible if people are prepared to travel, though, in this instance, it is probably as easy for Claus to get here as anyone else, since there are direct flights from Copenhagen, but Aberdeen has good Air and Rail links with the rest of the UK.
So, I guess the first things are :-
Provisional list of attendees
Suggestions for agenda
I am pretty flexible around dates, the previous events have been September/October, so that seems like a good starting point.
To that end, if you are interested in attending Memofest 2016 in Aberdeen, can you please send me an e-mail/PM telling me how interested you are in attending. At this stage, I don't expect a definite commitment, it's just for planning purposes. It would help though, if you could try and quantify the probability of your attendance on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 = "I have a vague notion that it might", to 10 = "I'm on my way"
(with 5 not being particularly helpful).
Can you also suggest the best dates for you in September/October, along with any dates that you definitely can't
I realise that most people won't be driving and taking equipment by Air/Rail wouldn't be easy, but can you let me know what, if any, hardware you might bring along. Can you also suggest things that you'd like to see on the "agenda" for this year.
If you are interested in staying in Aberdeen overnight, please let me know, if you give me some idea of your budget, I can see what hotels could be suitable. If you let me know what mode of travel you would be using, it would help plan the start & end times etc.
