We can do the 16th (with 2 ants :D ), but can't do the 23rd or 30th.

If there is anything I can help you with - let me know.

Paul - thanks very much for the offer, I'm certain that I'll have thought of a dozen things for you to do by the time the event rolls around :) I'll definitely bear that in mind.

With regards to times and venues - I have been effectively offered my college's sports hall as a venue, which is pretty much perfect as it's large, right off the motorway, has good parking and I can get it for a very preferential rate. However, that would probably have to be on a Sunday - most likely Sunday 17th July - since they have a regular booking for Saturday mornings, and I can see this being a problem for people who would have to travel quite a long way to get back and might have work the next morning. (I'd endeavour to get everything done by 5pm but it's still a long way back for some people!)

So, my question is...can people make a Sunday AWS? I'm aware it's not the norm, and I'd understand completely if people couldn't make it and it's by no means my only potential venue - I would try my best to get it on a Saturday if people can't make Sunday - but it's a question worth asking I feel.

Thoughts? :P

Sunday would be ok for me as its not too far, however public transport isn't great on a sunday after 5pm. Lets see how others feel.

Sunday would be fine for us as I don't work til 3pm on the Monday. We're only about an hour away anyway. I will need a fair bit of notice however, to get the Sunday off work. Saturday would be much more convienient.

Assuming I can make it, a Sunday would be fine for me. Would mean a leisurely drive down on the Saturday and if it was to finish at 5pm-ish, I would still get back at a reasonable hour for work the next day :)

Joey, if you don't fix a date soon, and it is a Sunday, I won't be able to go. Any progress?
