Would just like to give my thanks to Chris for his driving efforts,
and Dave for his organisation of the trip.
My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and hope that this
sets a standard for future events!

See bottom post below :-D
From: Connor Birch
Where and when will we meet up?
Are we planning on doing anything afterward, eg going for a pub meal?
Since we have 2-3 hours travel time I feel it would be silly to try too
hard to stick together so I suggest the following flexible meetup options.
10:30 am Arrive at car park/ ticket booth. Meet, greet, study maps for a
few minutes then tear around like a kid in Disneyland.
12:30 Meet hut 4 "The Gallery Restaurant"
3:30 pm Arfternoon Tea!
4:30 pm Official Kickout Time.
Arrive home around 6:30-7:30 pm
-- Notes --
+ For evening meal and further evening entertainment email or chat to
Connor during the day.
+ Richard; that is great that Staffs LUG is coming too. Us sluggers
should wear our Linux badges and hats; except I don't have any! What a
shame I don't still have my old North Staffs Polytechnic sweatshirt any
+ I have one space in my car going from Shrewsbury then via Bridgnorth.
+ I do not have a confirmed list of attendees but I will have in the
next couple of days.
+ My wife made a good suggestion that drivers exchange mobile phone
numbers in case of problems.
If anyone has any better or different suggestions please feel free to
reply or call me on 01743 248 327
07951 076 954
I was there earlier and I didn't see any sign of any parking restrictions.

Just to let you know that I've had confirmation from Bletchley Park with
regard to tickets purchases, and it appears that they don't get sent out,
we pick them up on the day.
So anyone who is going under their own steam will either have to purchase
their own tickets or wait for me to get there.
Please let me know your preferences.
Also, I haven't had too many responses with regard to the mini-bus yet..
Can you let me know as soon as please, as I need to give Chris numbers.
(Send me an email, not to the list)
Here's the list of people wanting to go with any additional persons.
Please can you let me know if any of the details are wrong or you can't go.
I am planning on ordering the tickets on Thursday as there is a 7 day
shipping, but we will get £1.50 saving on each ticket this way.
The list is:
Adam E (+1: Adult)
Ben S (+1: Adult)
Dave R (+1: Adult)
Chris (+3: 2 Adult 1 Child)
If I don't hear anything I will take it that everything is ok.
In this evenings meetings we've been talking about the visit to Bletchley
Park and are wanting to know who is thinking of going.
We are thinking of doing a car share idea as the train tickets seem a
little on the pricey side. (Unless someone can get a good deal ;o) )
The event takes place on Saturday 27th March, with an admission fee of £10
If we can have peoples yes/no's by the 15th.
