Thinking back to other Events linked to previous Megas, they were either outdoor or in a large pub - and that was crowded :o

I like the two outdoor suggestions:

Flash Splash Mob in Bourton (well I would wouldn't I ;)) &
the CITO on Burton Dassett Hills - is there a lot of litter there then?

Both could display the CacheWalker banner if we want to advertise ourselves.

Has anyone talked to the committee about any of this yet?

Not that I'm aware of.

I haven't,but don't forget my original post was for a stall/table at the mega event nothing about hosting events.

So it's you we should blame for these Events ;) ;D
Lets go for a CacheWalker

I think the stall should be the main purpose , as Wrighty said... But what are we trying to achieve with it? Advertising the forum, website, events or ourselves all all of them?  :-\

Well I emailed the committee to see if it was possible (to have a stand, didn't mention an event) before we jump to any conclusions. I said we hadn't decided exact details, and that we were discussing it tomorrow.

Got a reply back just now, and they say its fine and they've pencilled us in for a stand  ;D But, for any reason, If we decide against it tomorrow, I'll just have to let them know  :) Plus as we had fundraising at the birthday event, we won't have to pay the fee to have a stand there  ;D

Have got another reply from Matt, the chairman.

As you know the event itself starts at 10.00 (3rd August, Heritage Motor Centre) but there will be set up time before that point. Dependent on how long we need to set up, they can organise our entry into the building before that point. So what do people think would be a sensible time to say for us to arrive for set-up?

He also said that he'd like to try and come to our skittle event to meet the group  :)

Sounds good  ;D I'll let him know 09:15.

And yes, that is an advantage about queuing  :)

Just thought I'd let everyone know of some good news  ;D

Just got an email from Matt, saying that they've definitely got a stand reserved for us!  ;D He also attached an application form, but it seems to be as if it were for a business (trade) stall, which ours obviously won't be  :D

Will reply asking what he thinks we do/don't need to fill in, and then it'll be sent off   ;D
