DRAFT AGENDA - Suggestions to webmaster 
A few ideas for how we might fill the days are shown below.

Things will be pretty fluid, but I wanted to try and highlight a few things that we should try to cover over the two days. Ongoing activities throughout the event will probably include :- 
  • A Game High score competition - any suggestions for the choice of game(s) ?
  • Claus will (hopefully) demo a new game conversion for MTX
  • Andy will (hopefully) demo his NEW game for MTX
  • Memotech Hospital - if you are bringing any broken MTX kit ?
    • If  not, I have a few outstanding jobs of my own to keep the doctors busy!

Feel free to suggest any other topics or volunteer to lead something interesting !

Soft drinks and snacks available throughout the day

Hopefully, we can cover most things on the Saturday, but I am quite happy to roll over into the Sunday, although I know that some folks will be travelling home early on Sunday, so may not have time to come back out to the house. However, I know a couple of folks will still be around on Sunday, so, if there is any interest, we can continue the "geek-meet" as time allows.
