Re: DPNow South photo expedition?

Oxford sounds great esp for us Green Bods who use public transport as it is well connected to London. But anywhere with public transport links would be fine.

I am also planning to go for a day up to the Lake District this year as I have not yet been there. I am thinking of catching the night bus to Penrith and then back the following night - will make it a bit of a marathon but so what!

Re: DPNow South photo expedition?

Hey! I'm encouraged by the level of interest - Oxford looks like being the front runner, then

What about a potential date?

Re: DPNow South photo expedition?

Suggestions anyone? If it's a weekend, I can do most apart from the 11th August (probably going to sunny Devon for a birthday party), or the end of the month (there's muttering going on about the Great Dorset and I'm actually looking at motor home hire at the moment) could have a fortnight in France for those prices!

Re: DPNow South meet - weekday or weekend?

Can I just verify whether or not a weekday is possible? Is anyone definitely interested that can't do a weekday?

Re: DPNow South photo expedition?

I'd try on a weekday - unfortunately, my boss is having so much time off lately that I'm left to cover - still got over 20 days holiday left, but don't know when I'll get to take it

Exclamation Re: DPNow Oxford meet - proposed dates.

I'd like to propose the following dates:

Friday 3rd August

or

Saturday 4th August

These happen to be convenient dates for me and Julia! But if there are enough who can make one or the other, we will go for one and hoepfully anyone not able will be able to make it to a future meet!

If you could express your preference here, a choice can be made asap.

Thanks,

Ian

Just to make our position clear, Tim and I intend coming to this meet. I think its fair to say we would prefer to do the Friday. We look forward to meeting anyone who can make it.

Re: DPNow South photo expedition?

I think the roads would be less busy on the Saturday.

Mmm not too sure about that, but I'm pretty sure that the centre of Oxford would be even busier than it is on a weekday.
