Southern Imaging day...

61 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Thanks for all of you postcodes. In order to suggest some site for this to be held, I need a little more information.

- How far are you willing to travel?

- Are you wanting a day including lecture, show and tell, or are you looking for a day for how to and then a night of giving it a go? ( If so would it be a good idea to hold on a camp site?)

The majority of people are from the south, south/east, with a handful south/west and south/north (birmingham ish), if that counts?

I know that it will be impossible to please everybody, so when i have the last bits of information, I will post a poll with the suggested locations, and you can vote where you think is best...

Has anybody considered when they think would be a good time for this event to be held?

Okay thanks people

Keiran :)

Doubt I would travel far to be honest, within 50 miles would best for me or I doubt I would attend.

To me portsmouth is dead center south :)

You cant really arrange this to be on a night as well as its a large chance it will be cloudy, I think just a day thing would be better unless it was held at a star party

I am prepared to travel up to 90 minutes from Swindon (post code SN5). I thnik it would better to just hold a one day event and if the skies are clear after the course, we could try out our new skills.

I'd go 50 miles (GU1), I'd go just for a day job much safer weather wise.

Not too far from Southampton. About 45 mins is my limit. A day would certainly be enough for me. Wouldn't be able to stay awake all night as well, lol.

An hour or so to 1.5 from RG1 during the day or weekend would be OK,

About 45mins to 1hr i would be willing to travel KT12, 1 day thing would be a good start, and if we all agree we could do another meet and do it at night if it loooks ok?

I would prefer a weekend and as much notice as possible as i work saturday morning so would have to try and get the day off?

About a couple of hours from Epsom would be good for me. I'm used to travelling for work, so it's not a problem. Could even offer lifts to those near by if that helps?

Okay well I spoke to daz, and I think picking a place between the south coast and london, as this is where the majority live... As some are only interested in a day, then its not too important where it is held, as long as it is easy to access. I will see if the location has a campsite near by though, just in case people wan to stay over.

Maybe around Guildford? That's fairly mid-way plus is handy for M25 and right on the A3?

Okay, has anybody ever booked to hold a event here? Im not quite sure how to go about it, I was just thinking you may have to pay to hire a room/ or ground here.... And also any ideas on a date?

You do have to pay to hire the facilities, but I would imagine it would only be about £10pp. Not bad for a day's hire. Use the 'contact us' button to enquire.

I reckon it will have to be a paying event to cover the costs of the venue and speakers. Not to mention a lunch if everyone wants one.

Can't remember what the original imaging day cost but i think it may have been something like £36 all in?????

Happy to pay - there's no free lunches expected here. a w/end would be good for me too.
