I think this idea is GREAT! A badge with the logo and EAB nick.

Sounds like a good idea to be honest, but who's gonna make them?

Do a graphical suggestion and then everyone will just add his/her nick to it, print it and put to his own badge (they are cheap and you can buy them everywhere). It is not needed to have strictly uniform badges (circle, square, rectangle...), but we should have a uniform graphic design (colors, logos, font) for quick identification.

Nice one, only 30 mins up the road for me.

Consider me there unless work takes over as it did at your last event in Enfield.

I'll definitely be there for at least one of the days, quite possibly both. I was thinking of visiting the museum of computing this year anyway so this was a really easy decision!

Those of you that are coming for more than one day and planning on staying, watch out as there really is very little if not nothing to do in Bletchley. It's just charity shops and Pound Savers. Milton Keynes is your best bet really (10 mins max from Bletchley), but the bits worth checking out are pretty spread out so bring some wheels if you can.

Best to do some research as I don't know what you're all into (apart from the obvious). Having said that...

Shopping - MK is excellent if you like this - the Gamestation is good as well (good window display which always has the best stuff in it).

Walking - believe it or not, MK has a lot of decent routes which will all make you think twice about what you have been told of the man made mesh of roundabouts. Maps are available if you're into this.

Drinking - there are some pubs in Bletchley but I can't vouch for them. Bars in MK are plentiful but not my cup of tea at all. Although I am from Bucks, I live in Yorkshire and enjoy cask ale in real pubs. In fact, I probably live in Yorkshire BECAUSE I enjoy cask ale (crikey!). So you can probably guess what I think of wine bars...

Countryside - lots of it within a few miles. Classic Buckinghamshire. If you have a car, what's stopping you? The National Trust website is worth a look.

Activities - in MK there is an Xscape, so you can play glow in the dark bowling, climb an indoor wall, go skiing on an indoor slope with real snow and experience sky diving indoors (look it up). None of which is cheap, but all GOOD!

MK Dons are also based here (between Bletchley and MK) - the stadium is excellent (new a few years ago) and they're actually pretty good. It's the weekend so you'll get a game.

There's a overground (in the trees) obstacle course as well - like a mini Go Ape. Can't remember what it's called.

Eating - loads of places. Best food is found in out of town village pubs imo. I said pub again...

Cinema - two in MK - both alright - overpriced as always. Neither show anything other than latest movies (so no arthouse, classics or world cin).

Erm, that's all that comes to mind at the moment. My mum makes an ace cup of tea as well.

I will resist commenting on the football club but what I will say is that if this event is in June then you won't be getting a game

Nice post though - very informative

Ho de ho - your avatar says it all GH. Checking dates obviously escaped me in the small hours of the morning!

In that case, as it's in June the car park will be empty so you can use it to go to the huge Ikea next door instead. Cheap hot dogs. Don't knock it.
