    Failing this, there are plenty of B&B's around the area all findable on Google.

    THE COST FOR ANYONE ATTENDING FOR UP TO 12 HOURS WILL BE 15 PER PERSON, ANY LONGER THAN 12 HOURS AND THE CHARGE WILL BE 40 PER PERSON - NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE PLEASE.

    The hall fee's need to be covered and with a few of these meetings in the past, being short of bodies, I need to make sure the hall fee's are covered hence the price. It's basically 10 a day for sheer unadulterated enjoyment of the highest order.

    You will be issued with Black bin bags to be kept at your area and ALL your rubbish from the weekend MUST go in these bags AND TAKEN HOME WITH YOU!!! No exceptions to this PLEASE!
    Upon early leaving and on the Monday during clear up of the event you will be expected to tidy our area and remove cable ties, tape etc, stack your chairs and fold down your table before you go.
    It will be greatly appreciated if this is done xxx


    There are no other rules at this event which is what makes this event what it is, chilled, easy and sociable.
    The organiser accepts NO responsibility if you get injured and by coming to the meeting you accept full responsibility for your actions. You understand the dangers involved and will not nail my arse to a wall if you get blinded by a stray beam of nice coherent laser light - OK!!! if YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS THEN PLEASE DON'T COME.
    Please keep your equipment and area neat and tidy AND PLEASE, NO CABLES ACROSS THE CENTER OF THE HALL, ACROSS EMERGENCY EXITS & GENERAL DOORWAYS
    Come, enjoy and be very Lasery!

    Jim, whilst I appreciate that the hall fees need to be covered I worry that a 40 fee may put any 'first timers' off dipping their big toe into the murky lasery waters.

    Perhaps there is some middle ground here whereby any new attendees (who don't know what to expect) could be charged a lesser fee for a days attendance?

    I can't see that any of the regulars' would ever see you being out of pocket for a LEM, i'm sure most would stump up a few extra quid if it ever got to that situation. I'd hate to think that people didn't want to pop along as they'd be stung for 40 the first time they attended.

    Just a thought...

    I cant really be bothered anymore Jem to be honest.
    Its always a hassle, a hassle i don't need at the moment. If thats how it needs to be then fine, I'll do that. 10 for people attending for one day only i guess then?

    Hey guys, it took some talking and arranging, but i have invited Fred (the caretaker of the hall of DutchLEM) over and he is coming over with his wife.
    Not sure if he will stick around all day on the LEM, but he is looking forward to it and i just booked a ferry crossing in his name, so he better be ;-)
    Hope you guys like it, Fred is really a nice guy and his wife Janneke is a very nice woman, they always take great care of us.
    Just like Jim always takes care of us during UKLEM arranging the hall and such.

    If anyone knows of good places around surfleet to go and see (lakes, forrests, museum) let me know, because i can imagine he wants to make something of this mini holiday.
    For sure i know they will be joining in the curry evening and probably want to try fish and chips too ;-)
    And they are looking to meet you all guys after hearing our stories at the bar at DutchLEM.

    Tony, Rob, Daniel and Keith all have met him and i don't think i am wrong in saying he is a top bloke!
    They are staying in the same hotel as us, don't remember the name, it's 12 miles away from the hall (and certainly not the SHIT INN!).
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.
