I gather no one else is going to this?

I will probably be over there from 10:30am, if anyone is interested in meeting?

Anyone? :)

Tristan, I'll be there.

I wouldn't be surprised to bump into Christian - he's normally about at these things.

I dunno exactly what time I'll arrive, so it might be best to do an ad-hoc thing - you have a PM with my mobile #.

Failing that, look for the D2H with the 80-400 pointed skyward :D
