I just finally had chance to sit down and read through this thread, hoping that I'd be able to make it. It does look like I'll be free the weekend of April the 22/23.
My wife suggested we use it as an excuse for a proper break. We're looking a either staying at the Green Dragon Inn for a few days or possibly getting a holiday cottage in the area for a week or so (any recommendations?).
So it looks like I might finally be able to make it to a gathering and get chance to meet some of you!
