We won't be arriving until around lunchtime on the Friday so no help to you Penners :oops: Will definitely be up for meeting and hearing all about it over something long and cool to drink once we've got my dad's artwork settled into the exhibition room though! :D :dance:

If you find the rowdy (or possibly quiet) group of Australians at the quiz, you're welcome to join us :D

I'm thinking of going up on Thursday but may not be there in time for the quiz. What time does it start?

Carol and I will be checking in on the 7th! :D Not sure what time yet, but we'll both probably be at the quiz. I'm going to try to make a button with my avatar on it in the hopes that it will make me easier to spot (or avoid :lol: ).

I shouldn't be too hard to spot or avoid since I look similar to my avatar and will be wandering around with a camera. :lol:

The Programme's out! :dance: I'm quite pleased that most of the stuff I'm tied into is all down the same end of the building which'll make things easier for getting about - full programme's HERE and the hotel map's HERE.

And Strangely Fascinating is headlining in The Dysk! :P

I shall be in one of the Royal Art Museum rooms in (off?) Scoone Avenue.
Please drop by and say "hello" I just hope people won't be too disappointed with Angst - after all it is only my interpretation, and I know things aren't where they "should be".

PS I'll only be there on Saturday... :(
