I didn’t know that you do not have internet access while at work…
So far the list of revellers going to Derby Makerfaire are:
As there are at least four people it looks as if we will be hiring a
crew cab van like we did for Brighton MMF
Here is the Van:
Ford Tourneo - 3 + 3 Van Ref 117
It’s £120 for the weekend not inc VAT and there is the dreaded deposit
and fuel…I estimate the following costs to be incurred:
£144 Van hire inc VAT
£40 - Fuel - maybe less…it depends on weight and driving style. I
promise to be light footed!
£300 - A shedload…better be no damn accidents!! Or we take out the
optional collision damage waiver for £14.40 which brings the deposit
down to £100
Therefore total costs would be: £198.40
and split 5 ways is £39.68 or split 4 ways…if Someone drops out the
cost is is £49.60.
Are you sure we want to do it this way and all go down together? It
is probably cheaper for Bob and I to hire a van and carry the gear and
those with cars drive and offer lifts???
I’m thinking of options. Whatever happens we are going to have to
hire a van to carry the stuff but we don’t have to get one with a crew
cab which drops the costs considerably.
Let me know what you think people

If there are only going to be three of us I won’t bother hiring a crew
cab van like we did for Brighton…Its expensive compared to just a
straight van. I must admit I had hoped more people would have been
interested in going…ho hum
Not everyone reads their private email at work.
I will be going.
