Getting to EMF camp with the Leeds and York Hackspaces


#1

Hi Andy here from Leeds Hackspace, I’m trying to get a mini coach / coach together to potentially pick up from York hackspace, swing on to Leeds hackspace and if you are interested swing by Manchester before making our merry way onto EMF camp.

I was wondering if this is something you would be interested in? Currently it’s working out at around £80 per person. but could be up to £100 depending on final numbers. Which is relatively cost effective against a standard train ticket without the hassle of trying to return on a Sunday. National express is around £40 or so then local connections etc.

If anyone interested could post an interest here would be great. This is something I’m keen to progress promptly as reservations need to be made.

Ideally if you are interested I could do with making contact by phone with a single point of contact within your space who would be willing to coordinate at your end. Monies would need to be collected promptly and in full to reserve a seat fairly promptly.

There is a thread on Leeds hackspace Google group with a few more details. The more the merrier and cheaper the costs.

Cheers Andy.

Personally, I am probably going to go via train, £80 isn’t much different
from the standard train fare.On 26 June 2016 at 07:07, onlyhalfdone@gmail.com wrote:

I’m interested, carrying stuff around a train station is never fun.

hi

it’s not particularly about saving money, although if we get the numbers it would do. It’s about convenience, I’m sure some of you will have experienced the 2 to 3 changes of train / tube and a approx 4 hr journey time. The cheapest fair without a railcard on the train is around £92 if you specify an exact time.

The more people who commit the more likely organising this will happen… Plus we can start the EMF experience on the way down, and on the way back you can all sleep like babies in the knowledge you won’t miss your stop.

I need to put a deadline on this, so 5th July is it! Anyone interested if you can express interest before then on here, I’ll post a link after that to Leeds hackspace to organise it.

Cheers

Andy

Dear fellow EMF delegates

The “party bus” is all booked! I will be sending out the itinery over the
weekend when I’ve had time to type something up and confirm a few details.

I need your contact name, number and pick up location (York, Manchester,
Leeds) for each person.

I’m afraid its time to pay the money its £100 and I need this within 24
hours please as I have have to pay the coach company. If you’ve not
received a PM with my bank details you need to contact me urgently to
secure your place.

Needless to say I have booked this bus and paid for it out of my own pocket
on the basis that everyone has committed to the £100, if there is any
problem paying please contact me immediately to resolve, there are a couple
of people who are on a waiting list but they will arrange an alternative
transport option if I don’t let them know in the next 24 hours.

Kind regards

Andy
