It's proposed we once again rendezvous in the fine town of Swindon, only this time to incorporate a trip out into the Wiltshire countryside by bus to visit the fine Village of Aldbourne where in 1971 etc .... as well as the Loft of Joy, Liz's cooking and other fun.
But when would be a good time for us to set this trip in the diary.....
This year we met the first weekend in May.
But Transformation 2011 is 16th April, are our Scotish contingent coming down for that?

If I were to go to Swincon I wouldn't mind going on a jaunt to the nearby(ish) Avebury. I thoroughly enjoyed going on a field trip there when at high school circa 1990 and I reccommend it to anyone who also likes field trips and visiting historical sites.
I haven't decided about Transformation at this stage. My convention thinking is mostly focussed on Auto Assembly. But if it happened to be in the same general epistopic interface of the continumn my priority would also be Swincon II I would say.
After all, fun, good company, and a field trip back into the files of the Intelligence Task Force is hard to beat.
I can probably negotiate time off relatively easily I would think so I would say pick a date that is suitable for yourself and Liz and I for one will be quite happy to work around your good selves.
I might see if I can turn up for this one. I said I was going to go to the last one but ended up going cold on the idea at the last minute. If you confirm a set date then I will try and make more of an effort than what I did last time.
We shall bear your kind offer in mind. I shall see what I can do about getting tacit approval for leave (can't formally book it till February when the leave year starts) this week and then I'm sure the Scots lads will put our heads together and strategise about our travel plans.
I will probably be able to get the Friday/Monday off. Can't actually book it yet as our leave year begins in February, for reasons best known to no-one, but I don't think it will be too much of a problem. Scots Contingent deliberations will be held and we shall work out a plan of incredible cunningness.
