Simply Paul: With the 'archive inside 30 days' Groundspeak guideline, it's time to say Thank You For Coming again and put this event to bed - even though there are a few travel items still booked in. The venue was checked before we left and everything had gone, so please inspect your caching bags and get them Retrieved. Thanks.

Apologies again for the bar queues. We were a victim of our own success - although the landlord knew we were coming and had extra staff on - but the main problem was another large group came in, unannounced. Ah well. Even though I didn't get time to order or eat, I'm told the food and drink were both well worth the wait. Thanks to landlord Mike for looking after us.

Sorry too for the lack of singer. We'd booked someone but it didn't go to plan and our Plan B (thanks for trying, cheesescones) wasn't available at short notice. It would have been great to launch the Geolympix with a swing and some Swing, but it was not to be. I hope Geolympix Geoff was enough of a stand-in [:)]

Thanks again everyone who came along and helped give us a great start. For those who missed this event (and Countdown to the Geolympix #11 - Oxford in August) we're in Berlin in September, London in October, New York in November and Poole in December. See you somewhere before the Geolympix itself, we hope!
