Yup. Hotel and Eurostar booked. A few (10+) of us from HantsLUG (and one
interloper from WatfordLUG) are going "together". I say "together" in
quotes because we have booked to go to the same place at the same time
via the the same means of transport, we're not sharing a room or owt odd
like that. Despite what Jono may tell you about us Southerners.

The bigger the group the harder it is to get somewhere to eat - and
indeed drink! I went the last two years and if you go in a big gang some
restaurants have difficulty fitting you in.

That said of course if anyone is coming on their own or for the first
time (or both) then they can certainly tag along with us during the day.
It's always great to see a familiar face out there, you'd be surprised
how many people from the UK go!

Oh and some logistics info. The Novotel Tour Noire [0] does an okay room
rate and is fairly close to the centre of the city, that's where we are
staying. The Eurostar works out at £79 quid return from Waterloo to
Brussels Midi. We're going out lunchtime Friday and back Sunday evening.

Outward journey London Waterloo Int to Brussels Midi Depart: Fri 23rd
Feb 2007 - 12:40 Arrive: Fri 23rd Feb 2007 - 16:07 Duration: 02h27m

Return journey Brussels Midi to London Waterloo Int Depart: Sun 25th Feb
2007 - 20:28 Arrive: Sun 25th Feb 2007 - 21:56 Duration: 02h28m

Hope that helps.

Oh and if you see me attempting to buy books from Josette from O'Reilly
then please stop me. She has me in a perpetual hypnotic trance which
forces me to buy her books every time I see her. It's getting expensive
on book shelves alone!
