Great :)

I'm currently talking to Jon about confirming the venue. I intend to
get an announcement out this weekend and create a Facebook event, etc.
If other people could add the announcement to other sites and blog
about it that would be great.

The venue doesn't allow under-18s after 7pm, so I'm cc'ing Tim from
DFEY-NW to see if he wants to arrange something earlier for younger
people, if there's a demand.

Since it's a pub the start time doesn't matter as much as it did for
the BBC, but does 7pm sound okay or 6pm?

It would be really nice to have some posters and some buttons to put
on blogs to publicise the event. Can someone volunteer to come up with
