I live about 10-15 miles away; but from this I reckon it's out of my
league as I'm (like most here) only a user:
The summit is open to the public, but it is not a conference, exhibition
or other audience-oriented event. Rather, it is an opportunity for
Ubuntu developers -- who usually collaborate online -- to work together
in person on specific tasks.

But if you run into any difficulties in getting around the area etc.,
drop me a note directly & I'll be happy to assist if I can.
