My first bake off, of many to come.  I have had some advice from Lurch how to set this up, so hopefully we will keep everyone happy.

On Saturday 8th June from 11am till late say 7pm?   

Due to having a small house, I have access to a big ground floor room 5M x 10M in the local PUB, ideal if you want to bring some BIG and loud speakers.

Lots of Snacks and Drink provided, plus cheap drinks from the Pub. (overnight rooms available, if too stoned to drive home).

Space for about 20 bodies plus any equipment you want to bring.  Easy access and nearby unlimited parking.

Happy to bring your music, your kit and swap in place of, or add onto  . . .

I will be having a Digital vs Analogue Bake Off theme - so bring your best of both and see which gets the public vote?

Looking forward to a great time meeting fellow Wig-Wammer's and chatting about anything Hi-Fi or otherwise . . .

I'm up for this, if there are rooms available to stay overnight. I can bring my Oppo dac or EE minimax phono.

Do we need details of the pub for accommodation ? Or will it be sorted?

Station doesn't look too far away and I'm sure a pick up could be sorted nearer the time.

Hi Greybeard,  Yes you are on the guest list.  I am asking the pub if I can reserve any rooms they have left as they are showing fully booked on the web.  I will let you know . .

Hi Lawrence,  You are very welcome.  Yes the nearest station is Henley on Thames about 500 meters flat walk, or we can give you a lift, or a Taxi from Reading station is £15 from Henley Taxis.

Hi again Greybeard,  Just our luck, there is a function on that night locally so the Pub is fully booked.  But there are lots of Airbnb, guest houses and hotels in town and nearby.  We can arrange transport if you need it.  Just let me know what you need?

Thanks Chris, it sounds like you've gone to a lot of effort for your first bake off (it will my first one attended too!) so I really hope to be able to attend. I'll confirm soon. I should have some interesting small items I can bring too.
