Hello,

As many of you know the plan is to hold this year's OSHCamp in the
north of England in Hebden Bridge, which is a pretty town (I might be
biased!) in the foothills of the Pennines and roughly half way between
Leeds and Manchester and easily accessible (<1 hour by train) from
both. It will also be a two day event and will take place over a
weekend, with provisional dates of 15th & 16th September.

I've uploaded a few photos of the venue to Flickr (more/better ones to
be uploaded in due course):

The venue also has a hostel on the site and I'll see if any sort of
group booking deal can be arranged.

Of course there also hotels and guests houses, or should you wish you
could even hire a canal boat.

Although this might be a bit of a waste if you're only returning to
sleep on it...

I think the plan will be to host talks on the Saturday, with hands-on
sessions on the Sunday. But obviously I'm keen to hear any suggestions
that people might have as to the structure, as well as themes and talk
topics. And as always, offers to present or run a workshop are most
welcome. Discuss here or e-mail me direct — whichever suits. I'll
provide updates to this list as and when plans develop.

Best,

Andrew
