Can I just correct this? It is actually B5 7RN

Name badges remain a possibility - what do folks think?

I'd like to put faces to names so a vote for name badges.......................

"badges" don't have to be executive/expensive. Sticky labels hand written would suffice!

We're currently thinking of labels as opposed to badges. Individual badges would be a little expensive and if sticky labels are provided with suitable pens, crayons, felt pens etc people can create their own.

Perhaps all Kim would need is a picture of a fig roll and Bruce could have a picture of a green chartreuse with a Kwak chaser!

I also think badges would be a good idea. I have so many, many people to thank, and possibly buy a drink, that I would like to be able to put name to face. Might I also make a plea for the badges to include both name and Forum nickname, where the two are different, so as to be able to recognise Pals.

As to an avatar badge, possibly featuring chartreuse and Kwak, if it is to be an avatar, will others bring their own 3D glasses?

Trust Bruce to work Kwak into a discussion of badges. Badges are a must and must be readable from 5 yards say.

Then may I propose sandwich boards?

or customised sweatshirts?

I would like it noted that it was Mrs. Rat (Orson) who first introduced Kwak, that most estimable of Belgian beers, into this discussion.

Bearing in mind that Jack (Alan) sees the world through claret and blue spectacles, might I suggest the badges are also readable from 10 years!

OK, hopefully there will be no objection to name labels of some sort on the day.

Just a reminder to anyone who might be coming to this thread for the first time - the conference is open to all, old timers or newer members - details are in this link, but here is a reminder of the speakers

Thanks

I will make my own label from the dozens I seem to acquire every time I go to an event

Why don't all the pals do the same - it will save a lot of time at the conference centre

I think the labels will be very simple - a table with blank labels and pens for pals to add whatever detail they see fit! No objection if anyone wants to come pre-labelled of course

Still spaces for anyone who wants to come - details here or PM me if you have any questions

Will there be a list of attendees nearer the time?

So if there is such a list, and if you aren't coming, then you will know who you are avoiding.

:lol:
