Other evening events
The games event is a good way for newcomers to meet people -- should we do it earlier instead of on the Sunday? On the other hand, it works badly for existing contributors who already know each other and just want to go to a bar somewhere.
Discussion of Kro Bar for preregistration event.
Possibility of a trip to the Curry Mile as an evening event.
The venue want us to close registration a few weeks before the conference starts so they can be certain about room allocations. This isn't how GUADEC usually works -- Sam will go back & see how we can avoid this while meeting whatever restrictions they have.
Next meeting is Monday 8th May at 18:00 BST
