Future Events [May. 28th, 2006|06:04 pm]
As usual, I have a couple of things planned, in case anyone fancies joining me for any of them:

Wantage Triathlon (11th June). Hilary and Jo decided to enter this triathlon, and somehow I ended up agreeing to do a team triathlon with Dom and Gillian (one person does each event). I'm doing the run, so I'm trying (but not always succeeding!) to go out for a run every couple of lunchtimes. I've also been doing lots of cycling, to help the others with their training, which has generally been fun. We're running out of nice ~40km cycles from Oxford though!

ApacheCon EU (27 June - 1st July). This is in Dublin, and I'll be there Tuesday-Saturday. If anyone else is going, shout. Otherwise, anyone got any suggestions for places I should go and see if I have some spare time?

Cornbury Festival (8th and 9th July). Once again, there's a very nice music festival taking place in the field next to my office. I'm planning to go both days (haven't decided if I'll "camp" in the office, or head home and back overnight), but I can get (somewhat) cheap tickets for either one or two days, if anyone else fancies coming. It has Texas, and a stage run by Truck, so you know you want to come :) Hopefully I won't get sunstroke this year!

Edinburgh Festival (dates TBA, but probably Thursday-Sunday). After last year's storming success, we're hoping to go up again this year. Olly hopes to sort out crash space at his parents (cheers Olly!), so it's looking good so far. Prod zihuatenejo if you fancy joining us for a frantic weekend of shows and drinks.

Punting. As soon as the weather stays stable enough to predict a nice weekend, I'm planning to do lots punting. Shout if you're in Oxford on a weekend and fancy joining me :)

Oh, and I quite fancy going to a few of the proms this summer. If you have some in mind that are good, prod me, otherwise I might just jump on the 5.20 ish train to London from work if the mood takes me!

I will definitely be in Japan and unable to make Cornbury.

However, I'm all up for some promming.

We'll have to send you pictures of the bands then, to make you all jealous :)

How much notice will you generally need for proms?

And I will make sure to send you pictures of Japan in return. :p

Weekend ones might need a bit of planning, but most weekdays should be fine--the fourth Wednesdays and first Thursdays of a month might be out, but other than that I don't do much in the week.

Cool. I'll try to remember to prod you when we decide to go :)
