CoTech Gathering Autumn 2020?

Hi everyone,

On the monthly call yesterday, we briefly floated the idea of a gathering in the autumn. I was tasked with polling members to gauge interest so we’d really appreciate it if you could spend a minute filling out this form.
Of course, these are not normal times, and I for one am still coming to terms with the return to some sort of normality, so in some ways it feels crazy to be even considering it. Having said that, if there is a way to make it happen safely then it could be of benefit to people personally (socialising etc ) and to the network (hacking stuff, sharing learnings).
It may be possible to have a gathering at a place in Oxford I am volunteering at which has lots of covered outdoor space and is pretty close to the centre. I think we would need to limit numbers and consider camping as the primary accommodation option. Agile Collective peeps may be able to help with this but I’ll need to talk to folk first and see what’s possible.
So first step, fill out the form and we can see if it’s a goer!


I’d be on for this even if it ends up being a small camping event like the 2017 summer camp (which I sadly missed):

Just back from holiday and catching up on forum messages! Very much looking forward to the next CoTech gathering, and I’d certainly be up for camping somewhere I can access by car within 2-3 hours of the north east.

However, the thought of getting on a plane, train, or bus in 2020… :astonished:

thanks @chris and @dajbelshaw - take your point about travel 100%, I guess it is whatever you feel comfortable with and for most that will probably be private transport of one form or another (Oxford is only a day’s bike ride away)

and thanks to everyone who has posted so far… given it’s August and folks are away, I’ll leave this open for another week so please do fill out the form for you / your coop, it’ll really help me gauge whether it’s worth spending time on this!
