Yeah, it is a lot of people. I know it is a challenge, but I really  
want Bristol to pull through on this one. I really don't want to have  
to move the event to somewhere else just because we can't get a decent  
venue organised.

They could be good... but again they are quite far out the centre, and  
I really want somewhere within walking distance of the centre so  
people can explore bristol a bit and go out for meals and drinks etc.  
I'd rather not have everyone stuck out on a campus out of town.
