ManLUG normally meets at 14:00 hrs on the third Saturday of the month with the odd exception like December which would be too close to the Christmas festivities. We try and get two willing volunteers to give a talk for each meeting, but sometimes this is hard work. Installfests are usually held around twice a year. (April/October).
After the formal meeting we usually head off to the Sandbar for drinks and informal banter.
As a matter of policy, the University have asked us to bring some photo identification to show the porters if we are asked. Please remember that the University is kind enough to let us use their facilities without a fee, so perhaps we can agree to this gracefully.
