Tonight I got a call that the converted barn on my Dad’s farm where Geek Retreat was meant to be taking place has been hit by a bolt of lightning. It’s happened before. Such is the erratic and crazy Welsh weather
There is no major damage but it seems there are electricity and internet issues. It’s a bit to close to the planned date for me to risk going ahead so I will have to postpone Geek Retreat for the time being.
I was a bit peeved to hear this but a postponement has two hidden benefits…
One: We all get to go to attend some of the many social media events happening in and around the same week.
& Two: We can hold Geek Retreat closer to the summer and therefore reap the benefit of some better weather. Perhaps with the added bonus of an outside fire with some kind of acoustic jam session. So if you are a player of anything that does not need plugging in.. Bring it along.
My apologies to all the people that had put the time aside to get over to Wales on the 9th and 10th of Feb. I will of course keep you posted on the Geek Retreat Blog and www.Twitter.com/GeekRetreat regarding any further dates that crop up.
It’s the West coast of Wales. A beautiful spot with a view of the mountains and the sea. No charge for accommodation, just chip in with the coking and bring a bottle.
www.geekretreat.info is the main site. Email me there of here if you would like to be considered for a future date.
