It sounds like it will be worth the day off & fancy dress sounds like fun

If we can do this before February 2nd, BT will feature it on the external Comic Relief site they're setting up. Either way they're pleased to have me doing it and will be featuring it heavily internally.

Are we having costumes? I fancy the idea of doing the whole thing dressed as either Batman or a Muslim fundamentalist (with red nose, of course).

Right, can I get my hands on a V costume from V for Vendetta in two months then? :D

(I'm assuming we're counting anti-heroes as well, yes?)

It was decided that we would drink lots of beer and play lots of darts.
In some ways this was one of the most productive meetings I've ever been to. :)
I think the theme is defo Heroes & Villains or possibly 118-118 with us all dressed like those men with moustaches (or maybe a combo of both H&V and 118.) The starting station will probably not be Amersham, Heathrow T4 looks like a hot favourite at the moment.
One day I shall return!

Apologies for anyone that was looking for a serious route crunching session....

It turned into a mammoth darts and drinking session with lots of random people in the pub involved....... I must take more 1/2 days off work and do this again.... 8)
