Please register if you wish, even if there appear to be no tickets left a waiting list will form, and I am hopeful that we can accommodate any number of participants inperson that wish to attend. If the tickets sell out, those on the waiting list will be contacted as soon as possible to make any necessary arrangements
Saturday 26 May 2012:At 12:00 we will gather at the Orkney College UHI in Kirkwall, and use an hour or so to decide what sessions there are going to be, and in what order (a standard GovCamp process), and then those sessions can run until about 17:30. In the evening, we will surely find something musical, theatrical or educational to do.
Sunday 27 May 2012: At 10:00 (or thereabouts) we will gather again at the College, and have more GovCamp sessions and/or some sort of wrap-up process until about 13:00. From then on, those who have to travel home get get on their way, and those who live in Orkney can attempt to recover before work on Monday!
If you are staying on on Sunday evening there is an Orkney Storytelling Festival Event "Transatlantic Tales" at 8pm at the Standing Stones Hotel, Stenness. This event will also be open to remote attendees. Admission is by donation. Run by the Orcadian Story Trust. @OrkneyStoF
