Cheers!

There is currently 1 space for 4030 if anyone else wishes to come instead of the activity at the British Museum.

Hi. I sent the Churchill another email today referencing the flyertalk contract rate of 294 for a double including VAT. They did make the correction.

Have had a couple of questions about dress-code. I have put below what we will be wearing as a guideline but I want people to feel comfortable.

- Champagne reception: smart casual (i.e. no trainers/shorts etc, but jeans and collared shirt/smartish top fine).

- Any day activites e.g. focus group: casual is fine

- Virgin Atlantic: trainers and tracksuit style trousers - you need to be able to move ok, also clothes you don't care about too much (was advice I was given). Overalls will be provided.

- British Museum visit: smart casual

- 4030: smart (i.e. minimum collared shirt and jacket for men, cocktail dress or smart trousers/skirt for ladies).

- Gala dinner: smart-casual erring towards smart. If you feel like going all out and wearing a tux, that's fine

- Brunch: smart casual

Also, for any lurkers, there are spaces for everything except the AMEX-sponsored dinner on the Saturday night.

I just did have a look around at house and I'm more than happy to bring along such things. One question regarding this as we do have some amenity kits that are not entirely complete: is bringing along unused socks from those kits also fine? And is there any use for empty kits too (so just the bags)?

To be honest, I think even used socks are ok - they can be washed. Incomplete kits are fine, also any mini toiletries, shaving kits etc. I don't know if there is any use for just the bag - maybe bring if you have room but not if you don't. I can check with St Martins, but can't currently think of a use for them.

I will provide directions and map for everyone. Is only 1.5 miles so easy to walk, or cheap in a taxi (~8). Central line from marble arch is also possible.

Just a clarification question -- is the October 28th date include that night (as in if one has a 'stay' checking in on the 28th night & checks out on the 29th) -- does that stay count under the promotion?

Check out 29th October is last day for promotions according to a recent clarification email I received. So yes, checkin 28th and out on 29th would count as a night.

1) still some menu choices haven't been submitted. You will get a meal of my choice if you do not submit your meal choice through the website booking rom.

2) I have good news and bad news re brunch. The bad news is that it turns out the cost should be 50pp as they can't just take the difference between breakfast and brunch (as we originally told). The good news is that our company driven2travel will pay the difference between the advertised 30 and actual 50, for those who have already said they are interested in brunch.

3) I still haven't had everyone's travel details or whether people want to visit charity or British museum.

4) if you haven't seen, we have opened booking for our next event in August 2013: Abu dhabi and Maldives, Hyatt again. www.megado.co.uk
