Puntcon 12:

Home before darkness. With ducklings

22 June 2014

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Conferences are fun, but don’t have ducklings. Or champagne. So the legendary Geek Punt Picnic has morphed into PuntCon, the Cambridge leg of the alternative conference circuit.

Please fill in the eventbrite page if you want to book a place in a punt.

You are invited to PuntCon 12 or the Twelfth great geek punt picnic, to take place on or about the River Cam on the afternoon of Sunday June 22nd 2014.

We will be heading upriver rather than along the backs – more picnic places, fewer tourists.

As before, turn up outside the Mill public house on Mill Lane between 1200 and 1230. We will head off between 1230 and 1300 – if you are late you can walk up river and catch us as we don’t punt very fast!

Bring something to drink and something to eat.
I will provide some bread, plates, cutlery, glasses and more food/drink. We will take as many punts as we need [one for every six/twelve people] and head up river to a convenient picnic place [eg Grantchester Meadows] where we will eat/drink/carouse.

We normally get back around 1800. Those heading back to the station can be dropped at a bridge within walking distance.

Post punting we have the option of retiring to the pub and letting Sunday evening happen around us.
