Re: [The-Cambridge-NetSquared-Meetup-Group] CrisisCampCambridge - tomorrow!

From: Alan M J.

Hi Claire,

We're considering running more events, possibly an evening this week or 
next week. We were also thinking that if we found the right volunteers 
we could also host them in our office and run a full-time, weekday 
CrisisCamp co-ordination role from our offices.

I will be coming to the next NetSquared meeting on the 24th too.

Cheers,

Alan
