I have no idea how, but I'm going to find some way to go to this if at all possible....

I hope you all can come.
I was a little reticent putting the word international before the title, despite the mix of demonstrator nationalities....
So far there has been interest from America ,Norway , Holland, Switzerland ,Czech Republic , Ireland , New zealand, Finland , Latvia, Spain , France .and of course the UK.
All in 2 days.
I am more than a little blown away, this looks like it is building up into something quite special.......

Hey Owen,

Couple of questions:

1-International symposium of the axe'n seax - Does that mean the focus will be on axes and Seax or is that just a cool name Happy

2-Do you have more details on the stuff that people intend to demo?

Trying hard to make this work for me, but I live across the channel now, not 10 min away from your place which tends to make things a little bit more challenging:)...

Cheers,

J
