To be honest, I hadn't thought about the impact of GDPR but spreading
the word has been a problem for their events in previous years. I wonder
if they've suffered the same wane in interest that LUGs have. As it
happens, without looking I'm not sure what FLOSS UK do.

Hopefully I'll see you there if I can go.

Good to hear from you.
