Ideally a month+ allows to buy train tickets at a good price.
Is this going to be a mega mapping event of seeing what happens when most of
the great GB surveyors get together in one unmapped place (with some evolved
experience of OSMing)?!

As someone mentioned, a date can be harder than a location. Is it thought to
do this before SOTM(May/June) or after (July/August/later)? I would suggest
creating a doodle.com of the Saturdays and seeing who's available.
