Open day 2012

Revision as of 22:59, 22 April 2012 by Marcus (talk | contribs) (moved Open Day 2012 to Open day 2012: Because Captialisation of Titles is Otherwise a Pain in the Bum (rules about capitalising subordinating conjunctions, principal words etc. are hard to remember))

We are just starting to organise the 2012 open day. If you've been looking for a way to contribute to Nottinghack, now is a good time to get involved.

See last year's open day 2011 for inspiration.

If you want to get involved but you can't be bothered to edit this wiki then please drop an email to the mailing list discussion here.
