A big thanks to Gary from Leica for supplying the venue on Saturday the 10th of September.

The idea would be to stay in London around Euston Station on Friday night, then up to Milton Keynes by train to Milton Keynes Central for the meeting, All space in Milton Keynes has gone due to an eminem concert. Then back to London on Saturday Night. For Sunday get an early start to a London Museum.

Content and proposed speakers and timetable to be published soon.

10th September

The first day of the meeting will be held at the Leica Head office in the UK based in Milton Keynes just outside London.

We will be hosted by Gary Hawkins,binocular technician for Leica. There is a conference room with digital and
slide projectors. The current Leica binocular/telescope products will be displayed, and Gary will be able to perform limited repair, or advise on service, of Leica or Leitz binoculars.

There will also be a bring and buy for those who want to sell some bits off.

Milton Keynes is under 1 hour from London by car or train, and Leica is a 10
