> Here's how to find us:
> First, find the OU campus as described at 
> Enter the campus (signposted Open University, not Open University East), 
> via Brickhill Street (V10).
> Take the middle lane past Security (on the left), through the barriers, 
> and then turn right on to Ring Road East.
> Ahead you will see the road narrows to single lane on your side of the 
> road, where there are no entry signs.   Just prior to this is the 
> entrance to a car park on the left (marked Inner East Parking on the 
> campus map).
> Take this left turn and head to the top left (North West on the campus 
> map) of the car park.
> The meeting is in the south east section of the Venables Building, 
> nearest the Inner East Parking on the campus map.
> Take the path (marked in orange on the campus map) west from the car 
> park toward the centre of campus.
> Take a right under an archway in to the courtyard area bound by Venables 
> South, East, and South East, keeping right (heading North East on the 
> campus map), behind the building section marked South East.
> You will find a double door on your right, which is Entrance G at the 
> South East section of Venables Building.
> We'll see you there, as these are usually access controlled doors, so 
> you will probably need to be let in.
> If you haven't attended one of our meetings at the OU before, you might 
> want to ask for someone's phone number in case you have trouble finding
> us. If you need a lift to the meeting, please ask our mailing list or
> IRC   channel (see http://miltonkeynes.pmorg/ for details).
> I hope to see you there
> Tony
