Macclesfield Meeting

Thanks to everyone involved for organising an interesting meeting at Macclesfield yesterday.  Nice to see people I know who don't manage to get to many BAA meetings, and nice to go North occasionally too!

Macclesfield meeting

Thank you Gary,

It was very nice, to finally put some names to faces, and say hello. It was also good to catch up with your goodself.

The lectures were all high quality, though I found a couple difficult to get my head around. Stewart's talk was very good.

Great to meet you and your fellow Mac Astro members too. A very enjoyable weekend although I agree that a couple of the talks needed quite a bit of concentration! Very enlightening though and I know a lot more about the Standard Model of particle physics and its connection to current cosmological ideas than I did before the weekend.


PS - Thanks for posting the photos, even the one of me...
