Are there any meeting arrangements? or is it all down to "spot the Oly" ?

There are meeting arrangements. I've not generally published them because I was waiting to hear back from the organisers as to the opening time.

I believe the venue opens at 10am (it is not confirmed anywhere, but that is the normal time of opening on non-event days), so I was going to suggest meeting around then.

I'm not sure where you will have to buy entry tickets, but assuming it is a pedestrian entrance (don't buy tickets as you drive in) I am suggesting we meet near there before entering the venue (I'm sure you will be able to spot a gaggle of Oly's a mile away). If there isn't a defined pedestrian entrance the next best place to meet is the bungalow (entrance to the bunker).

If you are interested in attend, just send me a private message and I'll make sure your kept up to date with any developments and provide you with my mobile number in case your delayed / lost / can't find us.

Forgot to mention, I believe they are only accepting cash for entry tickets (7 for adults).
