CRM User Group Social Evening March 2016 in Reading

If you are coming to our event in March (or even if you are not), you might like to come along to the social evening as well, to meet up with others who are also fans of Dynamics CRM.

A less formal environment than the events themselves can make it easier to break the ice and get to know people a bit better, so you feel able to reach out to them when you need help with something later on.

March 15th in Reading

Our unofficial Social Secretary Andrew Bibby has booked a table in a buffet restaurant in the centre of Reading at 7:30 on Tuesday March 15th.

The restaurant is called Cosmo and is part of a chain across the UK. They do a fixed price, self service buffet with a real cross section of pan-Asian food from Indian curries, through Thai and Singaporean dishes to Japanese sushi and Chinese favourites, as well as Italian food, a range of salads – basically something for everyone. There are also menus for made to order items if you really can’t find something on the buffet, and restaurants are fully licensed with a range of world beers, wines and soft drinks.

Location / address details are here: Cosmo Reading, and you will see it is only a short walk from the train station or from many of the central hotels.

Please sign up in advance through the Eventbrite page for the CRMUG Reading dinner where you can pay for your meal in advance in order for us to book a table for everyone. We have a fixed-priced all-you-can-eat menu that at £13.99 per head. You will be responsible for paying for your drinks on the night and contributing to a tip if you wish to.

Eventbrite - CRMUG UK March Meeting - Dinner & Social Evening in Reading

We hope to see a great turn out of CRMers like you who want to mix with their peers in a less formal atmosphere than the main meeting the next day. As people will be re-filling their plates periodically, this also gives you an opportunity to move around and meet new people after each course (maybe we should make it mandatory?). If people want to continue longer into the evening we might stick around in the restaurant or move along to another venue.

CRMUG Social Evenings March 2015

If you are coming to either of our events in March (or even if you are not), you might like to come along to one of our social evenings as well, to meet up with others who are also fans of Dynamics CRM. A less formal environment than the events themselves can make it easier to break the ice and get to know people a bit better, so you feel able to reach out to them when you need help with something later on.

March 17th in Reading

Our thanks to (unofficial) Social Secretary Andrew Bibby for organising this one. After the last meeting in Reading, we felt there was maybe reluctance on the part of some members to come along for what seems like a night of sitting around drinking, with no great opportunity to get food at any point. To that end, Andrew has booked a table in a buffet restaurant in the centre of Reading (where some of use ended up going for food last time) at 7:30 on Tuesday March 17th.

The restaurant is called Cosmo and is part of a chain across the UK. They do a fixed price, self service buffet with a real cross section of pan-Asian food from Indian curries, through Thai and Singaporean dishes to Japanese sushi and Chinese favourites, as well as Italian food, a range of salads – basically something for everyone. There are also menus for made to order items if you really can’t find something on the buffet, and restaurants are fully licensed with a range of world beers, wines and soft drinks.

Location / address details are here: Cosmo Reading, and you will see it is only a short walk from the train station or from many of the central hotels.

As people will be re-filling their plates periodically, this might also give you an opportunity to move around and meet new people after each course. (maybe we should make it mandatory?)

Please sign up in advance through the Eventbrite page for the CRMUG Reading dinner. There is a £5 deposit per head for larger groups, so we are asking for this up front. Since CRMUG is a purely voluntary operation, by users, for user, we have no funds for this. While Andrew is organising this, we can’t expect him to pay this out of his own pocket. Dinner is £13.99 per person; you will pay the remaining £8.99 on the night.

We really look forward to seeing as many of you as possible for an enjoyable evening.

March 11th in Edinburgh

Rather than have a social evening the night before the Edinburgh event, since fewer people seem to stay over for this one, we will adjourn to the pub after the main CRMUG meeting itself. Our final session of the day will be to elect a committee to organise the Scotland group going forward, so once we have done that we can go and have a pint or a wee dram to congratulate the new team!

Rather than having to walk too far, we will probably head round the corner to the Guildford Arms, which still leaves us near to the station for those leaving by train later. If anyone knows of a better venue near to Microsoft’s office at Waverley Gate, please let us know in the comments.

CRM User Group Social Evening November 2014

CRMUG.pngThe next UK CRM User Group meeting is on November 13th in Reading. Because so many attendees travel down the night before, it makes sense for us to get together for a social evening of networking, chit-chat and generally getting to know one another a bit better..

November 12th from 18:30 onwards, Pitcher and Piano, Reading

This will take place at the same venue as last March, the Pitcher and Piano, 18 Friar Street, Reading, RG1 1DB which is in central Reading within easy walking distance from railway station, TVP shuttle routes and plenty of hotels.

Join us from 18:30 onwards for a few drinks and maybe a bite to eat (especially for those of you staying overnight in Reading). Try to get there before 8pm to take advantage of various 2 for 1 offers on cocktails and selected bottled beers, or glasses of house wine and pints of beer or cider for £2.50.
