Just a quick note to let you know that, if you aren’t planning on bringing your own portable device to Pancakes and Mash on Tuesday, we have a number of (ageing but perfectly servicable!) laptops which you’ll be able to borrow on the day.

Just a quick note, with less than a month to go, to let you know where we are with the preparations for Pancakes and Mash:
- 50 people now booked in! Just 10 places remaining.
- Venues, catering (inc. pancakes) and wifi all sorted.
- Keynote speaker confirmed.
- Programme shaping up: 3 out of the 6 practical mashing sessions have a confirmed, resident ‘expert’ and a theme.
What we still need to do:
- Lanyards, badges, library access cards, flipcharts, pens, laptops, sign-in details, directional signs/posters, drinks & nibbles for our reception on the evening of Monday 7 March, cake, cake, cake and more cake.

The University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool campus has plenty of open-access areas that are perfect for mashing. There’s wireless internet access in all campus buildings.
On the Pancakes and Mash Google Map, buildings that play some part in the Pancakes and Mash programme are coloured red. Other campus buildings that you can mash in are coloured blue.
