    In seriousness, I wasn't planning of ramping up the volume. Just "ambient?"

    Though I could rigg up a mic & do a few customer announcements...? "Special offers?" "Store will be closing." "FIRE!!!.?" ;):D

    Think that would be a great ice breaker Jay, we can do a pop chart with BG levels to see who is number 1 or the highest/lowest !!

    You can deffo do the emergency information announcement too, I.e. In the event of an alarm please use the exits to the front/rear/side of the plane :hilarious:

    JuicyJ - our local DUK group has a Magic Meeting Bag, that is like Mary Poppins Gladstone bag. It holds loads (even if not the same shape). Anyway, we have a hypo kit in there, with Glucotabs, biscuits (which double as nibbles with refreshments), oath energy bars, a meter and in-date strips. No Glucagon, but if the person were that low, it'd be 999, I guess.

    Out former Chair was a hospital DSN, so the practise started there.

    To be honest, it all fits in a clip-top box, but if we have newbies, or visiting folks, we make it clear where it is.

    When I went to my carb counting course, the hypo boxes doubled as a snack box as well. Biscuits to follow up after juice, so it is a good idea :)

    Lol, Radio interview? Not my style.. I did one once. (& understand the nerves.) Plus a few fanzine blog interviews? Not comfortable listening. (Band stuff.)

    I won't post it here but will PM.

    With regards to actually attending. Yep, one sleep to go. & looking forward to finally meeting up with you & the meter mates.

    Hey! I'm still officially legal,to drive. & put the wheels in place to strive for (at least.) another three years... :)

    Keep an eye out for a wedding cake sugar decoration with shorter hair..
    Just don't all pile into me if on a low.. I'll be "packing" emergency fast acting carbs.. :)

    @MeiChanski ? I'm sure your profile pic does you no justice either. Can't wait to catch up with you. :D

    It doesn’t but if you see a short asian girl and a bag of snacks in her hand, that would definitely be me. I can’t wait to see you too.
