Direct bank transfer is the appropriate, efficient European way of dealing with the payment :D

Just post the relevant account and banking codes and the participants can take care of the rest themselves.

At least that would be my preferred suggestion.

IBAN/BIC ... I agree

We should also have a talking subject line for the receiver to handle easily.

Bank transfer would be an excellent way to do this, though it doesn't really matter how individuals make their payment. What matters is that they make payment on or before 13th March, and that they have some kind of record or receipt of the payment.

I would suggest that as each person makes payment, they email me with the basic details of the transaction so that we have all the information in one place. That way we can more easily avoid any arguments/communication problems with the Lodges.

Dave: just provide us with the banking details (IBAN/BIC and lodge name/address) and the remainder is a breeze.

OK, so this is the vendor to pay £ 75 to?

I'll set up the payment later today. Now, time for the chores left in the wake of the D5/D500 launch.

Yes, this is the gang we'll be dealing with.

My next chore is to check out the wifi at the lodges - they promised it was going to be upgraded by Christmas. I think I'd rather be playing with the D5 and D500.   ;D

Actually, I'll try to arrange for a D5 and D500 being available for the event. My idea thus not a guarantee, but I hold hopes.

Is there any way that NG could act as conduit for the payments? And thus keep track of who paid, etc?
oh, nevermind. I see that some have already paid.
;D

We could start a thread for who paid? OR use this thread to list who paid. I could edit the first thread for that list. I will ask David if that is OK.
 

Added:  OK. Report here if you have paid and we will also keep a list in this thread in the first post. David will have details in the copied email.
