(Note: this is being cross-posted to alt.tv.x-files, uk.media.tv.sf.x-
files and alt.fan.pratchett)

The votes are in (sort of), and thus there will be a gathering of X-
Philes (X-Files fans for the unitiated) in Manchester, on Sat the 10
Aug.

There will be several members of the mancheXter Committee there to
answer any queries (and to deflect thoughts of Alien Slime [1]!)
regarding the forthcoming MancheXter Convention.

We've decided to go to Scruffy Murphy's (the one near the BBC and the
Polyversity), and to meet at about 7.30pm.
