(follow-up set to afp)

Since various afpers are also members of ACCU, and ACCU is holding a
conference in Oxfnord on the Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of July, are
there any takers for an Oxfnord meet on the Friday evening?

If so, town centre or Old Marston?

Since I'm to be in Oxfnord on the 18th and 19th of July, I'm calling an
afpmeet at the Wheatsheaf public house. Some discussion as to which day
is better has led me to going for the Saturday.

Where:	The Wheatsheaf in central Oxford
When:	19:30ish, Saturday 19th July
Why:	Why not

All welcome, come one, come all. Some at least will be in Pratchett
related T-shirts

Directions follow (thanks to Kat 'Kitten' Knight and Matt 'Tabbycat'):

By car
- ------
Find the station. This is clearly signposted, and you'll pass it anyway
if you're coming in on the A420 from the west side of Oxford. There's
parking opposite the station, which I think is free on a Saturday. Once
you've parked and disembarked, follow the directions below.

Walking from the station
- ------------------------
Get onto the main road next to the station (OK, the pavement, don't be
picky) and turn left. This is PARK END STREET. Keep walking, and cross
over the crossroads when you reach them (this is a bit of a bugger when
there's lots of traffic, but persevere). Keep on walking until you pass
a car park on your left. There will be a turning to your left (WORCESTER
STREET), but ignore this and carry straight on over the road. You're now
on NEW ROAD. Keep walking and you'll pass a turn off to your right
(CASTLE STREET) and the Westgate Shopping Centre. You're now in QUEEN
STREET. It's probably best to get on the right hand side of the road at
this point. Keep walking, and you'll come to a cross roads. To your left
is CORNMARKET STREET, and to your right is ST ALDATES. There's also a
clock tower on your left. Cross over into HIGH STREET. There are two
alleyways off the right hand side. Go down the second one, which has a
barrel with 'The Wheatsheaf' adorning it. Partway down the alley on your
right is the pub itself, and further down is some outside seating.
