[Michael, you're right, you did submit it too, but I missed the extra
bit you included over and above Pete's announcement. Mea culpa. Tap]

A long time ago, on a Usenet far, far away, Velvet Jacket Limited scribed:
You know, I could have _sworn_ I posted this before Pete Davies did,
with an afpmeet proposal appended...

So far, only two people have expressed interest (excluding myself). If
we can get a third, we'll be quorate for an afpmeet. :-)

Of those that have expressed interest, the period 17th-20th / 23rd
August seems to be optimal. If anyone else is interested, please
contact me by email and we can all go together (awww, how nice ;^) ).

Subject: [ANNOUNCE][F] Edinburgh afpmeet / trip to see "Hogfather" at the Fridge^H^H^H^H^H^HFringe

An afpmeet will be held next week along with a trip to see Velvet
Jacket's open air stage production of "Hogfather" at the Edinburgh
Festival Fringe.

By common consensus the meet will take place on Thursday 20th August. 
The play takes place at the Edinburgh College of Art (Fringe venue 73) 
on Lauriston Place at 6.15pm; we'll meet just beforehand and the
afpmeet will continue afterwards. I'll wear my afp T-shirt (again) so
you can identify us if you don't know me already.

Tickets cost 7 pounds (5 pounds concessions) and are available from
the Festival Box Office or direct from Velvet Jacket (see or previous postings on afpa
for details). On the map at,
the train station appears right-of-centre; the bus station at St.
Andrew's Square is above-left of that. Lauriston Place is at the
bottom; it shouldn't be more than 15 minutes' walk.

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask me; and I look forward to seeing
you there.
