OK there seems to be enough interest.
There have been requests for a day meet. 
Therefore I'm suggesting a lunchtime (to afternoon) meet at The Turf
Tavern.
Time 2pm (14:00) 'till whenever.
If other people want to meet up a bit later we can arrange a time and
place.

I noone responds with objection by the beginning of next week I'll post a
formal announcement put up a web page with details of bus/train times/web
sites and a map of how to get there.  I'll also put up email addresses of
people offering crash space (I may be able to offer some).

There is also a new Wychwood pub opening soon which should be worth giving
a try!

Right here's the formal announcement.

Oxford meet Saturday 10th October 1998

Parte the first:

14:00 at the Turf Tavern (for lunch and/or beer)

How to get to the Turf Tavern:

There are two routes to the Turf depending on how well you know Oxford
or if you have a tourist map :)

Assuming travel from either bus station or rail station.  From the
rail station turn left towards town and you will see a big junction. 
You want to take the the fork on the left (called Hyth Bridge Street) 
this road will take you past the Blackwells HQ, a futon shop and
Jongleurs.  Keep walking till you to get to a crossroad (of sorts). 
You want to go straight accross (to the LHS of a Chinese Restaurant
called The Opium Den).  This road is called George Street (the bus
station is on you left - people travelling by bus join the directions
here) walk straight down.  Go accross the next cross road (past
Waterstones, which used to be Dillions for people who've been to
Oxford before) onto Broad Street.  Keep walking straight down (past
the White Horse - a morse pub - on your left) until you come to
aonther crossroad with a set of traffic lights.  There will be a pub
called The Kings Arms on the opposite side of the road on the left and
the Sheldonian Theatre (big round building) on your right on the side
of the road you should be on.

Route 1: Go straight accross into Hollywell Street.  The back entrance
to the Turf is on your right opposite the Hollywell Music room.  It is
pretty well signposted.

Route 2:  Turn right at this cross road (along the side of the
entrance to the Bodlean Library) then take the next left (you should
see the Bridge of Sighs).  Go under the bride and you will see an
allyway on you left - this is the front entrance to the Turf!!

Basically if you get lost ask a tourist where The Bridge of Sighs or
the Hollywell Music Room is (or indeed New College!)

Parte the seconde:

19:00 at the Eagle and Child (general drinking)

Assuming travel from either bus station or rail station.  From the
rail station turn left towards town and you will see a big junction. 
You want to take the the fork on the left (called Hyth Bridge Street) 
this road will take you past the Blackwells HQ, a futon shop and
Jongleurs.  Keep walking till you to get to a crossroad (of sorts). 
You want to go straight accross (to the LHS of a Chinese Restaurant
called The Opium Den).  This road is called George Street (the bus
station is on you left - people travelling by bus join the directions
here) walk straight down.  Go left at the next cross road (past
Debenhams) onto Magdelan Street.  Stay on the left hand side of the
road.  Walk straight down this road (crossing over another crossroad)
onto St Giles.  You want to walk down this road for about 5 minutes
(tops) and the Eagle and Child is on your left.

Hope this is all clear.  For further directions, what busses to get
from various places, maps etc have a look at the web page (which
should be up by late tonight) http://users.ox.ac.uk/~musf0012/afp/

If you want any more directions and can't acess the web email me and
I'll help.

Some (limited) crash space is available by arrangement only.  Details
are on the web page or email me.

If you have any questions etc don't hestiate to email me.
