Okay, then - the basic scenario is as follows:
On friday 8th January 1999, I will be turning 18 years of age, and to celebrate
the occasion, I intend to have an afp-meet organized for the 9th (the saturday).

After a brief discussion with Stewart yesterday, I was informed that he had been
trying to get together a follow up to October's meet in the new year, and that
this had met with general approval. The suggestion was made that if the response
to this date is very favourable, then the two could become one. Otherwise, this
will just be a mini-meet, Stewart's larger one taking place at a later date. 

One thing to note, it's my intention that this be an afp-meet, and not a
substitute for an eighteenth birthday party[2]. 
Hmm - post looks a bit short but that's about it. So, feedback - anyone? 

[2] ie birthday person and friends getting as inebriated as possible[3]

Well, here's the Announce - eventually :)

Date: 9th January 1999

Place: The Grapes, George Street

Time: 7pm(ish). 

How to get to the pub:

[directions copied and altered from Stewart's Announce]
- From the train station - turn left towards town and you will see a big
junction. You want to take the fork on the left (called Hythe 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 across (to the LHS of a Chinese Restaurant
called The Opium Den). This road is called George Street. Walk up a bit,
and the entrance to the bus station is on your left. (continue as from
bus station).

- From the Bus station - Walk out of the bus station onto George street
(via Gloucester Green if you so please), and turn left. Keep going past
the turn to the right (New Inn Hall Street) and to the left (with Old
Orleans and the Cock and Camel on the corners) until you're a fair way
up, and the Grapes is on the right, just after the Wig and Pen (be
careful not to miss it - it's a bit small)

Bits 'n bobs:
I'd appreciate it if you contact me via email if you intend on coming
(it'd just be nice to have a good idea about numbers, in case of needing
to move venue).

If anyone needs crash space, or can offer any - let me know.

That's about it. I should point out that the Grapes does serve Stowford
Press, one of the main reasons for choosing it.
