Hello one and all!

As you maybe, possibly, might have guessed by the subject title,
there will be a MEET in Cambs, on 20th of February. All are invited. In
fact, as this is my first ever meet, and I'm going to be very upset if
no-one turns up, all are ordered to come.
 
Pwetty please?
 
Anyway, here are those detail thingies:

Place: THE ANCIENT DRUIDS, Napier St, Cambridge.
Time: 6pm onwards (but if you're planning on coming earlier, let me know
and I'll be there for your arrival).
Clothes: Yes, if you really want.
Bring: Yourselves, and anyone else who can be persuaded to be dragged
along, and even those who can't. I really want somebody to turn up for
this ;-)[1]
Don't Bring: Food (see below)

Reason for meet? You want a reason? Well... um... anyone got a birthday,
or something to celebrate in the last or next four months? The real
reason being that I'm going to be in Cambs around the time[2], and the
last meet was such fun, I've decided that we need another one. That good
enough?

You want a better reason to come? You won't come otherwise? Well... I'l
tell you what I'll do if you don't come... I'll cry, that's what! I'll
stand here in the middle of the group, and cry. That good enough?
Wait... someone will think of a reason... come on people - we've got a
month to think of a good reason to have this meet.

Anyway, here are the TECHNICAL DETAILS (ooer) of the unfortunate venue:

The Druids is a large pub which doesn't mind children or
chocolates/edible Lego (not TM)[3] (in moderation), and also serves
food.  There is also a curry place handy should people so desire[4].

The official ASCII Mappe for getting to the Druids runs thusly:

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/dlg10/pubs/
The pub is beside the Grafton Centre, where there should be parking for
all...

I'd like everyone who wants to come to email me so I can get an idea of
numbers - if there are actually going to be people coming, I might be
able to avoid the pending nervous breakdown.

About crashspace, the wonderful Mole can get space in Trinity
Col^H^H^Hall, if asked *a month* in advance - so you need to be pretty
quick if you want to get that. There are also apparantly other people in
Cambs, who may be able to offer crash space - I've e-mailed a couple, so
if you need, or are able to offer crash space (and I haven't mailed
you), then please e-mail me ASAP.

I may post a reminder closer to the event, depening on whether anyone is
planning on coming,
                   Leo Barium (*HUGS* to all)

[1] Gid! If you're coming, bring you guitar this time...please? We could
do with a sing-along <g>[5]

[2] Well... I'm going to be in Cambs *because* of the meet, so this kind
of creates a paradox thingy, doesn't it?[6]

[3] I've got a reason! I've got a reason! This Christmas, I was given a
packet of chocolate covered coffee beans, so having demolished them, I
was told the name of the shop from whence they came, and have since
bought more, purely for the sake of afp meets. So, anyone not coming to
this meet will miss out on a proliferation of cccbs!

[4] Not living in, or anywhere near Cambs, I don't know exactly where
this is, so anyone who went to the last meet and went to the curryhouse
afterwards might be able to tell us [if there is an 'us', of course ;-)]
where it is.

[5] Is this an oppurtunity for the AFP-madrigal society to have a
practice? E-mail me if it's going to happen.

[6] No, it doesn't does it?

Hi,
   this is a final reminder for and plea for attendance at the wunnerful
meet on the 20th of this month in Cambridge. The original announce
(albiet slightly edited) follows...:

there will be an AFP/ATM-D MEET in Cambs, on 20th of February. All are
invited. In fact, as this is my first ever meet, and I'm going to be
very upset if no-one turns up, all are ordered to come.

Pwetty please?

and I'll be there for your arrival).
Clothes: Yes, if you really want.

along, and even those who can't. I really want somebody to turn up for
this ;-)[1]
Don't Bring: Food (see below)

Reason for meet? You want a reason? Well... um... anyone got a birthday,
or something to celebrate in the last or next four months? The real
reason being that I'm going to be in Cambs around the time[2], and the
last meet was such fun, I've decided that we need another one. That good
enough?

You want a better reason to come? You won't come otherwise? Well... I'l
tell you what I'll do if you don't come... I'll cry, that's what! I'll
stand here in the middle of the group, and cry. That good enough?
Wait... someone will think of a reason... come on people - we've got a
week to think of a good reason to have this meet.

Thus far, we have Jennie Lees (AFPumkin) having a birthday some time
roundabout the meet.

There is no longer any crash space available through Megamole, but there
may still be some around if you e-mail me ASAP.
