    It has come to my attention that there will be a con for star treck
fans happening aat the Northampton Moat House early in October weekend
of the 2/3rd price around 25UKP for both days.  If there is suitable
interest I think that a Meet of afpers on the saterday is a possibility.

    I have room for a few crashees if necessary !

    without the add infront of me there are a large number of special
guest unfortunatly Mr Neilson was not one but a few of the cast of the
next film.

    Followups set to poster

the first weekend in october of this year if any apfers are interested
in said con then a meet could be held after the saterday session

on the weekend of the 2nd of october a convention Known as Rebellion 99
is being held at the Moat House in Northampton.

Several Afpers have expressed a wish to go to the said Con, and it is
therefore a wise thing to hold a meet afterwards at some quiet pub.
