[Quoted-printable killed off once more. *sigh*  --Tap]

The date: 9th October 1999
The time: Unless there are complaints, I'll say 2pm.
The place: The Hogshead, Oxford Road, Manchester

So wass goin' on?
- -----------------
Nothing much - it's just that this is a convenient date for those who 
won't be able to make the 12th November AFPmeet (being organised by 
Anejo). There should be a good attendance at both, so don't be 
concerned about which you go to, though of course you'll be going to 
both if you have the chance!

The 8th is a Friday, which means that if you're that way inclined 
there's the possibility of attending one of our local haunts, the 
Rockworld all-nighter, which plays goth, industrial, metal, NWOBHM, 
trad-rock, punk and cheese on three floors until 7am, followed by 
fried food, sleep, and being up in time for the AFPmeet...

The plan is to meet in the pub, and spend a pleasant afternoon 
nattering, drinking the variety of interesting beers, ales, wines and 
meads offered by the Hogshead. There's food there, or we could nip 
down the road into Rusholme for a curry later on. Any other events 
will be taken into account once I find out about them (when I return 
to Manchester in a few weeks' time), failing that we'll end up at 
Dooferlad's playing games stolen from ISIHAC.

But it's still August! Why are you telling me this now?
- -------------------------------------------------------
Why, so you can keep the date clear, silly! Reminders will be posted 
to AFPA nearer the time (1 month and 1 week), but I'm trying to gauge 
interest, jog memories etc.

How do I get there?
- -------------------

  By train to Piccadilly:
  -----------------------
>From Piccadilly station, walk down the station approach and keep 
going until you reach a large park on your left. This is Piccadilly 
Gardens. On the far side of this park is Piccadilly Bus Station.

You'll want any forty-something service except the 47, to the MRI 
(Manchester Royal Infirmary, next to the Hogshead, good for stomach 
pumps ;) ). Should cost somewhere between 30-60p, go for Magic Buses 
because they're cheaper. The stop is about 20 feet away from the HH, 
it's clearly visible.

If you feel like walking (20 mins - half an hour depending on pace), 
go down the station approach, double back on yourself and continue 
until you reach Whitworth Street (big crossroads, practically under 
the station itself). Turn right, and continue until you reach Oxford 
Road station, then follow the instructions from there.

  By train to Oxford Road:
  ------------------------
>From Oxford Road station, walk down the approach until you reach 
Oxford Road (surprisingly) at the junction with Whitworth Street. 
Turn right, there's a bus stop about 50 feet down the road on the far 
side. You want the same bus routes as for Piccadilly.

If you feel like walking, get to Oxford Road, turn right (south; out 
of the city) and walk for about 20 minutes, past the BBC, Manchester 
Metropolitan, the Precinct Centre, Manchester Uni, Manchester 
Student's Union and the Academy. The Hogshead will be on your left. 
Easy to spot - it has a large cylindrical towery thing over the door, 
with glass at the top like a lighthouse, lit green at night.

  By coach to Chorlton Street Bus Station
  ---------------------------------------
>From the bus station, head south over Canal Street to Whitworth 
Street, turn right, walk to Oxford Road station and follow 
appropriate directions.

Else, head north, espy Picadilly Gardens on your right, and spot the 
number forty-something bus stop on the road you're on.

  If all else fails
  -----------------
E-mail myself ( grimoire at twisted.gothicdreams.net ) or Dooferlad ( 
mchu7jat at fs2.ee.umist.ac.uk ) and we'll make every effort to meet 
you, direct you etc.

Where do I sleep?
- -----------------
If you require somewhere to crash, both Dooferlad and myself can put 
people up. Doofie's will be more comfortable and closer; my place is 
a bus / taxi ride away. I'm sure other Manc and Manc-close AFPers 
will offer crash space as necessary.

You can probably track down B&B's etc. from Manchester Online ( 
http://www.manchesteronline.co.uk ). There's a B&B on Moss Lane, 10 
mins walk from the pub and just down the road from Chez Doofs called 
Verdene. Miraculously, I happen to know that the phone number is 0161 
224 1576.

Where do I park?
- ----------------
If you're travelling by car, you'll need somewhere to leave it. 
Sadly, both Doofs and I live in rather disreputable areas (Moss Side 
and Whalley Range) and so leaving your cars near our houses isn't 
that good an idea, tho' Moss Lane itself isn't too bad.

Public car parks are expensive, and tend to be located towards the 
town centre. My suggestion is to ask us where you can find a fairly 
safe side road, probably near Victoria Park, to leave your 
automobile.

Is that all?
- ------------
Yep, I think so. Any suggestions, ideas, intentions to appear etc. 
can be directed to me. If the Friday / Sunday really is more amenable 
to the majority, we could move the AFPmeet... that's one reason that 
I'm posting this so early. Anyway, feedback would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Alex

NB: Significant changes marked with a ** in the first column. HTH.

The date: 9th October 1999
The time: 2pm.
The place: The Hogshead, Oxford Road, Manchester

So wass goin' on?
- -----------------

** Nothing much; just a desire to hold a AFPmeet and see all the 
lovely snuggly people we've been out of touch with since CCDE.

** Note that Anejo isn't planning (last I heard) on organising 
another AFPmeet on the 12th November due to not being in Manchester, 
and currently, neither Dooferlad or myself can be bothered due to 
financial and other commitments, so this might be the last Manchester 
AFPmeet of the millenium!

The 8th is a Friday, which means that if you're that way inclined
there's the possibility of attending one of our local haunts, the
Rockworld all-nighter, which plays goth, industrial, metal, NWOBHM,
trad-rock, punk and cheese on three floors until 7am, followed by

nattering, drinking the variety of interesting beers, ales, wines and
meads offered by the Hogshead. There's food there, or we could nip
down the road into Rusholme for a curry later on. After that, 
probably large amounts of ISIHAC-derived games Chez Doofie, or sleep, 
or whatever else takes people's fancy.

How do I get there?
- -------------------

  By train to Piccadilly:
  -----------------------

offer crash space as necessary.

** I have offered crash space to a few people; can they get back in 
touch with me, 'cause due to computer-problems I've lost their 
details. Currently I can offer a lot of floor, and one sleeping bag; 
I'd appreciate it if people brought their own!

You can probably track down B&B's etc. from Manchester Online (

both Doofs and I live in rather disreputable areas (Moss Side and

good an idea, tho' Moss Lane itself isn't too bad, and Whalley Range 
is probably survivable, though it means either not drinking or 
leaving the car there and coming in on the bus and a taxi back.

Public car parks are expensive, and tend to be located towards the
town centre. My suggestion is to ask us where you can find a fairly
safe side road, probably near Victoria Park, to leave your automobile.

Is that all?
- ------------
Yep, I think so. Any suggestions, ideas, intentions to appear etc. can
