This is the first and final reminder of next weekend's meet.

Date:     Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th April
Time:     Saturday: from 2 pm
          Sunday: from around 1pm
Location: Saturday:
          2-3 pm   The Castle on *St Andrew's Street*
          6-11 pm  The Castle Inn on *Castle Hill*
          Sunday:
          around 1 pm  Meet in Market Square, drift on to lunch nearby
          6-11 pm      The Castle Inn on *Castle Hill*

This meet really will feature Natalie Mayer, Renegade Soubrette, as a
star guest.  The plan is to re-run last year's Finalsmoot, but
probably with more *vom*.  Be prepared - bring your *vom* cards
and earmuffs^W^W.

On Saturday, aside from sitting in pubs, there will be an excursion to
the Fitzwilliam Museum.  Some may prefer to tour bookshops or other
attractions, in which case the meet can split and then rejoin in the
evening.

On Sunday afternoon, punting is planned.  In case of poor weather,
there are alternative plans, but these are highly secret.  (That is to
say, a bit vague.  But they do exist, oh yes.)

Contact
=======

Please use the address afpmeet(at)zzumbouk.demon.co.uk for all mail to
me relating to this meet.  (Sorry for the spam-trap, but I already get
multiple copies and I don't want another.)

If you expect to arrive early or while the meet is not at a fixed
location, you may like to obtain my mobile phone number so you can
find out where to go.  If so, please ask me for it.

Crash space
===========

I can provide at least 3 spaces on Saturday night and 1 on Sunday;
possibly more if needed.  If any other Cambridge afpers can offer
additional space, please let me know, so that I can match bodies with
spaces.

How to find me
==============

Go to the appropriate location.  In case you don't know who to look
for, you may be able to identify me from the recent picture at
<URL:http://www.zzumbouk.demon.co.uk/afpmeet/silly-me.jpg>.  My Palm
Pilot may be a bit of a giveaway.

Directions
==========

Maps are available at <URL:http://www.zzumbouk.demon.co.uk/afpmeet/>.

* From the train station to St Andrew's Street:

Walk down Station Road.  At the end, turn right onto Hills Road.
Go straight on into Regent Street and then St Andrew's Street.  The
Castle will be on the left.

* From the coach station to St Andrew's Street:

Walk through the shops onto St Andrew's Street.  Turn left.  The
Castle will be on the right.

* From the M11 to St Andrew's Street:

Take the road to Cambridge from junction 13 (Madingley Road).  Turn
left at the roundabout into Northampton Street.  Continue straight on
into Chesterton Road until you reach a one-way system (actually a kind
of roundabout).  Go around this until you are heading back the way you
came, and make a left turn onto Victoria Avenue.  Turn right at the
roundabout onto Jesus Lane.  Take the next right into Park Street, and
use the multi-storey car park.  Leaving the car park, walk back and
turn right onto Jesus Street, turn left at the end of it, and go
straight on.  The Castle will be on your right.

* From the A14 to St Andrew's Street:

Turn onto the B1049 (Histon Road).  When you get to a junction with a
petrol station on your right, turn left onto Victoria Road.  Continue
straight on until you reach a one-way system (actually a kind of
roundabout).  Go around this until you are heading roughly back the
way you came, and make a left turn onto Victoria Avenue.  See the
above directions from Victoria Avenue.

* From the train station to Castle Hill:

Please, just take a taxi.

* From the bus station to Castle Hill:

Walk through the shops onto St Andrew's Street.  Turn right.  Turn
slightly left at the taxi rank onto Sidney Street.  Walk straight
on through Sidney Street, Bridge Street, Magdalene Street and into
Castle Street.  The Castle will be on the right.

* From the M11 to Castle Hill:

Take the road to Cambridge from junction 13 (Madingley Road).  Turn
left at the roundabout into Northampton Street.  Turn left at the
cross-roads, up Castle Street.  The Castle Inn is on the right, and
there is a public car park on the right beyond it.  I think this is
free at the weekend, but I could be wrong.

* From the A14 to Castle Hill:

Turn onto the B1049 (Histon Road).  When you get to a junction with a
petrol station on your right, turn right and then left onto Castle
Street.  There is a car park on the left, and The Castle Inn is
slightly further down on the left.
