Subject: [ANNOUNCE][F] Midland Meet, 18th August 2001
Message-ID: <>


Right, following the resounding sucess of Yorkmeet in June, I've decided
to do another of these meety things. This time on my home turf (well,
nearly...), in Coventry. On the 18th August.
Again, due to lack of things such as spare rooms, floors or gardens, it
will be a daymeet. Again, I suspect most people who come to it will be
travelling by train. Again, drinking will be involved... :-}
The basic outline (to be filled in as and when I want to, which may,
although probably won't be, after the meet... :-} ) is:
Meet everyone somewhere near Coventry railway station at a mutually
(in)convenient time, then go and find somewhere for a morning snack. Sit
and discuss things, possibly go wander over and look at various
interesting bits of Coventry (erm... Well, there's the Cathedral and the
Motor Museum... And the Time Team hole...), then go across to a place
that has been highly recommended for lunch (Browns).
Then perhaps pop into Waterstones (I'm sorry, but it's a reflex
action...) and then wander back towards the station, but more
particularly to a place on Old Spon Street called the Windmill
(possibly, depending on whether there is anything good on and if people
want to, via the Odean Cinema...) for drinks, discussion and other
things beginning with various letters...
Then either go find more food (Hey, I like food...!) or bugger off
home... :-}

There's already been a lot of interest in this (so don't worry, you
won't be the only one there. I mean, I'll be there, even if no-one else
is...) and places are not limited in anyway (not by me, anyway...), so
feel free to drag along husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends,
attractive University age daughters and so on... :-}
I'd like to know roughly how many people are interested in coming
though, so please let me know if you plan to come (don't worry, I won't
be angry if you pull out later...) and how you plan to get there. If you
could tell me _when_ would be convenient meeting up time, that would be
useful too... My email address is (but it's probably best
if you post here too - the server is a bit, well, unpredictable at the

Many thanks, and hope to see lots of you there (especially since I won't
be at CCDE... :-{ ),
