Quick reminder that I will be using the New UK Meets list for any last 
minute arrangements or interim details but a final announcement will 
come here in the usual way.

For details and how to subscribe see:

<http://library.lspace.org/mailman/listinfo/uk-meets>


Its also a request that if you know you are coming and haven't already
let me know could you please let me know? It doesn't tie you to anything
But it helps the landlady to have a reasonable idea of numbers.

That request goes double if you can offer crash space or if you need it.
There is some crash space available, I'll be getting back to those of
you who have already asked shortly but could anyone wanting to come, and
needing crash space please let me know asap?

If you would like to come but are rugrat constrained please also contact
me direct at the above address. Other queries to the same address.


THE MISSION:

To celebrate AFP's 10th birthday in an afpropriate way... and since its 
also the Valentines meet outrageous tat will be in evidence based on 
past performance.

Surprise Furrin Guests are already lining up at the door :}

I have a couple of special requests - as this is a special event we 
would like to record it and maybe use the pictures from these early 
birthday meets to go into a new afper gallery on lspace, as well as the 
usual meets page with pictures and report. So bring those cameras along 
and lets get extra pictures, and if we can record voice messages to be 
held with them from as many of you as possible so much the better.

Additionally young Mr Knell has foolishly volunteered to collate 
postcards from everyone into a large display piece...

Please bring along a postcard showing you home town, or something 
representing your area. Hopefully by the end of the year we can put 
together postcards covering most corners of the world. I figure that if 
everyone brings a card along to the meets that makes it easier to 
collect, but you won't be left out if you cannot get to a meet - Mike 
will be announcing details of where to send cards Real Soon Now...

It would be nice to have this project which Mike is putting together as 
something that all afpers can join in, irrespective of where they are.


WHEN:

Saturday February 16th 6:00pm onwards.


WHO:

Exotic furrin guests, and hopefully as many as you as can possibly make 
it!


WHAT:

Should you bring? Chocolate, strange candy and fluffy toys, fluffy
people, buttock shaped candles. But mostly yourselves...


HOW:

Please let me know if you're coming, so that I can tot up numbers, I'll
also try to co-ordinate  crash space if required so please send
offers/requests to me as well. Especially offers.


WHERE:

The Venue is "The Green Man" pub, right opposite Great Portland St tube
station. We have the basement as usual.

You really can't miss it and if you do you simply need to ask a member
of the station staff "Can you please tell me where I can find The Green
Man?". At this point they will look at you as if you are their senile
grandmother, turn their head 90 degrees leftward, and point it out to
you. Anyone asking me how I know this will receive a Hard Stare.

Gt Portland St tube is on the Circle/Met/Hammersmith lines, short
distance by road or tube from Euston, Kings Cross, and Paddington and
Liverpool St are only a little further on. The only mainline which is
further is Waterloo.
Unfortunately moving mainline stations to more convenient locations in
London is beyond even my powers of persuasion :]


Its also a short walk from Baker St to Great Portland St - I've done
this a few times and it is a straight line, but  Regents Park or Warren
St are even easier  there is a map even:

Search on 'Great Portland St' and you will get the best segment.
