Subject: [ANNOUNCE][F] Skipton/Keighley Meet - Slight Change of Plan
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2002 20:25:39 +0000 (UTC)


[Hi, please note the amendments throughout this message. Thanks. --tap]

Slight change of plan - Man Utd are playing a charity match or something on
that day, and so, just in case any of you are Man Utd fans and want to
watch, I've changed the start time to 7pm. We may also be moving to
elsewhere in Skipton a couple of hours later.

A brief word of warning - I cannot reccommend anywhere to stay overnight (if
the situation arises), the last train (to Leeds) is at 10.15pm, and the last
bus is an hour later. is the online version of the Yellow Pages phone directory -
it should be able to tell you anything you need to know

Thank you for bearing with me :-)
