I will be using the UK Meets list for any last minute arrangements,
changes or travel news...

For details and how to subscribe see:


Offers of crash space still very welcome.

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


Its not the first post Con meet but there will be at least one overseas
visitor here who missed out on the event and will enjoy hearing the
seeing the pictures, catching up on the Con cupid affected, admiring
 the t-shirts etc. so all that stuff will be welcomed along with the
 usual paraphernalia. This Anniversary year seems to have generated
 even more than usual afp couples *vom*, another wedding *vom*, another
 couple of engagements but mostly more meets, the Con, more reports,
 more pictures, more afpers gathering together and making friends and
 acquaintances, more...

So it will be all that and the usual exotic furriners, gossiping,
up, and especially I hope entrap^welcoming a few meet newbugs too! If
you were at the Con or are new to afpmeets and want to come along
 please do so, just drop in if you wish  - but please by all means mail
 me first if you want more info about the event, the venue, or whether
 the attendees really have 3 legs and glass eyes and a secret
 handshake. I'll endeavour to answer any queries or wibbles you may
 have :}  For the record I don't have a glass eye. The secret handshake
 knocked it out...

Incidentally at least one or two people are coming along who missed out
on the Con though RL circumstances have expressed an interest in having
one of said t-shirts/Con merchandise - I have  asked for one Vixen to
bring along said merchandise, with her spangly leotard adorned lovely
assistant,  Bursar Rood. I'm not sure what is still available but I'm
confident they will let it be known :}

Let us also see if we can spawn a few more entries for the A-Files [1]
anyone who wants to be added - there are usually a few digital cameras
floating around to capture willing victims.


Saturday October 12th  6:00pm onwards.


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


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


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.


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

Great Portland St is the closest tube station and as I have said on
previous occasions:

"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 :]"

But should it be closed its only a short walk from Baker St to Great
Portland St - even I've done this a few times when tired and emotional
it is a straight line, but  Regents Park or Warren St are even easier
closer - there is a map even:


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

Any change to the Great Portland St status will be reported here and to
UK-Meets list.
