EEB Sept 2010 Meeting.with LBEs - postponed till 2nd Oct

Postby Squigglyx » Wed Sep 01, 2010 04:42 pm

Ok folks,

September is now upon us and time to decide when we should sit together around our keyboards and screens.

There will be a quiz (written by Jake), so no doubt it will be a cunning one :twisted:, with an EEB LBE as the first prize :D

There will be a raffle for all those who have met the entry requirements (supplied me with 1 GCTS) with an EEB LBE as the first prize.

We will be as usual raffling of a random country.

There will be lots of 'interesting', 'stimulating' and silly conversation.

Kel may bring her sparkly glue and glitter things :D

Pick your favoured date and come and join us .

The meeting will start at 21:00 bst with the quiz scheduled to start at 22:00 and all the other bits fitted in whereever we can :D

The 25th is currently looking favourite, but there is still time to put forward you preference....

Come on don't be shy :D

Bad news for the 25th...
I am going to be working that evening/night, so wont be able to make the meet (unless there is a flurry of votes for another night).

I think we have a couple of options...
a) Somebody kindly steps in and 'chairs' the meeting on my behalf :) (I will predraw the EEB LBE raffle winner and let the stand in know in advance)
b) We have the September meeting in October (on the 2nd)

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

A friend from Denmark has asked if he can come visit next weekend, so I'm afraid I can't make the meeting after all :oops:
I'm really sorry- I hope someone else can take over? Please?

Fate seems to be against us :shock:
Maybe this meeting is just not supposed to happen on the 25th. If we haven't got a deputy assistant stand-in chairperson by mid-week, I suggest we postpone till the following weekend.
Sorry folks....

SorryI had to leave early but when another joined my little chat box disappeared altogether :( So I couldn't reply to anything.
