EEB Meet - 30th October 2010

Postby Squigglyx » Sun Oct 10, 2010 09:04 pm

With time passing so quickly, I was wondering if it would be better to just have a combined October/November meet.

Possible Saturdays posted below, please indicate your preference in the usual way.

Thanks

Night before Halloween could be fun, so voted for that, but really can do any day but Nov. 27th (gonna be at brother's house for Thanksgiving and staying through the weekend).
Cheers -

Possibly wont be there (I know - I'm only half there anyway!) as it is my son's birthday. Having said that, I suspect he will be out partying anyway.

Thanks to all who attended, another fun meeting.
Jake won the quiz, cunningly Hallowe'enily themed and written by Anne (questions and answers precede thispost)
Kel won the country raffle and now has the Solomon Islands to add to her ever growing empire.

Catch you all next month, same place, same time(ish)
