EEB Meeting - 18th December 2010

Postby Squigglyx » Tue Nov 30, 2010 11:15 pm

Another year draws to a close, it's time for that last meeting of the year,
but which Saturday should we choose...

Please indicate your choice in the normal fashion. (I have included the Monday and Tuesday following Christmas to increase the options).

The meeting will include:
A quiz deviously devised by me :evil: with an EEB LBE as a prize :D
A Raffle with another EEB LBE as first prize :D and a third as second prize :D
The usual country raffle
And yet another raffle to determine to whose home all the donated GCTS's will go.

Hopefully lots of fun conversation.

Bring your own mince pies/crackers/funny hats etc.

TERRIBLY inconvenient, Christmas and New Year's Eves both falling on potential EEB meeting days. :shock: Must speak to the calendar fella about that. :wink: Anyhoo, I picked the 18th, but could do the 27th or 28th as well.

I'll be away from the 28th (which is the 27th for you backwards lot), with low or no internet so I voted for the 18th.

Getting mince pies here could be tricky, but I will make sure to have something suitably Chrismassy to snack on.

Sorry folks, I logged on and had about a 1/4" of conversation and no box to write anything in :(

Thinking about a bigger laptop for the coming year :?
