EEB Marching Onwards on the 19th

Postby phalarope » Wed Mar 02, 2011 03:25 pm

Time to choose our next meeting time. This event will feature an LBE raffle, so if you wish to participate, please send me 4 GCTS ASAP. So far I have only 1 participant, so unless someone else joins in she will have a guaranteed prize. :P PM me if you need my address. Poll closes Sunday the 6th - so if you want the 5th you'd better vote quickly.

Anything but 26th. Will be busy showing a certain forum member around my locale that weekend and may forget.

Like it says in the subject line. Please bring chocolate and other suitable virtual snacks to share. Not sure when everyone's time changes (I'll be on US Eastern Daylight Time by then) so we'll say 9 pm GMT and leave it to you to convert.

Bump. Tomorrow afternoon / evening / morning 9 PM GST. Only Anne has sent GCTS so right now she's gonna get a free LBE unless there is something in the post the next two days. (I'd play, but it doesn't seem fair for the moderator to have a 50:50 chance of winning).
