While strolling in the park one day
in the merry merry month of May
I was taken by surprise by a pair of EEB eyes

Your moderator will be aboard a rather big boat on May 21, filtering the Atlantic Ocean 500 ml at a time, so your choices are May 14 and May 28

I voted 28th, to give me more time to write quiz and also will hopefully be celebrating after last home game for the season.

Ack - it's the 12th already - almost the 13th.

EEB Tyrant declares the 28th May Meet Day.

That is all.

I am not going to be able to make Saturday :( , off visiting family for the long weekend. I can knock a quiz up and pass to someone else to deliver or keep mine for next month. What do you think?

Hey I have a suggestion I've been mulling over. How many of us have Skype, and would be willing to have an EEB meeting (maybe a one-off) on voice chat?

Oh dear - I get out of internet range for a week and chaos ensues. Peter, if you email me the quiz I can run it, otherwise I'll punt.

I was thinking last night that quizzes could be difficult to do on voice... but then I wondered if we could do a quiz by asking everyone to 'bring along' their own noise-making object as a buzzer :P
