Those aren't two statements I normally expect to see together, it's true.

Both could be true. Acer has a lot of friends.

March 2016 was the date they were bandying about at the last meeting - if the naming of the centre has pushed the funding total up significantly then they may well be there.

Which reminds me that I still haven't written up the last set of notes on the redevelopment. Will do so soon and send them on.

That would be good: it's always nice to have a reminder of what the current plan is!

Peter: I've got a pair of Grivel spring leashes, and have no plan for taking them out this weekend, so I'd be happy for you to borrow them.

What time do people go GA?
Mark

[Edit] [Reply quoting]

9 is the official time, though it varies, depending on whether people want to grab dinner too, etc.

Tonight is our Stephen Venables lecture at 7:15, so most of us will be heading to the pub after that finishes.

Never seen the GA so packed, clearly the current committee has a very different approach to that of the glorious committee of 2006 Rolling eyes

I'm getting the impression that everything this Hilary term is packed... Although that's about Par for a termtime Wednesday at the GA at the moment.

You mean no-one's resigned yet? Wink The club membership exploded in about 2007-08 and doesn't seem to have died down since then. I used to think it was due to our handsome Scottish president and the red-haired enthusiasm of the meets sec, but that obviously can't have been the whole story.

Peter: sure! I'm planning it be at Iffley 18:00-19:00, but I'll be home (32 Golden Road: OX4 3AR) after that.

I'm in a city on the coast Happy - It was snow/hail for a lot of the morning, with hail showers in the afternoon, non of it seems to have stuck to the ground here though, I suspect theres lots more inland - certainly at manchester airport... Might go and find some snowy hills at the weekend if the forecast looks good.

Ah! Ian Cooper is in the Lakes this weekend doing that sort of thing, he's flexible with days usually. Might be worth giving him a shout for mon and tues.
