8 September 2018 - Glasgow, Scotland
The Glasgow meet is now definitely booked for Saturday 8 September 2018 at The Crystal Palace, 36 Jamaica Street, Glasgow, G1 4QD. This is a Wetherspoons house 200 yards from Glasgow Central station (in fact if you arrive at the back of a Pendolino from the south you could probably jump over the station wall and land on the pub roof). It is a 15 minute saunter from Queen Street.

The Meets section of the Wiki will be updated in due course and a sign-up sheet is now available..

Buses replace trains between Motherwell and Glasgow Central on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September 2018
It's not known if Virgin Trains or TransPennie Express services will be affected.

Engineering work is taking place between Motherwell and Glasgow Central, closing some lines.
As a result, CrossCountry services to / from Glasgow Central will start from / terminate at Motherwell.
Replacement buses will run between Motherwell and Glasgow Central.

Kind of hoped you'd be interested in the Sydney meet as several of us are travelling thousands of miles for it. Never mind.

Appreciated, though bear in mind it's virtually impossible to avoid something detrimental, whether soccerball games or engineering works somewhere.

Apologies if I'm being a numpty, I need to check whether I registered for the London meet on 17th November and - if so - delete myself. I've realised there's a diary clash and, although it should normally be first-come-first-served, the clash is with an AGM and I'm the treasurer :-(

Click on the London Meet link under the Upcoming Events section in the sidebar and you will get the option to edit or cancel your registration.

I do have to say that there is a serious doubt about the viability of the meeting as your withdrawal will mean that only 7 people are registered to attend. Unless the numbers pick up dramatically we will have no option but to cancel the booking as we can't expect the venue to reserve a whole room and staff the bar for us with only that number of people attending. In any event it would be pointless to try and run any significant multiplay with only that number, given those who will just sit and socialise rather than flogging a keyboard.

I've also registered; I wasn't sure until a day or two ago whether I could attend.

I'm getting neither edit nor cancel options; I take it that means I never registered int he first place? My poor old brain cell must be getting old; I was sure I had booked myself in.
