Subject: [wlug] Show of hands for Saturday workshop October 1
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
The WLUG committee are considering organising a Saturday Workshop at the Uni
for October 1.
Can we have a 'show of hands' on who is likely to turn up, please? We had a
few problems with last month's workshop and it would be good to avoid that
On behalf of club, I would like to apologise to those members of this list
who had travelled some distance for last month's particular workshop and
found it not happening. As club president, I had made some assumptions
about the attendance of others that often organise and champion the workshop
day. Recognising that they could be a problem on the Saturday morning of
the event, I made what I believed were sufficient arrangements with
Univerisity security stafff and communicated this to the club member that
believed would be attending. Unfortunately the communication was only one
way and I had to leave Hamilton for a prior arrangment.
Sorry for the mix up.
So, please reply to this list if you wish to be part of Saturday workshop on
