Iíve received my confirmation too even though my name was wrong! Iíll be going alone and look forward to meeting board members Iíve not met before, and catching up with others in the real world again rather than cyberspace.

Something to maybe consider in future:
The American online community always arrange a gathering at the convention venue on the night before the HDSAís Annual Convention. I know that would increase costs with an additional overnight stay, but it has worked well in America and they even had their first HDSA Convention wedding held at Atlanta in 2005 at the pre-convention online gathering! I've posted pictures of my adventures In America at the online gatherings on my personal website.

If anyone en route from south east London to Telford needs a lift, let me know and weíll see if we can sort something out.

Hopefully I'll be there with my partner. Are we still doing The Wisdom of the Edlers vs The Cheeky Young Whippersnappers at the Friday night quiz?

It was something about dementia I think. Or was it? I can't remember. Is it Thursday today? No no, those are my pyjamas.
