Apologies for not making the conference call last week, and I forgot to
send my apologies (was busy leading a Missing Maps event).

I should be able to make the one tomorrow evening.

I'm surprised we've got such a short list of members, are people waiting
for the first GM to happen when fees are to be set? You won't be
"auto-charged/enrolled" once we're established, so I don't see it as being
a commitment.
E-mail osmuk at nomoregrapes.com with your full name and postal address and
I'll add you onto the list.
