Hi Seanie

What will Declan be talking about? When will you have the other talk titles?

Could you send me 30 of the promo leaflets for our next meeting at which we will try to organize a group to go to Cosmos

Thanks

Ronan

Ronan,
I will of course, thanks for the support!

Jouke et all,
There is a discount on the room rates, but you will only get it if you tell the person on the desk it is for Cosmos.

Hi Seanie..
Quick question,when should I pull my finger out
and order some tickets?
Or are they all gone?

Cheers Roy :scope: :unsure:

Hi Roy,

No need for pre-purchasing tickets. We were going to facilitate an online prepay system (we still might), but a technical difficulty with PayPal has delayed that (not that this prepayment was crucial for anything).

Rest assured, this is NOT a ticket event, and there will be plenty of room on the weekend!
