Yeah It did - we were in the no-smoking room out the back. We had papers out and I thought we looked suitably meeting-like, but I guess not... sorry you missed us.

PM me your email address and I'll send you the minutes/notes from the meeting.

The next meeting is currently penciled in for Wednesday 22nd, 7:30 at the Common Place.
