What's On - News - Snippets and other STUFF

Submitted By: Bean from Melbourne Vic AU

In the past it has been customary to post announcements about important news, happenings, events,  meetings  ....WHATEVER.... on easy and in various other locations.  Problem has always been finding that particular post when you want it...almost impossible if you are on dial-up... like I am at the moment...

CRAFT's doesn't help either!

I hope this works for all. Ciao.

I hope others think this is also a good idea and choose to use it at a general noticeboard...which would have been a much less wordy heading.... not to worry!!!

In particular it could end up being a very useful tool to help catch up when someone has been away from the site... time will tell.

Fionafest was such a blast that there is talk of a cruise for 2010...
Could the organisers [if it's not Jane] post any suggested dates or ideas here BEFORE I book my ticket... would hate to be over there and miss out on such an extravaganza by a matter of days/weeks!
Plan is to be in California in spring at this stage ... everything else is negotiable...
