Use of the Blog
This Blog has been very useful over the crisis of the last few days and has convinced me of the value of a Blog over which I was a bit skeptical in the past. I will try and keep up with a bit more regular entries in the future and will hopefully attract a more regular audience.
I have sent out a general message to customers over the problems of the last few days but I am fully aware that in the current email climate not all of these get through. If you think you should have received this email try adding email@example.com to your friends list or perhaps send me an alternative email address which may be less heavily filtered.
To give you a few more items of news. This Thursday will see the publication of the last edition of the Mesemb Study Group Bulletin for 2007. The good news is that membership of the MSG is actually up on 2006 (any other groups match this?). Membership costs for 2008 are unchanged except that we have had to increase the airmail subscription outside Europe due to increased postal costs by £1.
Last sunday the Convention committee of the BCSS had its first meeting to consider the next BCSS Convention. Suzanne was elected Chairman of this committee which has a number of new members and lots of ideas were floated to make this a different event from previous conventions which will appeal to a wider spectrum of members. Several venues will be inspected in the near future and prelimanary proposals made to the F&GP of the BCSS. We will then be able to suggest a date and venue for your diaries.
Note: Blogs to this site recently have all apparently come from Suzanne, whereas actually they might have been from either myself (Tony) or Suzanne. This was due to limitations imposed by the absence of the server which had also sorts of complications on our internet access. I will get this sorted in the next few days so that it is clearer who is posting.
