Welcome scribes, a good attendance and a lively, humorous meeting chaired by Jennie. John Goodwin returns next Thursday. Nice to see the return of Stewart who gave us news that he and Penny will be returning to the U.K permanently very soon. With Eddy Kent and John Winslow also going and our good friend Nicos not able to attend regularly, a recruiting drive may be required.
A short discussion followed regarding how best to find a professional editor for Jordi's book. Bob offered to send Jordi some information.
