    You should have told more of us of the meeting place and we could have
    flown over for the event!  It appears you were gathered at
    approximately 51.6 degrees north and 1.4 degrees west.
    Chuck Taylor and I got together for lunch last year, so we had 2
    members, but your meeting was 50% larger than ours!
    It would be fun for us to get a larger group together sometime, but we
    are very spread apart.
    Thanks for the report!
