| Meeting |

As decided by the previous poll, the meeting will be held on Sunday the 
31st of August in Manchester.

Due to some people having had difficulty finding the venue in the past, 
I suggest we meet *upstairs* not far from KFC at Piccadilly train 
station at about 12:30pm (look for geeks, laptops, t-shirts, stickers etc.).

Once everyone has arrived, we will then move on to the nearby "child 
friendly" venue[2] with free wifi - who I have been assured - will not 
cause any of us any problems. We aim to have finished by about 4pm.

To make sure everyone is at the station before we move on to the venue, 
it would help if you could sign up at our eventwax page here:


If you think a contact number might be helpful on the day, email me and 
I will sort one out :)

| What  is  DFEY-NW |

DFEY-NW is a group formed in response from a growing need in the 
Northwest of England for a Group to encourage and promote young people's 
involvement with the free software community by creating a social space 
to make it more comfortable for young people to get involved with GLUGs 
and FSUGs.
