I agree, it makes sense that people in Reading might not see the point
of a meet here. They are getting everything they need right there. No
doubt they never consider where the gaps might be. However I've wanted a
clear idea in my head of what exactly I'll be promoting the meet as and
at least a few people confirmed as interested. If at all possible I'd
like to avoid days where I'm the only one who shows up!
I've got a lot going on right now (child on the way this weekend!) so
I'm thinking the first week of October.
