Since the Official Xmas London Meet isn't until 26th January 2002 (far too far awaysmiley - winkeye)
we decided to hold a Xmas meet at the end of November. Saturday 24th November to be precise.

Location was Glasgow, and as always it was open to all Researchers!

This is roughly what we did:
Ok suggested itinerary for the day is this:
Meet up in The Old Printworks, 36 Nth Frederick St., on the north side of George Square , from 1pm onwards. Down a few
smiley - alesmiley - stiffdrink, whatever. Then those who are going, head to LazerQuest2000 on south side of Argyll Street, opposite Marks and Spencer, for 3.15pm.Note This is booked, details on the 'Further info. page. First game at 3.30pm. This will take up until 4.50pm, after which some people will be heading off to freshen up, others may just head back to the pub. Those not LQing will probably either be in the pub or may want to see about snooker/pool (also at LQ). All meet back at Old Printworks for about 6pm. Then food (be it pub grub at OP or something else). Regardless of what happens, there will be someone at the OP to greet any straglers from 7pm, after which we retire to wherever everyone else is to get some serious drinking done until we get thrown out.
Don't forget your smiley - sheep!!!!
