Building. 20 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0AJ.
This meeting is now heavily booked and we expect to have a waiting list.
The early booking offer for members closed on November 25th, but there are
still a few places left for which there will be a £5.00 charge (BAA members
and non members alike) - please contact the office immediately if you would
like to reserve a place.
Do let us know straight away if you have already booked, but will not now
be able to come, so that we can give your place to someone else.
Because we have so many people coming we will split the registration into
alpha sets so please go to the table appropriate to your surname to help
