A message from Peter Harvey, known on Fifteensquared as Kathryn’s Dad:

I am organising the next Sloggers and Betters Midlands get-together, which will be in Derby on Saturday November 10th.  We’re going with the same venues as previously: Waterfall, and The Brunswick Inn, which are both within a minute’s walk from Derby rail station, with parking available in the station car park for those driving to the event.  It will be 12:30 for a 13:00 sit-down for lunch.  Waterfall have agreed to give us a three-choice hot buffet for £8 per head if we have sufficient numbers.  In the past, people have gone on to The Brunswick in the late afternoon, having digested their lunch, to sample the excellent variety of real ales.

If previous events are anything to go by, it will go like this: meet some old friends and new faces; chew the crossword fat; and drink too much.  Some of our professional and non-professional setters will no doubt bring a puzzle for you to enjoy, either over a pint, or at home later.

If you would like to come – and new faces are definitely welcome – please say so below, and if I don’t already have your e-mail address, please mail me using the contact form below so that I can contact you with any further details.  Because Waterfall will need to know the numbers for the buffet, please do confirm your attendance as soon as you can.

Last time in Derby we had over fifty people attending, with more than a dozen setters.  It would be nice to see as many again this year, so if you can make it, put the date in your diary now and let me know.  Any questions, please also drop me an e-mail.

Hope to see lots of you in November.

Peter/Kathryn’s Dad

    I’m really disappointed that I can’t make this one as I’d love to be there. Unfortunately it clashes with a wedding gig with the band. Have to say I feel a bit gutted about it.

    I won’t be able to make it either as I’m doing the usual Autumn visit to the aged parent the week after next. Shame as I really enjoyed last year’s do. :sad:
