Hi Guys

Ian Cameron (Social Secretary) has asked me to start a thread and give advance warning of the annual Pre StormChase Meet Up. After going abroad to Cardiff last year this years location is much more Central to more people and will be held on Saturday 3rd March in [b]OXFORD[/b]

Ian is sorting accomodation out and will post the various good offerings he finds, can you please let us know in this thread wether you are interested in coming along to this, it really is a good way to meet your fellow chasers and have a good old chat and ask any nagging questions you might have as most of the Staff will be involved in this event.

This will be the 4th Annual Pre Chase Meet and the other 3 went very well with good numbers in London, Manchester and Cardiff.

Hope you can all make it.

Regards

Paul Sherman
