Title: 18th January 2019 - FoSBR AGM
Post by: grahame on November 19, 2018, 02:28:59 pm
FoSBR ( http://www.fosbr.org.uk ) AGM - early evening on 18th January 2019.  The Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways hold their AGM in Bristol (Clifton Down probably the nearest station - venue to be confirmed) in the early evening so that members based in the City can attend the meeting prior to commuting home by train.

A very great deal has been going on in Bristol - and will be in the New Year.   Although not a regular at FoSBR events, I expect I'll be at this one.   Coffee Shop member catch up and more?

If and it is a bit of an if, I can get out of work in time, I will endeavour to attend. It's been a long time since I've been to a FOSBR meeting and times are getting ever more interesting regarding local rail. Still got my FOSBR membership so I should get past the bouncers at the door! 😃

Not advised in case I turn up as a black and white cat.

Oh - wait - that was comic relief day.  Offered a free tuna sandwich for my lunch at the sandwich shop for my troubles!

OK ... the talk is writ ... look forward to seeing some Coffee Shop members this evening.   Should be some interesting stuff on the agenda ... as well as my little bit.   All welcome, and it would be lovely if members or lurkers from here introduce themselves. I have has a bit of a wild hair problem of late, but I think that may be fixed and I'm not as wild and frightening once you get to meet me.

Can we please keep posts about technical problems with the forum out of existing topics.

A post on the 'News, Help and Assistance' board is a much more appropriate place.

Lots of other interesting stuff - I'll let the other half dozen or so members who were there follow up - I'm still homeward bound!
