I emailed the KLUG list well in advance of a 'public' announcement, as
I have yet to build the web site!

Sorry, I should have been clearer. The new users will pay the £20,
rather than the experienced users. Also, I wouldn't expect the
experienced users to all be present all the time, rather that they can
act as a point of contact for new users via email/the web site for
support for the four weeks of the course.

To that end, I've booked the Sydney Room at the Alexander Centre in
Faversham from 7pm to 9pm for the inaugural meeting on Thursday 1st April.

The £20 just covers the hire of the room (£120 for the four sessions),
so rest assured it's not a business venture!

Thank you for your comments, they've been very helpful. I'll be getting
the site up and running as soon as possible.

cheers, Jake
