Wednesdays are as sacrosanct as consistency is a virtue.  Put another way
short notice changing of dates causes chaos and annoys people.
A non Wednesday meet would probably be ok as long as people had good notice (> 1 month) of it.

Nottingham central library is out for Wednesday nights.  For future reference it might be avaialble on Monday nights (out by 21:30) and cost GPB 19.54 if it is a public meeting (ie. we don't charge and we are quiet about asking for donations ;) or ~> GBP 30.00 if we advertise it as costing money to get in.

Does anyone know about "The New Mechanics" (Trinity Square, Nottingham, NG1 4AX).  They have rooms for hire but the person I need to speak to is out until tomorrow.

AAAAARGH, why do people with rooms for hire in Nottingham make it so bloody difficult to find them.  I either find other groups who hire rooms there but no contact details or I find the place - again with no contact details.

Have fun,
