Derby- Society presence?
« on: September 17, 2014, 12:30:12 PM »
Can someone confirm that there's no planned SoA stand at the Worlds, Derby, 4th/5th October? Slingshot back page suggests 'no'.

Had an enquiry (during judicious nudging re Championship games) from the 7th Edition comp organiser.
He says "........a few have expressed an interest in joining. Will there be an SOA stand up at Derby?".

Is a SoA person contactable at Derby, or should I direct him to the online joining section of the Home Page instead?

Cheers

Martin

As far as I know we are not booked for Derby, so yes, please encourage prospective joiners to deploy behind their keyboards and make their Approaches to our online joining section.  :)

Phil Steele's blog mentions that he'll be at Derby, but it's not clear if that's in an SoA capacity or not.

It would be better if potential members join directly via the website - it makes everyone's life easier, including Phil's!

Fairy Nuff. It was an enquiry from the guy organising the WRG 7th Comp, and I thought it'd be churlish of me not to ask about options......the players seemed to be asking specifically about whether they could join at a SoA stand. Hoping they go for the interweb suggestion, as a few more members (and prospective Championship players) would always be welcome.
