Hello! This is Kate here. My partner Wolf and I have just joined ABS & hope to meet with you this Saturday. I understand that we need to be at the Abades services at 0930. How will we recognise you, where do you meet?
Also, we have a small, well-behaved dog - can he come with us? We may just join you for the morning, because a whole day is probably too much for our little dog!

Thanks,
Kate

Hello again. I think Wolf and I will come to Abades on the A92 tomorrow at about 0900 hrs to meet ABS, but I think it is much too hot for us to come on the field trip.
We are away from home in the Alpujarras, for a week or so, and are camping near Humilladero.

We will sit outside the cafeteria at 9 o'clock ish. We have a small dog with us. We hope to meet some of you before you leave at 0945.

Regards,
Kate

Hello Kate and Wolf,

Frank will not be leading this meeting as he has had to fly back to the U.K. urgently. It will be lead by our Chairman, John Brooks. You will see lots of people congregating by their cars with binoculars etc. Just go over and introduce yourself.

Best wishes Brenda.

We are back in the Uk now but would like to thank John Brookes for stepping in to lead at short notice and doing it very well. 
Hope all is ok with Franky. 
Also to thank everybody else who attended for making it a great meeting for us.
I think we had 4 lifers for us and great views of so much else, all because of the kindness of the other members


Regards


Ruth and Trevor
