I was expecting in the next week or two to receive an email to say that bookings were opening for the Meeting. After last year I was determined to get it right this year by booking my flight well in advance and respond to the email promptly.
What I get though is an email to say that it is booked up (without me even knowing that the bookings were open) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You missed the full page ad on the back cover of the October Journal ?3 October 2016 at 8:57 pm #577503
I received that today. I have only just opened it . Living on top of a mountain mail is not regular. I can get written proof on this as a Spanish neighbour passed it to my daughter at 1330 hours. The Post Office delivers once a week to a few farms in the area
Why change the system without notice?..4 October 2016 at 7:48 am #577504Nick JamesParticipant
Unfortunately, as Hazel says in her email, UCL told us in August that we couldn’t use their large lecture theatre and it wasn’t possible to find a viable alternative in central London for this year’s Christmas Meeting. We are all very frustrated about this since the Christmas Meeting is always very popular. I know it is not the same but we hope to get the meeting video out as soon as possible afterwards for those that cannot attend.

I appreciate what you are saying, but because the method of communicating was changed – without notice -I did not even get the chance to apply. I cannot understand why they changed the method which I was depending on. At this time of year – harvest time – when every one is out in the fields all the daylight hours, I was “lucky” to get the Journal yesterday as sometimes it can take a month for mail to get from the Post Office to me. For other people, they could have been away on holiday – or working away – for a few weeks relying on their emails to keep them up to date.
After all the organisation and money I had put into making sure that I could attend this year I am still cheesed off.

In my annoyance I forgot to thank you for the videos. I know that you put in a lot of hard work in producing these. I, along with I expect many others, really appreciate them. I have downloaded them all to watch, some of them a number of times.
