Announcement: Meeting time and venue

It looks like a few folks have volunteered to help with the book bombing that is Edinbooks on the 15th August 09.

For those who are interested in participating, we will be meeting at 11am at 135 George Street, (ring the buzzer for Ambergreen Internet Marketing) where I will distribute books for people to drop and make introductions. Some will be dropping in Leith, Stockbridge, New Town and Corstorphine. The plan is to re-group at 1.30pm for a drink and chat.

We intend to pick up books and scatter fairly quickly, so if you’d like to join in, please be at 135 George street no later than 11.15am. I’ll be closing doors by 11.45 at the latest.

If you’d like to get involved, but can’t make it at that time, please get in contact via email at cityferret@yahoo.co.uk or via Twitter @cityferret

See you then!
