TPF 2010 Offline Summary

Post by AHB » 01:20 Sun 05 Dec 2010

I thought that it might be of use to have a summary or index to past offlines and possible future offlines being organised through or attended by posters on TPF. With a single summary list it should be easier for people to see quickly whether there is an offline coming up that they would like to attend.

All offlines on the list are set out with the following information:
