TPF 2011 Offline Summary

Post by AHB » 10:40 Wed 05 Jan 2011

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:

Updates made to the first post - not many things scheduled in the diary, which is nice as it just eases the pace off a little.

Good idea; I'll work on one tonight.

A partial update completed - listing all known future tastings.

Further work will be undertaken as and when time permits. Hopefully to be complete by the end of next weekend.
