I would like to add my thanks to the organisers of the meeting.  It's
always a bit worrying to cart equipment a long way from home in the hope
that everything arrives on time and in the right place.  The GSA staff
were most helpful and on the ball.  Added to this I learned a lot and
had a very good time.

Regards to all,

Carl (Singer)
