Hi Philip,

Wasn't expecting quite such a response to my quest :)

Are you involved with the maker-container-thingy near the palette-pavilion ?

would be good if someone from that group could join us next week (and 
or John Carter ?).

next meeting is 26th August 2013 at Tait, 6:30pm onwards, but most 
turn up after 7pm.
