Woohoo :)

I have just chatted with Greg, Michael and Steve live from the
conf dinner.. and the plan is that someone will bring me the 
little statuette back, to Perth and hopefully Perth folks
can all get together for the official handing over ceremony 
with the next 1st Wed Group meeting.. 
I will post details to the appropriate WA lists  when we have them..

Thanks to everyone who support LinMagAu (and me)over the last 6 months..
It is because of the hard work of "everyone" who writes, suggests
or even flames :)(that LinMagAU is a happening thing :):)

As a blatant aside.. if you would like tosupport financially.. 
there is now a "Donate to LinMagAu" PayMate button on the site..
for details, click on the button and read the blurb :)
then if you want make a donation to help the Mag keep going :)

Thanks again everyone.
Kimberly Shelt
