Reading RustFest (England)
(Sep 13, 1997)

Your Host - Matt Cottingham

Pre-Fest Notice

The Fest Call was put out by Matt....

If there are any UK Rusties with nothing planned this weekend, how about having a few drinks with Andy Thomas, Mark Snowden and me at my house near reading? Maybe we will even achieve RustFest status! Give us an email if you fancy it. A shame it's such short notice. It would be great to have a large UK rustfest one year....

Well, hoping to see some replies despite it being only a few days away!
