Issue 40 - 2006-03-16

Hi there,

Apologies for the recent flood of mails from the Sproutlore
list - this one should be the last for a little while.

In our last mail we forgot to mention that the official
theme on Saturday is "Cowboy Night", but in grand Brentford
tradition, all costumes are acceptable, or none if you
prefer (well, not actually none because that would get you

Please note, if you are waiting for your Brentford Mercury,
that the new issue has been running a bit behind schedule,
but we plan to get it produced and posted in the next week
or two.

In case you missed it, here are the details of the Large event again...

There is an unnofficial Pub Crawl planned by Andi Evans who is bringing
us EnLarged, in Derby on St Patricks Day, Friday the 17th of March, to
precede Enlarged.

The itinerary for the Crawl is:

Flower Pot 12:00-1:30
Dolphin 1:30-2:30
Silk Mill 2:30-3:30
Exeter 3:30-4:30
Smithfield 4:30-6:00
Alex 6:00-7:30
Brunswick 7:30-9:00
Babington 9:00 onward

As for the Saturday: The opening times have slightly changed at the Alex
(The Flying Swan) due to there being a new Neville in charge. It now
opens at 11:45am. We will be in there throughout the day untill closing

Meanwhile, there has been much discusion about costumes, none of which
has been definitive, and it appears we may have everything from Vikings
to Sith Motor Bike Shaving Lords along.

We will also have some fine pewter Large Badges made for the event,
incluing a new style and a key ring.
