I'll take John's advice on this. As a first step, those who wish to go,
should a) mail me and then b) I'll SMS you a bank a/c where you can put
your €35/€40 deposit. You'll all just have to trust, that I'm not some
418er , looking to scam 200 bucks !
Again I'll take advice proffered and give 72 hours as a notice period,
for those who wish to pull out.
I'm open to suggestions as to alternate ways of organising this also, if
these arrangements aren't acceptable to people.
