      4) KFL MEETS AROUND THE WORLD (continued)

      SYDMEET - Sydney, Australia
      They came, we met, we cooked, we chatted, we ate...
      and ate...and ate...they left.

      We cooked: Mrs Whitlow's artery-hardening HogsWatch
      Pie ...very nice and filling...some variation to the meal -
      since you're supposed to eat it cold...we just had it fresh
      from the oven, which was still good!

      Dried frog pills - a lot of icing sugar - I was right the first
      time - I think it's a typo: you add about 300g icing sugar
      to the mix, and reduce the amount of green food colouring
      and rum flavouring and you get a malleable paste. My
      housemates were a little dubious when I told them it was
      'dried frog pills' although one of them tried one and was
      impressed by how sweet it was! :)

      Chocolate Pudding with Special Secret Sauce - still good,
      but a little drier than expected.

      Attendees were Craig Thompson, Bobby Cox, MysApp,
      Arabel, Sel and (briefly) Jerm and while we may not have
      quantity, I think we're doing well on the quality of the meets!

      (who isn't going to organise another Sydmeet for a year!)

      MEL-MEET - Melbourne, Australia
      The Mel-Meet Committee would like to announce two meets.
      Mini-meet happened two weeks ago, with Bek, Matt & myself
      attending, Steven late. And today, (Dec. 11th) instant-mix
      meet, with the above attending, and jase.

      The last was organised today, with a grand total of 5 attendees.
      We would also like to know if it is true that Sydney siders can only
      organise a meet if someone drops bread-crumbs to the site first?

      Hmmm.... I was thinking of Equal Rites (the first one I read), but I'll keep
      Guards! Guards! in mind too. Of course, right now I'm competing with her
      boyfriend, who's insisting she read The Hobbit. *sigh*

      Ah, another Texan! Welcome, Priscilla! I'm in San Antonio.

      <g> If you succeed, let me know. It's only a 5-hour drive.
