Subject: December meeting o' the Androgums
From: Eric Gjovaag 

This coming Saturday, December 14, is the next meeting of the Emerald City
Androgums, and the last one of 1996.  In celebration of the 30th
anniversary this year of they Cybermen, and the tenth anniversary of the
planet Mondas returning to the solar system, we're going to show "The
Tenth Planet," the very first Cyber-story.  And THIS version contains part
4!  Sort of.  Oh, you're just going to have to come and see it to
understand.  In addition, we'll have some other videos, mostly fun stuff,
both in the main room and in Video Room 2.  We haven't made any firm
commitments yet, so if there's something you'd like to see, or you have
you'd like to share, drop me a note or bring it along.  Oh, yeah, and also
bring some food for the potluck.  Questions?  Directions?  Etc?  drop me
an e-note.

--Eric Gjovaag, Head Chef, the Emerald City Androgums
