Re: Sinclair Gathering 2000

It sounds wonderful!  I do have a few questions.  

Please:  1.  an address to send cheques to in the U.K.?

         2.  would it be possible to use credit cards
for the deposits?  
         3.  for those of us in Ireland and the U.K.
who do not have pound sterling accounts, do we send
checques in Irish Punts or American dollars or ? at
the current rate of exchange on the date of the
deposit?  To whom, where?

         4.  will we receive confirmation of our

         5.  If we can't use credit cards, what about
electronic transfers to the Sinclair 2000 account? 
(In this instance, bank and account number for
Sinclair 2000 would be needed by the person making
the transfer.)

The whole New Orleans contingent is very excited
about the Gathering and almost all of us are planning
to attend.  Fair warning!!!  

We thank you for your kind invitation and for
planning such an exciting itinerary.  We can only
hope that Northeast Scotland doesn't crash into the
sea from the weight of all us Sinclair descendents!
