G'day Nick,

Welcome to the fray :-) Good to see another organisation represented on the
RML. I must point out that the RML isn't an ANGFA list but owned and run by
two guys in Canberra (Alan - "Merlin" and Andrew - "Frex") who
coincidentally are ANGFA members. The ANGFA flavour comes through 'cause
most of us (active members) on the list tend to be members of that
organisation.

Welcome

Barry Meiklejohn
