I could waffle on about how Mittens started (and already did slightly in my last post) but more exciting is the upcoming AGS meets this year. If you want to know the history, read it on the AGS Wiki.
This year's Mittens is in France and all the places have been booked, I think, so you can't go if you're not booked up already.
Brittens had been planned to be in Ireland this year, but unfortunately not enough people could commit and so its all up in the air at the moment. If you live in the UK, offer free accommodation and you could have the chance to have loads of internet wierdos descend on you!
Lapaset (Finnish for Mittens!) is presumably in Finland, presumably in Summer but has only been mentioned in passing this year, so we'll have to wait and see!
