Hi guys, just a final reminder that the SkyWarn UK conference is being held tomorrow (Saturday 10th November) at Springvale Sports and Social Club, Bilston, West Midlands, WV14 0QR. The programme commences at 9:45am and will run until 4:15pm. There is an admission charge of £10 per person to cover the cost of hiring the venue, but this does include tea and coffee through the day. The conference will also mark the launch of the new SkyWarn UK website with enhanced services, as well as our new Spotter Training programme. It's not too late to book online via the SkyWarn UK homepage, or alternatively simply turn up and pay on the day.

I hope to see you there!

Rich :)
