'the website that advertised it was exactly that, being in fact last year's'

ah but that was only sorted after the advertising had been released, the link originally went to stuff about election hustings...

Get this, it's advertised as a four course, but the tickets page is a three course (i take from last year).

I dont think much of the description on the dinner page either.....when's the menu out ?

Actually gary, that's a little unfair, because if you type


it will direct you to the default page, which happens to be the news section - now stop bitching and do some project work or something.

ah. ok, I'll let you off then ;-). For some reason IE seemed to remember that link from some point in the past.

May 14 2003 17:53

Yes, because /summerball used to redirect to /events/summerball.

So it *is* Sam's fault and you (Gary) should not let him off.

The summerball website is probably quite fitting - I reckon the summerball is going to reflect the website perfectly: bland, boring and a generally poor attempt.
