We are looking at flying out from the UK on 31st July 2008, and returning from Beijing on the 1st September 2008, give or take a day either side. We will not set any of this in stone until we have all discussed this when we first meet to make sure we accommodate everyone’s needs. There is a very good reason why we are flying back after the weekend of the 30th/31st August, which you will all find out about when we meet in early September.
Form filling in from the YSES pack – can you please be very diligent and thorough about filling in the forms that are enclosed in the pack that you all receive from the YSES office. Many of them require your parents or doctor to complete, this information all helps us do a better job of looking after you and your needs, so make sure it is all correct. These should all be returned to the YSES office, preferably all together in one envelope, and I would suggest taking a copy of them for your own expedition file.
First meeting of the team – I am looking at our meeting being on Sunday 2nd September, and need to know everyone’s availability. It will probably be from about 1pm in the afternoon for about four hours, and will be somewhere central for us all to get to easily. Please email me and let me know if this date suits, or if not, whether the 8th September is. Many thanks. Andie
