Re: GSBN:Re: Query for Spain SB

Dear John and Andrew and Simon,

SB Spain is just getting started/organized.

Contact Rikki at rnitzkin@...
She has just started building SB in Spain and has some contacts.

There is a Spanish SB mailing list, but it seems to have some temporary
technical problems. Contact Simon, the list moderator at pieman66@...
to get enlisted. And give him some time to react as he is in South Africa at
the moment
