I should have got this out a few days ago, but I’ve spent most of the last two days travelling away from Slugger Central. By Monday I want to have decided on the new categories for the Slugger Awards. To do that (and to brainstorm a few more in the public bodies’ section). We meet in the Lagan Room (in behind the bar) at on Friday Jurys Inn at 12.30 (although I’ll be there from 12). Free tea, coffee and sandwiches. Beer’s fine too, but you’ll have to nip next door and buy it yourself.
Just to help us keep tabs on the numbers, if you are coming can you fill in this eventbrite form? Once we get this in place you can start nominating actual politicians who will then be shortlisted at the big political breakfast in January.
