IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS IN LUXOR!! (and please DO NOT shoot the messenger).

I have just been informed by my friend Nagwa, who has just this minute received a call from the Governorate , that the public meeting with the Governor is TONIGHT (23rd) at 8.00 pm at the Sheherazade (sp) Hotel on the West Bank.

It's strange that the hotel hadn't been informed!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

The hotel knows nothing whatsoever about this meeting, absolutely nobody has been in contact to let us know. The only way I knew about it myslef is 2 phone calls from surprised friends in the last 5 mins .
However we will be ready for the meeting if the info is correct. However as we have no guests at the moment it will mean taking on extra staff - could someone please assure me that this meeting is really going to take place and how many people are expected. (not many if others know as much about it as I do!!)

Hatusu, we are only passing on information that we received this morning from Madam Nagwa who had had a call from the governorate office 5 minutes before she called Theresa. Maybe you could get in touch with the governorate office to see what is going on. I will PM you the office number if you dont have it.

Who2, not shocked here by this. What shocks me is Hatusu's response. I will leave it to A4 to explain.

Mohamed has spoken to Nagwa and the meeting has been postponed. If anybody ever lets me know the new date I will let you know.

And I quote the minutes of the October 26 "Commity" meeting:
We discussed the importance of improving the organisation and publicity of all events in Luxor. This should be done well in advance...

Well there seems to have been a severe lack of communication somewhere along the line as 'the committee' also has a meeting elsewhere at the same time and doesnt seem to know anything about the governors meeting. :roll:

I have now given Hatusu the numbers for Madam Nagwa and the governorate office and will leave it in her capable hands to sort out the misunderstanding.

:Phew: I was getting worried about our Saturday beer, if you were all going to another topic- and agenda less meeting. :yap:

:br At least you cannot say that Barb's posts are boring - repetitive, but not boring. :roll:

This very quick confirmation then cancellation would never happen on the bright side, we're too well organized. :lol: Stan the man's post was repetitive, probably due to shock.

Well I try to be helpful by telling people about events and meeting, even at very short notice, when I have been informed of them but as usual I end up being the one getting the blame when said information goes t*ts up, so in future I will leave it to 'the committee' to relay such information. Good luck to you all, you will need it. :roll:
