Dear Members and Friends of the ABS,
last month I was asking if you were "bored and exhausted by the latest news from the House of Commons?". This time I´m asking "can you still follow the latest Brexit developments, or do you feel somehow lost meanwhile, like me?". Even the advisors on that picture to the right, genuine Norfolk (Terrier) natives, were unable to make me any suggestions. Whether it will happen on 31 October, so-to-speak an All Saints (?) Brexit, or at Guy Fawkes, or Santa Claus, or X-mas, let alone New Years Eve ... they weren´t even sure which year they should predict.
Be it as it is, we better concentrate on our own ABS events of which we have lots to offer, as always. By the time you read this newsletter, we will have managed another premiere, i.e. TWO events on ONE day:
Whilst we were all cordially invited by Joerg and Marlies Koessler-Hammerschmid to their ever so popular "End-of-Season Party" of Morgan Austria, ABS corporate member, on Saturday 26 October, a limited number of tickets was also offered for the "Concert Spirituel" taking place at the Minoritenkirche in Vienna in the evening. Happy all those who followed the advice "first come, first served".
Yours, being one of them,
Fred Fruth, Secretary General and Editor-in-Chief
