It is possible register online and/or to pay for both the luncheon and the 2002/03 RG Society subscription online through PayPal: Please access www.robertgraves.org and click on the "Visa/Mastercard Buy Now" icon on the Madrid luncheon information or, to subscribe, scroll a long way down the page to "Calendar of Robert Graves Society events" and click on "Register for Society membership". Then look for the "Visa/Mastercard Subscribe Now" icon. If you want to pay for both the lunch and subscription, choose one or the other then elect within PayPal's software to "continue shopping" and move within the RGS/RGT website to the other. (PayPal will remember what you are up to; if you finish up with a PayPal "shopping cart" with more than you want to buy, just alter the quantities manually or click "remove" before going on to purchase.)
If anyone is still needing travel or hotel information please either contact me or register online at www.robertgraves.org and elect to receive the hotel information.
The exhibition is expected to continue showing for several weeks. Please visit the Circulo de Bellas Artes website during December for details.
