Hello Folks,

I have finally secured a copy of the Geography Syllabus that was still
lacking.

It is a 130 page document and I will talk to the owner to allow me have it
until next week
hoping that you will find time to work on it on 31st after the board
elections.
It is so detailed and that's why it is at 130 pages otherwise it should
take around 2hours to
have the list on meta once apportioned among the attendees.

//Stephen.
