Life After IML - November 2006

Since my last column I've visited Chicago for a Hellfire Club weekend, which was a lot of fun. I've also had a chance to try upside down escapes in escapology practice for the first time - with some success. I managed to cope with the blood rushing to my head, but I definitely need to work on my abdominal muscles!

One of the projects I supported during my IML year was Magnet, a health centre located in San Francisco's Castro district. I wanted to know how they've been getting on, so I emailed Magnet's Community Organizer, Kevin Roe, for an update:

Have fun, look after yourselves and the people you play with.

Best wishes,
