Ack!  John Marcotte was initially scheduled for Friday morning, but he
called me on Thursday to say that he had a scheduling conflict.

Apparently, Erik Mullinix had spoken with him and said he was interested
in helping, and that John said Erik should take his slot.  I never heard
from Erik or John after that, so I guess I assumed it was dealt with.

Oh well.  As long as nothing was stolen or broken.  *eep!*

That sounds about on-par with last year's disc give-aways.

Great! :^)

Heheh, it's funny how people always get confused with what days we meet,
when we've been meeting on those days for _5_years_.  Plus, it lists those
days, in big bold letters on the _front_page_ of our website.

I'm not sure what else I can do to make it any more obvious!?  Maybe rent
a blimp and fly it around the Sacramento region... :^)

  "LUGOD meets on Mondays _AND_ Tuesdays!"  *blink!  blink!*

hehehe ;^)

Thanks for the report, Rob!  I'm glad the show went so well!!!
I hope we can do it next year (and maybe have more volunteers?  hmm?  hmm?)
