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.

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!*
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?)
