Thursday, May 15
The exact time has yet to be set, but it will probably be something
in the area of 6-7pm, and will probably last until the hotel kicks
Several people have asked for various different nights, stating that
they would be unable to attend if held on certain other nights. I
understand those kinds of problems, really. However, as the meeting
organizer, my fixed travel plans only allow me to arrange for a
Thursday night session.
I am truly sorry if this is inconvenient for some folks. Be assured
that the next meeting will have plenty of advance notice so that we
can all arrange for a mutually acceptable time and date.
As a minor concession, since I must mandate the meeting time for this
first meeting, I am more than willing to allow someone else to set the
dinner menu for the evening. A strong lobbying effort for oriental
cuisine is starting to emerge...
I plan to post a sort of "lead-off" message early next week to get a
few ideas and issues on the table in advance of the meeting.
