SPUG: CANCELLED: SPUG Program Committee Meeting - rewrite the community

Sorry, I started a response and didn't get it sent off yesterday.
Still, three really isn't a crowd.

I'm on board for a full level of commitment and responsibility. Most
in the goup don't know me, and those who do probably don't remember
me. I have only made one meeting, and mostly been a consumer on the
mailing list. (Thanks to everyone for all your help/responses.)  I'm
at a good point in my life to start giving back a little more, and
this is what I'm choosing. (I was a scoutmaster for the past three
years and, while fulfilling, it hasn't been something I could really
throw myself into with abandon.)

I know I won't be able to make every meeting, but I think in groups
like this, whether the planner is going to be there is less important
than having made and publicized a plan. So, I volunteer to plan the
upcoming meeting, and maybe even bring cookies (the kind you eat).

For the record, Tuesdays are as good as any other day for me. Is there
a sense that people would prefer a different day?

I'm also going to plan a daytime event in Bellevue, somewhere near I-5
and I-90. Probably more social, but we'll see.

If you haven't added your address to the map,
(user: spug, pass: spugger), and want your location to be considered
in planning events please do it soon.
