And unfortunately I'm out of town 10-15th, and won't be able to
attend. Anyone want to bring my copy of HOP to be signed? I'll
make a desposit in your account at the KWPM beer bank.
Is there any chance that Fulko will be recording this? I suspect
that MJD might go either way on that one.

This is the weekend before my wedding, so I will be able to go. I will be
taking my car, so I can (comfortably) bring 3 other people along with me, or
cram 4 people in the car with me if need be.
Let me know if you need a ride,
