Perl Mongers Meeting .. (changing meeting day?)

I know that at the Thursday meeting people had
suggested Tuesday as a possibility, so I thought I'd
weigh in on this. As some of you know, I come from
Walnut Creek to the meetings. I also attend other bay
area perl monger meetings on occasion. It turns out
that the Silicon Valley group meets on the first
Tuesday of the month and the San Francisco group meets
on the fourth Tuesday (i.e...not necessarily the last
Tuesday but often so) of the month. It would be great
if we could avoid those two Tuesdays. I know that not
everyone (or not anyone at this point but me) attend
these other meetings, but in the event that one of
these groups or the Sonoma group end up having a guest
speaker, there may be people interested in attending
the other meetings on occasion.
