    Hey all,

    So you will need to meet Conor in the lobby to be able to get sent upstairs. We will have people there from 5:30 until 6:10. If you are not here by 6:10 you may not be able to get in the building (depending on how nice security is feeling.) If you don't see a tall skinny man directing you upstairs please call me at[masked]-7845.

    Thanks!
