Re: [webdesign-396] Saturday's Meetup Schedule

From: Chris R.
Sent on: Saturday, September 22, 2007 6:39 PM
Well, I couldn't make it today, but I want to put a strong vote out for 
more non-tuesday meetups. I've been trying to make it out for a couple 
months now, but tuesdays never work for me.

Hope lots of progress was made today.
