    There's no "maybe" button? I'll attend on time if our instructor allows me to leave class early. If he doesn't, then I'll walk down the hall at 7:30pm to the video studio to see if I can still come in late.

      Hmmm, I guess maybe isn't an option in Meetup. I'll take a maybe, but I hope it's a STRONG maybe. I look forward to meeting you. Scott
