Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to remind you of the upcoming meeting.

Lori's reserved the meeting room at the Montlake library for this coming Saturday, October 16, 2-5 pm. I expect to close the organized part of the meeting about 4, allowing those who wish to leave to do so, while allowing those who wish to stay and converse to do so. You are welcome to bring non-alcoholic beverages to the meeting, but please be sure that your drink container has a lid in order to minimize the chance of spills. Lori is responsible for damage to the room, and we don't want to burden her with unnecessary expense.

I'm enclosing a summary of the meeting content and format. Please feel free to send me questions/suggestions/requests at [address removed].

I look forward to seeing all of you who find the topic interesting and who have the time available.

I expect to lead a lively, stimulating, and productive discussion!

I think that our time together will be fun and fascinating!

Philip
