Re: [chinese-294] Weekly Chinese Conversation

Well, Alan sent that email saying we would have it in Reston this week
and then decide where to have it in the future, but it turns out the
Reston library's meeting rooms are all booked, so I made a reservation
at the Oakton library instead.

So unless that is a problem for anyone, it will be at the Oakton
library at 10304 Lynnhaven Place Oakton, VA[masked] from 7-9pm on
Sept 3.
