SPECIAL NOTE: I apologize profusely for changing the date of the meetup at this late date. I was called away on the 7th and rather than canceling (and because I don't want to miss one myself), TIG has agreed to flex with me and change the date to the 6th. If you are now unable to attend, please accept my apologies. I hope most if not all can still make the 6th. Dean.
