      Thanks for the offer! I didn't get the notification in time but I ended up having to work until 9:30 pm so I wasn't going to be able to make it anyway ;/

    Help out? I'm not feeling well today and won't be able to make it BUT I volunteered to help clean up! Will anyone who is able to attend be so generous as to cover my clean-up duty? I hear it's easy *and* burns calories.

      Nooooo. My cleanup buddy! j/k Hope you feel better Cara. I was sick last week and had to miss the other UZ meetup with Phillip Hunter. I'm sure I can handle it on my own Al

    Wednesday evening will be perfect weather for BBQ. I'm sure you will go home with great conversations with other UX friends along with Paul Elrif. Looking forward to see you all.

    Book swap? I have an extra copy of Steven Krug's "Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability". This book is outdated as far as tech goes but the concepts are still solid reminders. I have two copies. I would be happy to hand it off to anyone who is interested. (And if by chance someone has the newly released "revisited" version, I would love to borrow it, or any others that are recommended)

      Hey Bram - thanks for volunteering to be a grillmaster! As we get closer to the event, I'll send more information. We're using Weber tools so that should work well

      Thanks Cara for volunteering to help with cleaning! Please keep eyes open from instructions as we get closer. Should be relatively easy.
