    Surprisingly good! 95% because of the speaker - Ebbin. Waaaay more cool stuff than I was expecting!
    The other 5% was the participation of the folks that attended! Wholey Moley - these are some very well prepared people.
    NOW, to get them to share all that know how with the rest of us!

    Lost one star 'cuz we should have filled the room.
    Will take some blame for lack of promotion.
    GOOD JOB Evelyn!
