I want to be a good host, and set up some times for people to interact and hangout outside of the official shows, but I'm having a tough time gauging interest in the various items on offer. I'm going to start a running sign up for "various stuff wot we can do" outside of the shows. If you and your entourage want to be included in any of the proposed activities, LMK.
Also, by far the easiest way for me to communicate with you all would be through teh Googs. So, again, pm me your gmail if you want to be added to the hangout. I'll try to keep this front page up-to-date.
- Anyone interested in a pre-show Thursday meetup? Happy hour sort of thing?

If it actually rains, I have half a mind to organize an early chanterelle hunt, but that might be a little too obscure a pursuit for this crowd.
