    This Saturday!!!! Please RSVP - enjoy the talks - pizza dinner and dessert and then a personal online Q&A session with one of our speakers after we view the MACNA talk he put on!

    Afterwards - if you care to hang - we will go 2 blocks to my place to check out my little 40 gallon and do some Beers and BS hang time : )

    I have another exciting announcement. I hope you still have the chair that I asked you to sit in for the last announcement. You may want to use it again. I also hope those of you who have not yet rsvp'd have not made other plans for tomorrow eve because.....

    Joe Yauillo has also graciously agreed to visit with us via Skype after we view his presentation.[COLOR="#FF0000"][/COLOR]

    You just have to come! It's going to be something you don't want to miss!!

    May I also note that Acharpenter, has some serious arm twisting skills as I cannot take credit for either of these Skype sessions. It was all her! Nicely done!!

    Yes actually I can, but we dont have enough time to fit him in tomorrow : )

    I should note - the MASNA Speaks program now includes web based speaking events so we could schedule something like that if this one goes well and there is interest : )

    Just finished a test Skype call with Austin - that guy is great! Was just supposed to be a connectivity test and turned into a 40 minute discussion : )

    Really looking forward to his talk tomorrow and I am glad his Q & A session is the last event of the night as I am quite sure you will all have quite a few things to discuss with him and will take the entire 45 minutes left on the room for the Q & A!!!!

    I just happened to watch Austin's MACNA 2016 talk yesterday and it is a good one for all hobbyists to hear. I'm sure the follow-up discussion will be just as engaging.

    I would like to attend, but cannot.
    The additions of Austin and Joe's Skype feeds are making it difficult to not attend.
    And if you did get Richard to jump on, I would definitely find my way over there. Richard; next time!

    Okay, you can add me to the list.
    I'm sure my mother-in-law will be just fine if I'm not stopping by tonight. ;)
