Just a note to say have a great time this weekend, Everyone.
I'm unable to attend due to heavy commitments this weekend (and, admittedly, not enough advance planning). Unfortunate, too, since I live nearby in Uptown. But I think this extended gathering is a terrific companion event to the Faire, and I'm genuinely glad to see so much enthusiasm. I hope this can take place again next year. I'd certainly carve out time for it far in advance.
I made a donation and will be there in spirit.
Good work, Alan, on organizing and to everyone for pitching in. Have fun! Hope to see plenty of photos.
