I would love to attend, however living in the SF Bay Area makes travel difficult. Any way possible that we could arrange something for everyone is the Bay Area as well.


I believe Dr. McDonald has plans for another meeting coming up this summer. Pat, hopefully, will be able to make another trip again as well. I expect we will learn more about any future meetings and where they might on the 28th. Will keep you posted.
I will definately be attending and looking forward to finally meeting many of you.
