Prez Mez March 2008 - Dee Beetem

First topic on my list is REVELCON, March 14-16

What’s currently on the agenda for the Several room:

Fannish Summer Party

We’ve talked about this for a while but haven’t gone forward because we don’t have a venue. It’s time to get started now because summer will show up before we know it. I would like EVERYBODY to contact me with your best idea about a possible location. If you haven’t got a clue about where we should go, then tell me that, and I won’t have to hunt you down.

Finally, please inform Margaret or me if you’re willing to volunteer your home for a meeting or video party. Don’t make us hunt you down…

Don’t forget the Yahoo Group for Several Unlimited!
