No problem. about 4 people have been going every single Monday. One
will stop after this meeting due to a class conflict, but there are
likely going to be a steady group of people attending. But people
should keep in touch on the list and whoever updates the web page
should keep in touch with the regulars.

I talked to them, and they seem to think the time will be good. They
stay open till 10 if there are customers there, but sometimes close at
9:30 if business is slow. So, BUY PIZZA! (or whatever).

I'll be there, and a couple of friends (other than SMAUG regulars)
will be there, for sure.
