I think I did my share by setting up the previous reunion in LV
and you should keep bugging Damian or anybody else to try it this time.
But I think it is a great idea to have it and if nobody else is willing,
I might help out a little.
And I think, even it if is an old geezer meeting, we should let a few of
the youngsters attend; they might learn a few things :-).
And I think the whole list would appreciate your mail to me--
so no problems there.
