Agenda VII (we're packed!)

By popular demand, we will be reverting to a more conventional schedule this year, i.e., day meetings and free evenings. (The GRC schedule may work well for camping in New Hampshire, but we've been turning MUG meeting rooms into mass postparandial crash sites.) As a special treat this year, our guest speaker will be Douglas Adams (yes, really ... the author of Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc.) He'll be speaking Wednesday evening at the banquet at the Ski Lodge, don't miss it!
