Hi Everyone:

Work has me so busy I haven't been able to keep up with PDML, but I've got a 
bit of a free window here to pose some possibilities, so here goes:

1)  I know it might be too early for a solid  commit, but is it possible for 
folks to respond to the list stating they are "seriously considering 
coming."  If I could get some idea of who *might* be coming, I might be able 
to help with places to stay.  For example, my parents have a back yard, so 
if some folks were on a budget, maybe they'd be willing bring a tent and 
billet in my parents' backyard--though I do have to ask my parents about 
this :-), but I don't think it will be that much of a problem--I hope. 
Also, if I can get my living room cleared of book piles, I could purchase 
another large air mattresses  (Darrel & I slept on one at GFM, and they are 
really comfortable.)  We have 1, which could be put to use, and I'd be 
willing to get another one.  Anyway, if you post back, I'll start a list of 
those folks "seriously considering coming," and I'll try to help out.

2) In a week or so, I'll post a list of hotels/motels folks might consider 
staying at.  I promise to be budget-aware when compiling the list.

3) Awhile back I suggested the following:  Folks fly in Thurs or Friday; 
attend exhibit opening reception Fri night; Photowalk all day Sat with pizza 
party/dinner Sat night;  How does this sound to folks?  The bigger problem 
will be choosing a photowalk spot or (spots)  lol--so many possibilities. 
If you want to offer suggestions please do.  I'm going to do some serious 
thinking on this and post some possibilities soon.

Anyway that's a start.  I hope it helps.
Cheers, Christine
