Dinner

If enough people are interested in having dinner, we will have dinner at
the Engineering Society at 6:00 PM.  We need a minimum of 12 to have
dinner, and 30 to have a buffet dinner.  Once we meet our minimum number, I
will contact those people to decide on the dinner choices and arrange
payment.

Because seating is limited at this event, we would appreciate if you would
let us know if you will attend.
Please email Craig Holcomb at [log in to unmask], and let him know if you
will be joining us for dinner and the talks, or just the talks.
Please provide your name and the names of any guests. We will include you
on further announcements and updates.
