>UPDATE: Moving this to the top AGAIN so everyone sees it. The operative question is still where? — though some good suggestions have been made in the comments. Also, some people
are rallying have rallied for a dorm breakfast, and I think I have a plan that might make that work for those folks who don’t know what any of the rest of us folks look like. BUT, some people who are protective of their anonymity might be uncomfortable in that setting. (Don’t let me speak for you — I’m just guessing here.) And again, see the new suggestion at the end of the comments (made by Deeni and seconded by Tiruncula) and let me know if that works for you. So other proposals/ideas are still welcome. Also, some of the usual suspects haven’t said anything — perhaps you’re not going this year?
OK, in the last post, the vast majority of you said you could make a Friday breakfast. (Apologies to The Swain, but it seems there’s never a good time for everyone. And since my maternal grandmother was a Swain, I feel especially bad.) Some of you have 10 am sessions to chair, speak at, and attend (silly people!), but no one seems to mind missing out on the plenary. (Side note: I usually go for a run during the plenaries, but the one time I went to one I fell asleep!)
Last year, having a longish, drop in when you want meet-up seemed to work, so we could do something from 8:00 to 9:30, giving enough time for everyone to get where they need to be by 10. Or if you crazy people are *really* morning people, we could start at 7:30.
What say you all?
Next issue on the agenda: where????? Does anyone know if the University Roadhouse opens for breakfast? And if not, is there any other breakfast place within walking distance for those on campus without cars? If that’s not the case, we may have to arrange caravans. I’ll have my car.
I briefly thought that if we started at 7:30 we could meet at the dorm breakfast, but then I thought, “How on earth would we find each other in that crowd???” I can see it now: “Excuse me, are you a blogger? No? What about you folks? No?…”
So, any ideas?
