[Baypiggies] [Fwd: Re: Cancel December meeting?]

If folks want to have a light-weight meeting along the lines that
Wesley suggests, I have no problem with it.  I volunteer with another
non-profit technical group, which organizes dinner plus technical
talk.  We have given up on December meetings because we can't compete
with company holiday parties and shopping sprees.  But the
infrastructure and financial costs of our meetings are a lot more
complex than BayPIGgies.

Presumably, anyone who signs up is on this mailing list.  So, we have
no major problem managing expectations.  Just the same, it probably
would be good for someone to post a note on the sign-up page to check
the mailing list for impending agenda change.
