[Baypiggies] SPEAKERS NEEDED FOR APRIL [WAS April meeting query for you]

    i am trying to schedule many months in advance.
i depend on the group, of course. I may have a
woman who writes Python to implement math to
generate pattern tiles--she's not in bayPIGgies, so
i claim extra points. On the other hand, nothing is
yet for sure, so i can't write up a schedule.
    Myself, i'm a literal person: i mean what i say and
expect others to so read. Your "CANCEL..." seems
a ploy to scare members into action: 's okay, but
not my style.
    Seems to me the April meeting is either newbies
night or meet and greet (I vote for meet and greet),
depending on member response.
    My deep thanks for your interest, both of you.
