I'm rather disappointed that I missed this.  I haven't been watching
python-announce (which appears to be the only place this was
announced).  Why not list it on the Python Users Group blog
(http://python-groups.blogspot.com/) or in the Local User Groups area
of the Python Wiki (http://wiki.python.org/moin/LocalUserGroups)?

I certainly don't want to step on toes... on the other hand, Greenbelt
is right on the edge of how far I'm willing to go.  So I'm at a loss
for what to do. :-(  I'd love to actually attend a meeting though.  As
far as hosting on of your meetups at Howard County Central Library,
it's certainly possible... but you have to get on the schedule and
it's currently 3 months out.  Which is why I started prodding around.
By the time the holidays are all done, the time would be here.  I've
been getting some responses through several other forums, so I'll poke
around and see if those guys are willing to go to Greenbelt at all.
I'm certain I'll be in touch in the not to distant future.
