Hi Elia,
    I would say just show up and do your thing!  As far as getting it onto
the schedule on the website, I will copy the Internet Group and hopefully
they can get it by then.   We're all still figuring this out - work in

is the people who should wield it." --Augusto Boal, The Theater of the
