I have no objection to having keysigning from 6:40P< unitill dinner and 
5-19 minutes of speaking time after dinner.
I also would think having a meeting with keysigning as the topic would be 
good at some future meeting. Anyone what to do it? Anyone want to arrange 

Sorry no one replied sooner but I did ask Dick to reply woth our opions.

I am scheduled to spend time away email and be out of town untill Monday 

I hope someone will send out the meeting reminder!

I hope someone will take meeting notes and have the notes on the Balug 

I may be at Balug meeting for June meeting.
My wife and I have been having medical problems (not related)!
