I don't intend to post this to balug-talk but wanted to put it out there in case anyone else on balug-admin feels differently.  I do wonder if this is spam because it was sent to rsvp@balug.org, which seems like a weird place for a human to send this kind of announcement.  Also, its from a yahoo.com address rather than a sun.com address, which could also be fishy.
