Possible attendees[edit]

  • Any agendas? (attendance not contingent upon this) - Theornamentalist (talk) 00:54, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

  • I'll be busy in Brooklyn until 5, but will see how fast the subways run -- kosboot (talk) 23:46, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Sure, coming later is fine, we'll be there for awhile.--Pharos (talk) 06:01, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
