OK, we've got a bunch of names and I'm still working on digging up some more but its time to set a date and a place. In order to keep things simple I've worked out two possible dates Sept 8 or Sept 29. Based on the feedback to these two dates I will be settling on one within the next week so now is your chance to speak up.
As far as the location, it will be in the New York/New Jersey area. Lisa Hollander and Larry Zaback are currently researching several possible locations. Thanks to both of them for all their help.
