    John,
    My bad. I've been so tied up with 50 hour workweeks that I've let a few things fall behind.
    I'm going to try to leave the office by 6:30pm tomorrow.
    Hopefully I can make it for 7:30 or 8pm.

    Going to try and make this, I'll be about 10 minutes away at practice, which ends at 7:00. Should be fun.

    Hope u can make it Mark. I'm not sure what above talking points mean? Maybe you misunderstood or I hope I didn't confuse you about this month's mtg and who was speaking? Paul & Bill will be doing the presentation. Your welcome to ask some points u made above during Q&A at end of talk. Maybe you can put together a power point on above topics when you give your presentation in the fall. Thanks
