Damn bad timing! I am leaving for Sydney a few hours before the meeting.

I will put my two cents here then. First, your effort is very much appreciated Paul,
and your sentiment is respected.

That being said, I can see CLUG continuing without a scheduled speaker every time.
In the olden days this was the format. We came for the pizza and stayed for the
conversation, which was never boring, organized or not.

Nevertheless, I think that we will benefit from having someone "running" the group,
serving as a point of contact. Maybe even convening the meeting. Or can anyone
suggest another, headless, way that should work for us?
