setup. There must be pizza in there somewhere or I would never attend.
I like Dan's idea. A more formal(ly planned) activity for Saturday
evening would be good. Filling this 'empty' time slot would encourage
people from further afield (assuming anyone has any money left by
September) and increase multi-day attendance. We have time to think

Yes we are, but then the musicians could play remixes of chip
