Convivial Too

We’re still nailing down details, but Kevin and I plan to co-chair another Convivial in 2007 (and the Minn-StF Board has given their approval). It will probably be held the weekend of October 19-21, 2007 back at the Holiday Inn Select & Suites.

Thanks to everyone who pre-registered at Convivial this year; we’ll have more details on registration rates later on.

all sorts of updates

Some new subpages of the Where section are now online: Amenities is where you’ll find info about internet access, shuttle service, fitness center, pool, and so on. I’ve also started putting up info about area restaurants. And directions are now online too.

The Who page now has a more complete committee list as well as a list of people who have registered thus far (in case you want to see if you’re registered or see who else is registered). The Registration page now includes information on where to register at the hotel.

And there have probably been other tweaks to other pages as well. With a lot more additions to come this week. Please do get in touch if you have questions or suggestions.
