As regular attendees might know, we will no longer have SMU available as a Fest venue. Angela, better known as The Charming Young Lady Who Brings All the Really Delicious Cookies, offered up a replacement, but it was only available after 5:00 PM, so that didn’t work.
Sandy did dig up a place, though, and here are the details: “The address is 1751 International Pkwy, Suite 115, Richardson TX., 75081.” Sandy further says, “I checked it out yesterday. It is a nice room with a pull-down screen about the size you use for a home movie. There are couches and chairs in abundance. There is also a big-screen TV if we decide to watch re-runs of Jersey Shore instead. We will be able to fit 30 people comfortably, 50 people uncomfortably.”
Obviously that would be more than big enough, especially since presumably we won’t be drawing as many (any?) SMU students anymore.
One note to get the well deserved recriminations started: Mary will not be joining us for the Fest, largely because I failed to provide her the info she needed when it was still ecomonical for her to buy a plane ticket to Dallas. Needless to say, this is a crushing blow for all of us. I’ll do better in July (or August?) when T-Fest rolls around…assuming that much higher gas / fuel prices don’t ground more of us, including myself.
See you in a couple of weeks, guys, on Saturday the 12th. Presumably we will be starting circa 10:00 AM, per normal. Sandy and I are finalizing the line-up now.
