@ Caton Absolutely! A lot of our members do sign up "online" at the website (we even have members that joined from FL and CA to access Tom Barr's and Karen Randall's presentations in the video download library). However Mary, our Membership Chair, will be happy to set you up as a member at the meeting. If you need someone to point her out just track me down!

@mgamer20o0 Thanks for the comments. Apparently Dick Au spoke here around 2000 - 2001 and did a great talk, but that was before I had joined GSAS. We are all looking forward to his presentation on Discus but I understand he has several different ones besides Discus.
