Hi everyone,
 
we have hit a snag with the U of C.  I guess they did not process my request properly and we do not have a room there on Sunday.  I am trying to work things out and have also contacted the Audioroom to see if they will have us.  Worst case scenario is that we try to reschedule sometime in the summer because I will not be able to plan another meet for the next couple of months.  I'll keep you posted but I think we should try for August and plan a big meet.  So far 9 have confirmed for this one...
 
Cheers,
Al

We'll, hope we can get it worked out, because I already booked the time off work for it lol

Sorry buddy it was a complete surprise for me.  I'm trying my best to work it out.  This is the first time I have had problems with booking anything at the U of C and it might be too short a notice for the guys at the Audioroom.
