Oh Gods - where does the time go? :oops: Thank you for the prompt. This Saturday is tough for me - family gathering on Saturday will certainly impinge on EEB hours, and next week is, of course, Hogswatch. I like the idea of delaying until Dec. 3rd. That might wind up being the last EEB of 2011, though, because the final Saturdays are Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Although a New Year's Eve EEB has appeal for me - it's at 4 pm here and I don't stay up anyway. :P EEB would give me something to do, haha.

I'm not going to be able to make the meeting tonight, might possibly be back for 11ish if there is anyone still around, but otherwise, have a great meeting, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
And a big thank you to our outgoing chairperson Carol and congrats to whoever takes on this role for the next 12 months.

See you in 2012

Take care all.

Pete

Our final 2011 meet and the final Congress of my reign of terror. Bogie provided superior background music, including 'A Wizard's Staff Has A Knob On The End' by Dave Greenslade. Great Disney quiz by Laura, see above, won by Mazzie with strong competition by Anne. Apparently the tradition of funny points is continuing; be very afraid. Alan (phazed) won American Samoa, unfortunately after he signed out, so appropriate obescience could not be rendered, however the country will be sent to him by post. Anne won the last 2011 EEB LBE. Anilori was elected (ramrodded into) Tyrant for 2012 and promises a Cuddly Reign of Terror.

"nk you all for allowing me to serve as your Tyrant. That is all.
