Good friends, 
Below is the schedule for Winter, 2010. I'm posting it, online, for easy future reference. I'll bring a paper copy to the coming meetings.

I wish you could be here, too. Not only for our discussions, but to go out sailing dinghies, and out riding bicycles. Ah well, it's nice to know of a kindred spirit across the Pacific.
