Thank you Mike. If I can't make it, though I will still try to come, I will definitely listen to the presentation sometime this weekend.

Congratulations on the zoom setup. I was in another meeting so I could neither stay long, nor participate actively, but it seemed to really work well.

Yes from my advantage as a participant it was a great medium.  The snacks were a little lean, however … but then it is Lent.

I know of a  few members who  had technical difficulties that need to be sorted out, and I suspect those who attempted to connect with a slow wireless connection had some buffering issues.  While some folks were "in and out" of the meeting, the total attendance, including visitors was 56 folks -- a very good attendance rate.
