A member wrote me offlist to remind me about the Thanksgiving issue.
Short answer: No CABAL meeting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Next meeting will be Saturday, December 12th, 2009.
Deirdre and I traditionally attend LosCon near LAX airport. It's always
on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is (in the USA) always
the 4th Thursday in November. The 4th _Saturday_ in November (otherwise
a CABAL day) is _usually_ that Saturday. So, most years, the 2nd CABAL in
November gets cancelled.
But not always. Here's one of the outlying cases, that of the year

Thanksgiving Day will be Thursday, November 28th. LosCon is over the
following weekend -- a weekend that includes the month's _5th_ Saturday.
That will be a year that LosCon won't conflict with the CABAL dates,
November 9th and November 23rd.
