Hi Team,

     After consultation I have found that more a few of us showing up at 
any one
time at Cafe Enchante on June 6th may bother the operators of the 
as they have legal concerns.  They worry about keeping the business license.

     So we had best delay the en masse return until 4 July 2021
between 11 A.M. and 1 P.M.

     There is at least one new competitor for the users of CentOS up on
www.distrowatch.com and if we have any of those in the group they
might want to check out the current offerings there.

     The June 6th meeting will remain virtual but if you want a snack or
a good cup of joe with ritzy embellishments then you might want
to drop in at Cafe Enchante.

     In person or on Video see you later.
