Now actually we had a single meeting juit before Delta hit and stopped
then. I was there and so was Tom. I guess you missed that meeting. We
had one or two other attendees.
Since then my physical condition has gotten to the point that
I plan on attending only one more meeting to hand over club property
that I am holding. I can wait until someone in San Francisco can take
over the job of attending every meeting.

Though you shared the screen it could not be copied and i did not think
to do a screen shot.
