  • Des Moines site seems to have fallen through. Still no response from Simpson's conferences director. @KWierso@ (I probably won't make it to the meeting tonight. Lemme know if you-all still want me to continue trying to reach Simpson.)

Mar 18 20:15:31 <Iowan> There was a meeting Tuesday - perhaps that got mistaken for the weekly meeting...
