   That's funny.  I was told (I had a layer of abstraction in viewing
the schedule, as everything went through the GoH Liaison
middleperson) that I could "help" with the Giant Zendo, but that I
wasn't the person who put it on the schedule, so I couldn't make any
changes (the most pressing of which was that I wanted to take the
word "teach" out of the listing -- if it's only an hour, then it'd be
more helpful if people could show up already knowing tabletop Zendo).

   Hey, what does Arisia use for stones?

   If you could show me whatever version of the schedule (gaming,
panels?) you can see, I'd be appreciative.   ;->

   Eeyore will be there in person, oh yeah -- he can't run camera for
me remotely!  I also just got an LJ comment from Kat Dutton that says
she's going.  Additionally, I have talked to:  Chris Cieslik, Jason
MacIntosh, mayyyyyybe Tim Sieger (long shot, what with parenthood),
Nathan Dilday... DEFinitely Mark Hartstein, possibly maybe Denis
Moskowitz, other, other, other.  I know that there's people I'm
overlooking.   ::pre-emptive forehead slap::   Not Zarf, he's not as
studl^H^H^H^H^Hinsane as Cthulhia, doing both the Hysteria Munt and
the (obviously far superior) con in the same weekend.   ;-7

   Good, you can come to the FPGoH presentation on Sunday night,
then!   ;-D

   There's Red/Blue/Green/Yellow for Zendo, right (said the purist)?

   Just FYI, I think I'm either scheduled opposite or Not Operational

   Yeah, I also wanted to make Giant Zendo longer, but I "couldn't
make changes" (because I didn't have ownership of it).  I /think/ I
have an hour of downtime, that some of which could go to some Giant


P.S.:  Reminder to self:  order some 10th Anniversary card packs.
