The work party on the 23rd has been canceled due to the work having been done. Effective immediately, the parking issue has been resolved. We are allowed to use the MTA lot just north of the power station. Don’t park on Aetna after 9 PM. Thanks to Milt Stevens. (Standing Ovation!) Milt has also agreed to be the liaison to MTA. We can also park Friday nights and weekends. We have a food ban, don’t bring in food. Drinks are OK, but leave food in the car. This begins March 1, and lasts UFN. Committee Reports Patron Saints Maureen Garrett Matthew Tepper: Maureen is a sweet and pleasant person who attended Loscon in the 80s and early 90s. She ran the official star wars fan club for a time. She is known for her beautiful and eclectic outfits, and her art -- describing a circle, and filling it in with unearthly landscapes. She has not been seen since the 06 Worldcon. Nick Smith: met her in the 1980s because of hotel room mixups. She and Meg Garrett would be mixed up by hotels. She went to a Filkharmonic concert to find out who this other Garrett was, and wound up taking a songbook with her to share at work. Maureen Garrett was given three cheers and all this and a bag of chips.
