hello all ! Thanks for a wonderful party, and for again not getting the national guard overly involved.
This years Vicon was, as ever a major success, except for the foul air from the fires, which didn't actually kill anyone, but prompted a few bailouts. For that, SORRY ! I didn't find out about the air quality until I was there, otherwise I would have warned y'all. Unless there are fires again next year (or, say, mt. doom erupts down in sauronsfield) it'll be lots better next year.
Other than that, the weather was so nice that lots of people were complaining that they clearly were not going to have heatstroke this year. Sorry ! Next year, I'll arrange to have a microwave for you to stick your head in, if the weather turns pleasant.
That said, a few awards are in order.
Okay, enough of that crap. next thing, you'll be wanting to make speeches and stuff.
Okay, looking at the Calender (Cal 8 2003, thanks, ya geeks) I see that next year, August 16 is a Saturday. So, shall we plan on that weekend ? if anyone has a known conflict with that date, let me know asap !
