Sounds great! I look forward to seeing what you put together.
Regarding the next meeting, I am open to suggestions. One idea could be
to demonstrate one or two of the new features of 8.3. This is a topic
that anyone who is interested in joining LAPUG could put together as a
presentation. We could discuss further at the Convention.
