I wonder if it is a Canadian thing, as the http://xugo.org attendance in 
Ottawa has been dropping steadily to only about 8 attendees each month and 
we missed a number of months this year.  Thankfully we just got a new host 
for a meeting room (thank you again to Stilo!) and we're hoping for better 
turnout when we resume in September.

I've always been so envious of Betty's group in Washington and the North 
Carolina group, and I have had the privilege to have spoken at both and 
experienced the comradery and enthusiasm there.  I think that is a tribute 
to each of the organizers and their hard work.
