Yes, we know it is Sunday. Best we could do this year.

Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow, so be sure to roll your clocks FORWARD by an hour - so 10am is actually logical 9am.

The planned start is 10:30. I am planning to arrive at 10am with coffee. It is roughly 1/2 hour drive from downtown, so please plan accordingly.

Carpooling is highly encouraged. Armin has a van rented that can take up to 15. Jefro is already picking up 2 and has room for 1-2 more. If anyone else has a vehicle and can take people, please pipe up on the email thread or send email to jefro@jefro.net. Note that an uber or lyft will be a $35 trip from downtown.

The day will need to end by 6pm. Jefro will be going back up to the Hilton at top speed to set up the Yocto booth.
