Re: FYI- Possible ESR Visit

Okay, to extend the information solicitation, if you are interested in his
visit, what area would be most convenient for you to travel to? We have
LUG members on this list all over Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, etc. So,
would St Louis, Carbondale, Champaign, or Chicago be convenient for you?
(If everyone can make it to St Louis, then I'll help them make
arrangements, else if enough for SIU then I'll help SIU, also enough for
UofI.. you get the picture)

(also, remember this is just a solicitation for interest, no planning is
being made yet)
