Looks lovely... I might have to swing by! But of course we all have the same personal business on Sunday. Smiley

Guess I'm going to have to outdo you in the food department!

How do we feel about selecting a Special Convention Chair to move the convention along in such times in this schedule as I'm asleep or in class or club activities IRL? I'd float Xahar for both this position and the job of helping draw up some of the framework for a platform, but I'm not sure if he's actually officially a party member yet or not.

Wonderful. I plan to have a few basic theoretical propositions ready by the opening of the convention which we can use to start debate and start building our platform.

Maybe we should also think about nominating a Presidential candidate, BTW ?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

*Sips Champagne*

I would like to give some kind of speech at the convention.  I'll leave it up to the bosses to choose when are where, and such.

*slices Stilton cheese, puts slices on Italian bread* What sort of speech would you like to make, Barnes? I had been thinking that I would give the opening speech myself, but depending on how the plenary sessions go, I should think we should be able to find some time to fit you in.

Oh, something about coming back to Atlasia, what I tried to accomplish as SoIA and how it translates to our platform.  Lots of stuff about the working man. Smiley
