Well, seem like tax time kicked our collective asses this year...for various reasons, financial, personal, hygenic (don't ask), almost nobody could go to ChiCon this year. So, for 2000, y'all are on your own for grouping and visiting and whatnot. (Ed. Note: Hey, I have a guest room!) Hopefully next year people's lives will be a tad more settled and we can get the tradition back in swing.
