Aubrey is trying to set up an event next Saturday where Chris Madden
will be performing, just a social gathering.

We will have a table at the gun show in Cow Palace, November 18th-19th.

9. “Just Vote No”
Marcy read in the Marin Independent Journal about all the different tax
measures which are coming up next year. We usually recommend “no”-votes
in general, but other organizations are starting to share the same
message-- “Just vote no on tax measures”. We're happy to hear this but
probably won't take much part in it.

Sorry for the spam, I have some corrections already for my inability to process names. They are updated from the attendance sheet inline below. Sorry!

Hi Nick. Thanks for the timely and accurate minutes--great, as always!
Just a few changes:

1. Here are the details for the wine event hosted by the Alameda County:
Sunday, September 24 1:00-4:00 PM at Westover Vineyards Winery 34329
Palomares Road in Castro Valley (I will be going, so if anyone wants a
ride, just let me know).
2. Actually that's Starchild who will be going to the LNC meeting in
Kansas City to ensure "transparency."
3. On the Mises Celebration event in San Jose, that will be a Sunday and
the date is correct as is.
