[Histonet] Histonet and NSH Conventions

Here is how simple it can be: have a table or little kiosk affair set up 
and call it the Histonet "Out-post" (clever eh?), and that's it! Then 
Histonetters can stop by the Out-post anytime they wish; to hang 
out, finish their coffee or whatever and can expect that anyone else 
they meet there is someone they are probably familiar with from the 

Organizing an "event", even a small one can be a huge task 
especially at a large convention like ours. I think the "KISS" 
principle applies here (i.e. keep it simple stupid). And the Out-post 
idea should not be too burdensome or taxing (with conflicting 
meetings, etc.), because I think most everyone at least takes coffee 

What really sucks about all this, is you all will organize something 
for next year and by the time I'm able to get to another convention 
the whole idea will have fizzled again! :-(  
I think I need a little cheese with that w(h)ine!
Have a nice day!
