I was thinking I'd schedule myself for North since I've already got
that talk written, but Central's the big problem since it's just 2
days away at this point. If Eric feels like he can talk about his book
on 2 days notice I'll put him on the schedule. Otherwise I guess we'll
just say it's "general discussion" and head to the bar/pizza place a
little earlier.

That sounds great, I'm just worried about the short notice for this
