Many people met at the Armory to convoy down with us so they wouldn't get lost,
and to ensure that everyone who needed a ride got one.
These are some of the early arrivals.
Irene (pax, in black dress at right) had just moved here from Wisconsin. This very scene is where I first saw her, and it's my first picture that has her in it. It was a good time for her to first see me - I was probably at my most dynamic, herding geeks and organizing a good-sized event that I was quite excited about.
