Grr ...

Not that this is your fault, Patrick, it's just frustrating.

Does anyone have time to make vouchers?

For clarity:
"The WPLUG board moves dues be set at $10 per year starting Aug 6 2006"

I agree.

I suppose ... but the membership can decide to force it through anyway, or
eject the board if it pisses them off enough.  I kind of ruled out the
possibility that the membership might experience temporary group insanity
for the duration of the meeting ...

May I impose the request that people make a _serious_ effort to keep
reports as brief as possible!  We're going to struggle to fit this
