[tei-council] Ann Arbor spring meeting

Wed Jan 25 11:47:34 EST 2012
I think we need to decide if the real meeting dates are Sunday 15th
through Tuesday 17th. Looking at the list of attendees, there are only
two of us travelling from elsewhere in North America (Brett and myself);
I presume that for all the Europeans, a Saturday arrival would be
better, so I would vote for changing the meeting dates to 15th-17th. If
we do that, we can all head for home on the 18th (or even at the end of
the 17th, if flights permit).
How do the local hosts feel about losing their Sunday?
