25 October 2001, 20:00. Atlanta Diner
Due to the upcoming holidays, the November meeting will be the Monday before Thanksgiving.
Book Group: Next meeting will be 15 November 2001 at OutWrite. This is a special meeting, since Keith Hartman will be there for Q&A, a reading, and book signing. [Part of his promotional tour for Gumshoe Gorilla.}
Treasury: No expenditures or collections since last meeting
Events: Turnout for Shore Leaves has been disappointing. They are definitely not really drawing in new people. On the plus side, there have been several new events added to the calendar. The most discussed is Ed’s Halloween Party. A trip to the Festival of Trees was suggested for the December Shore Leave.

New Group: Croc is willing to host/coordinate a discussion group. This grew out of the Dragon*Con planning/discussions. The focus will be on discussion – details to follow.
Dragon*Con: Kris posted a copy of *what*has*been*submitted* to the list. We are now waiting for their reply, which will be at the end of November, or in early December. The Big Push to accomplish things will be in April, assuming they accept the proposal.
