Just a word of thanks to Peter McCracken and Centrum for putting up with our group this year at Fort Worden State Park! And a big thanks as well to the logistics committee for coordinating all the small details: Jill Linzee, Jens Lund, Willie Smyth.

Congratulations once again to Mary Kay Gabriel and Suzanne Reed, our 2008 awardees for the Bea Roeder Scholarship for the Future of Public Folklore in the West.

…… and a huge shout of THANKS to the staff of La Isla Mexican Restaurant in Port Townsend for accommodating such a large and rowdy group Monday night!

I encourage anyone in attendance who was snapping photos of the meeting to log on to our Flickr group and upload your photos! Learn more about getting a Flickr account here.

Safe traveling, and I hope to see everyone before next year!
