    The green at Paul Smith's is supposed to be full of canoes this week. So we went there with one canoe (COVID be damned). Hope to see you all there next year!

    WOW, James and Jean....... I had to gaze a moment and try to take it in. A surreal image it is. I had to go back and check. Thanks, I think.

    I really enjoyed your presentation Jim. Thank-you. Was anyone at the campus or is it fully closed?

    Hi Alex:

    The campus was open. Classes in session and new student orientation in progress. This coming weekend is their Alumni weekend. All this bodes well for Assembly there in 2022.

    Best-Jim

    Kathy,
    Thanks for the compliment. If I ever do another video I hope it will be a little better. And your 15 minutes of fame was more like 5 minutes but you deserve all you can get!

    Thank you Rob. I'm looking forward to my first Assembly. Not sure my restoration project will be done by then but it will be fun to attend anyway.

    Rob,
    Don't sweat getting your canoe finished. Come to Assembly with or without a canoe. There will be plenty of canoes there to paddle. And just think, if you come with an empty roof rack you can take another one home!! Brilliant!!

    Jim,
    Excellent thought. You can never have enough canoes. See you there.

    When is the Assembly program usually published? We can't be there the entire week but trying to determine if we should come beginning, or end, of the week.
    Thanks,

    Since this year's Virtual Assembly allowed people to participate remotely, from the comfort of their own (often distant) homes, the Assembly Planning Committee is looking at ways to live stream or record featured (evening) presentations and selected practical workshops to share with those who are unable to attend in person.
    We have the technology. But we do need more volunteers to contribute to their skills to planning and operating this complex production/event.
