Doug kindly corrected my mistaken impression that the Maker Faire was tomorrow - I was only one month off...

-seriously calendar-challenged,  Karim

So any news?  I don't really want to pack up the whole field if it's not going to be allowed.  In other news, we came up with our own scheduling issue.  Almost everyone on my robotics team will be at a math/science qualfier competition here in Dallas tomorrow.  I'll still bring their robot out to demo and my own boys will come out to Tyler around 2pm.
