Thank you so much for this head's up. I'm currently in Santa Barbara, so I
won't be able to give anybody a ride down - but I will definitely be
attending! I will also try to wrangle some friends/family to come, but
we'll see how successful I am at that. If anybody needs a ride from SB to
Lompoc, I might be able to (depending on space). Thanks Danny for bringing
this to my attention!!
