March meeting), I think we probably could do a combined WCW/Convention, very
IMHO, even if attendance might be a little less (and it would not be), AKA has
an obligation to move the convention to within the reach of most members. We
just need more members, and then it will be a big success. :-)

This is just my personal effort to find out how likely people from the east and mid-west are to come. They do make up the bulk of AKA members, even if we do have a strong contingent out here now.
