I am very pleased to see that four bots (Erica13, Fuego13, Orego12 and 
pachi) have registered already.  I like early registration, it makes 
things easier for me.

Howver four registrants, more than a week in advance, is a record.  It 
makes me wonder if I have done something wrong.  Did I make it clear to 
everyone that the event is not this weekend (November 6th) but next 
(November 13th)?
