Subject: Final project meeting


MBMS folks,
Roberto and I have been mullling over an idea for some time for a final
project meeting at Angel Island. Roberto's sailboat can accomodate about
8-10 people across from SF, and mine can accomodate about 6-8. The Angel
Island setting might provide a relaxed, "detached" setting that might be
helpful in ruminating/philosophising about our just-completed project.
What did we do right in the project? What did we do wrong?
The sail across from SF would take about 1.5-2 hours, so if we daparted
from here at 10, on say a Friday in late September (Sept 29 tentative), we
could make it for lunch at a picnic table and then have our meeting. If
some folks would rather take the public transit route rather than trust the
helms of Eittreim/Anima, an/or if there is an overflow crowd, we can
schedule things compatible with the Blue & Gold Ferry Service to Angel
Island.


An agenda might be the following:
Volume status
Follow-on related work ongoing in FY01
Budget status at end-of-FY
Unfinished business
Discussion of MBMS project in hindsight
Other items?


Is this a good idea?, Bad idea? Take too much time? Are there other
agenda items that should be included?


Give me your feedback on this idea......Steve

MBMS folks,
The idea of our final project meeting being held on Angel Island (email
reproduced below) got generally a favorable reception. But many of you
can't make it Sept 29. How does the following week, Friday, Oct 6 sound to
you all?........Steve

Subject: Final project meeting; next iteration


MBMS folks,
Some have suggested that Fridays in general, and especially Friday Oct 6 is
a bad choice because it is a long holiday weekend and people might be
heading off early for a trip. Perhaps Thursday, Oct 5 would be better?
Give me your one-liner feedbacks please if you're got some preferences.
Thanks......Steve

Subject: Final project meeting


MBMS folks,
There are now 8 of us heading off to Angel Island for our last project
meeting on Thursday (Anima, Degnan, Lorenson, McGann, Ryan, Wong, Orzech,
Eittreim). There is a Blue and Gold Fleet Ferry leaving for Angel Island at
11:30 from Pier 41 arriving at Angel I at 12:25. So any of you who would
rather take a faster, more stable platform could meet us there in Ayala
Cove. Roberto and I are planning to push off the dock at South Beach
Marina at 11 am, so we should be arriving at Angel Island at about 1
o'clock plus or minus.
Roberto's boat is 32', mine is 30', so we can easily accomodate 4 in each.
We will supply drinks and sandwiches, with a cup on the table for donations.


So I'm planning to leave Menlo Park at 10am on Thursday, and should be
arriving at the boat at 10:30 and can take 3 or 4 with me in my car. If
you're coming from the north or east and want to meet us at the marina,
look for us going out to F-Dock at 10:30. South Beach Marina is right next
to Pacbell Park. You may have to look around for parking, but I think I can
get a parking sticker for one other car besides mine to park in the marina
space.


If there are any others who have not yet expressed an interest, we can take
2 or 3 additional people, still in reasonable comfort. So let me know if
you're interested.


Those leaving from Menlo Park at 10, lets plant to meet at the flagpole in
front of Bldg 3 and push off at 10. We need one other volunteer driver, if
there are more than 4 of us leaving from here.......Steve

Subject: Final project meeting on Angel Island


Sailors,
Our Angel Island outing on thursday is now up to 12 participants. Wendy
Dahl and myself will have cars at the flagpole on Thursday at 10am for
those of you leaving from here. Some will be joining us at the dock (near
harbormaster's shack, or on/at Roberto's boat "Velero" hopefully within
veiw of harbormastter's shack? - Roberto will be sailing up that morning
from Coyote Pt). We should be arriving in cars at 10:30 and leaving the
dock at about 11am. Depending on weather, etc, I envision getting back to
the dock at about 5pm, but we can vote on that as our first agenda item for
our meeting, depending on weather, people's needs, etc. The Giants have a
game at 5:18, so traffic around the stadim will be pretty messy until after
the game starts.
See you all Thursday morning. Let me know if you've got any questions,
loose ends I've forgotten, etc......Steve

Brian,
Yes, you've been trashing too many of your emails. I've got lunch and
drinks all taken care of for the Angel Island do. Maybe I'll copy this to
all so everyone knows that.
10am at the flagpole for a ride up. Look for me or Wendy.
Mary, Holly and Jingping are finding their own way to the dock. Keep in
mind that a light rail line leads from Bart to the dock now......Steve
