America West and United Airlines fly right into the Monterey Peninsula Airport, otherwise, the shuttles to and from SF and San Jose airports are every ninety minutes.

MBARI tour

We're trying to set up a tour of MBARI for Friday afternoon, probably at 1 and 3 pm, for two groups of 20. How many people would be there that early?

I might come, I might not, To be perfectly honest, I don't have a clue on what's going on. My brain only has a maximum 50 bytes you know... :oops:

I hope to make it by then... I'm not sure if I'm flying or driving, though; if the latter, I may make it by 3 more likely than 1. I'm not sure if my SO will be coming as well... so I might be 2 people, although she also may not be able to get off work Friday and would have to meet me Saturday or something.

Thanks, Monty! For now, it's not important to have all the details about when you'll arrive and how many will be in your party, but when we start planning the actual groups for MBARI, numbers and arrival time will be crucial.

Details to come - including transport 20 miles up the coast. If we're carpooling, that will be another detail.

See you in August!

Those of us who are driving will probably be able to accommodate a couple of extra people per vehicle for MBARI carpool purposes, unless of course somebody is coming via SUV/minivan/dirigible or some other conveyance with more passenger seating.

Hi Carol

I don't know about chat while we're in Monterey, but anyone who wants to can plan a chat during TONMOcon. This will be easier when the schedule is set. Chat will definitely be used to make plans before TONMOcon and after to update everyone who couldn't come.

Maybe someone will videotape the talks. We'll ask everyone who speaks whether they'd be willing to put a description of their work and their presentations online, too. I'm sure people will put pictures on the site.

Brainstorms welcome - please share your ideas to make TONMOcon an event to remember!

I plan to arrive Thursday afternoon, so I'll be there for the MBARI tour, either time.

Folks: Unfortunately, it turns out that Dr. Steve O'Shea will not be able to attend TONMOcon due to timing and logistics. I don't need to tell you that this is a real bummer!!

Other than the obvious void, the event should remain unchanged, and we certainly have enough content to fill Saturday's events.

But he'd have plenty of time to make it to Cleveland on Sunday for the Neil Diamond show!

Steve is fighting some pretty major battles over here right now, and is under seige. I am terribly sorry!!

No worries. It's disappointing news, but I'm sure we all understand. I can't speak for Mr. Diamond though.

As for being under siege, remember the famous words of Chesty Puller:

"We're surrounded. That simplifies the problem!"

Sorry to hear that, I hope you can cope. Does that mean one of your minions can use your plane ticket, at least?

How about a taped (or preferably on disc) talk from SOS to be projected? Or a streaming-feed discussion (could be a logistical nightmare,actually)?

I guess this means the ND impersonator will have to be called-off as well... :sad:

Well, we will all just have to see Steve at TONMOcon II. The first round will be on me... or Greg, or Tony or somebody. Not sure Rebecca would approve of me buying all those pints... :cheers:
