RE: San Antonio Baren Summit : Now online!


The Accomodations link is not yet up, but email if you want to bunk up with locals. The Riverwalk is just 15 minutes away by car, as is the King William District. Bus service to the summit site is good from The downtown area as well.

If you come earlier or stay later, we can accomodate that.
I know some good volunteer tour guides!

Also, Austin is just an hour and a half away.

I've been twitchy as heck to put Elvis through his paces, but there were a few other things I needed to do first. First I thought I'd like to try making a little registration jig similar to what I use when printing by hand. (I know some other registration systems for working on a press, but
