We have a new addition to our list of guest lecturers! In addition to
author David Brin,
we are pleased to announce that David Feiten will be in attendance. Mr.
Feiten has worked at Pixar on projects including A Bugs Life, Toy Story,

Mr. Feiten also has been a Disney Imagineer and is one of the designers
of the original Bear Country Jamboree.
As many have noticed, airfares and airline schedules are very much in

various members that there are bargains to be found. We will be posting
