[OTT_OSGEO] GIS Day - OSGEO presence

Hi, Grahame,

As you may have heard, Carleton faculty may be on strike tomorrow,  
and that includes me.  I am pretty optimistic that it won't happen,  
but there's always the chance that someone slips up and breaks down  

In the case of a strike, I have asked the union for permission to  
cross the picket line and come to the event as an OSGEO volunteer  
(i.e. "not wearing my Carleton faculty hat").  I have not received a  
reply yet, but hope they will allow it - it seems completely  
reasonable to me given the aims of GIS Day, but I don't want them to  
label me as a strike breaker.  The picket line will be letting  
everyone through (probably slowed down as they give out information)  
but of course normally members of the union are not supposed to cross.

If you don't mind coming even if there is a strike, I guess what I'll  
do is leave the materials tonight (brochures and a banner) at the  
main Geography office, Loeb Building B349, with your name on it so  
that you could pick them up even if I'm not allowed across the picket  
line.  Is that OK with you?  I could probably also arrange to get you  
hooked up with a student volunteer to find your way to the right  
place and get set up.

This is all hopefully just a contingency plan that won't have to be  
acted upon, but just in case...
