I'm available all day Saturday and Sunday after 1:30 PM.

I too am excited about this. I believe that this is a chance for CLUG to 
step up to the plate and make a name for it's self. As mentioned, the 
exposure from an event such as this will be substantial. This is not an 
overwhelming task and one IMHO that we are certainly able to pull off.
