  1. Chris, thanks for letting me know. I’ll email the organizers immediately and have them get back to you.

  2. Chris, we will reserve a place for you. I have no idea why that email didn’t work for you. We have been getting registrations at it.

    Thanks for your interest,

    Jim Faulconer

  3. This slightly mysterious impasse has now been resolved, and Jim has kindly contacted me. So by all means please delete all this, as it would not appear relevant to anyone else.
