You now see why the VIR and HTC committees start requesting volunteers to 
sit at the tables prior to the meeting.  They will request volunteers and 
have a schedule for members to sign up for specific slots.  This allows 
coverage and commits the person to be there.    I was sort of involved at 
the beginning of this idea and then heard nothing until just prior to the 
meeting.  It is difficult to manage however, if the HistoNet Outpost 
continues it should be more formal to be sure the booth and meetings of the 
group are not conflicting with other NSH functions or classes.  Hope this
