Al, outspoken critics of what?  TU?  Smith River TU?  Smith River? Officers?  Rania's Restaurant?  Agenda? And why would you beat your head against a brick wall X 3 because the critics didn't show?  I think you should be grateful. 

So, what about a quick synopsis of the meeting?  Anything new? Thanks.

Just got home - will write up the minutes and post sometime in next few days.

Concerning the critics - Nothing specific, just voicing my frustration. Seems like some of them would be willing to grab the reins but "No, sorry, I'm too busy" b'; b'; b';
