If the QP ringers have time to stop by, they can do so as well.  Alice had
offered to print out maps and bring them to Groton that day, but maybe I'll
try to get the directions in advance so that people can figure out what to
do.  Often we've had lots of really good food at these potlucks, but there
was one lunch for which almost everyone brought cheese and crackers.  Not a
well-rounded meal.  This is a plea for more creativity.

The closest commuter rail station is actually Ayer.  The train is scheduled
to arrive there at 9:44 and Alice said she could swing by and pick people 
on her way to the tower if needed. If enough people are coming from town to
warrant it, I've offered to loan Don my car so that two cars will be 
from Cambridge.
