We at ACEC have listened intently to the input of those who have
attended our event in the past so as to make them happy.  This is what we
have done this year:

- Some unhappy people have told us, "ACEC, why do you hold this event in
  the middle of the worst winter weather that Ohio has to offer?"

Our response this year is to move the event from December to November,
where the ending of fall tapers into a somewhat less harsh climate
(we hope).

- Some other not completely satisfied people have told us, "ACEC, why do
  you host this event on a weekday making it almost necessary to risk
  getting a speeding ticket or causing an accident to make it here whilst
  braving the idiotically harsh elements of Ohio's December"

Our response this year is to not only include the above point but to also
move the date from its well known Wednesday slot and bring it to a lesser
known Saturday slot.

- Some other people afflicted by unbalanced Chi have told us, "ACEC, why
  do you host this event so late in the evening that I can't see the cops
  as they deviously hide behind the darkened snowdrifts on the splendid
  Ohio Winter Interstates?"

Our response this year to appease these brethren was to not only include
the above two points, but also change the schedule to a more brighter
timeframe (we hope) of 1 to 4PM.

- Even another group of do-gooders wanting to improve our event told us,
  "ACEC, why don't you guys serve food at this thing?"

Our response this year is, well, you just can't please everybody can you?
