Subject: ADS annual meeting - tape recorder?

Is anyone planning to bring a tape recorder to the ADS annual meeting in

Chicago next week?

If it is a recorder with decent sound quality and volume to use in a medium

sized meeting room, I would like to borrow it to use with Sali Tagliamonte

and Shana Poplack's paper Friday afternoon, Dec. 29, approx 4:45 to 5:05 pm.

They are the only ones who have requested this particular kind of AV

equipment, and we could save trouble and expense by borrowing one you happen

to bring.

In return for the savings, you'd get a FREE LUNCH at our annual luncheon

Saturday the 30th, Virginia McDavid speaking.

You can reply directly to me AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] rather than the whole list.

One cancellation to our program, by the way: Silke Van Ness will not be able

to attend to give her talk on Pennsylvania German at 3:30 pm Friday the 29th.

So the schedule for other talks may be adjusted slightly.

See you all in Chicago, I hope! - Allan Metcalf, ADS executive secretary
