    Well, let's see... it's an easy guess that Jeremy wasn't among the
    group since he was (supposedly) at sea around that time. ;-)
    
    I've seen your photo on the physics site, so I think that's probably
    you in the middle of the group of 3 on the deck of the historical
    sailing ship ("Mystic"? At least judging by the nameplate on the wheel
    of one of the previous pics), and probably also you at the podium in a
    couple of them as well as in front of the projected star atlas.
    
    The gentlemen in the green polo shirt and white/khaki slacks looks like
    it might be Ken Gebhardt (sp?), and the rest I don't have a clue about.
    
    But it looks like an interesting group (and thanks again for sending
    personal invites to the list members), hopefully I'll be able to attend
    a future one down the road. I take it that Mystic schedules these every
    other year or so?
