What about 1/2 track ME and 1/2 track European upstairs, 2 tracks European

You know me, I *love* meetings.  :)  AND it would give us a chance to 
finally put faces to all these names.  This type of schedule would allow 
folks to drive in that morning instead of arranging for crash space Friday 
night too.  To quote Chevy Chase, "I-I-I-I LIKE it!"

Geez, this is sounding better and better every time I read it.  Lots of 
dancing, no fighting, no feast.... woo-hoo!  I believe that I'm in the 
minority here, but I've found that I really do NOT enjoy SCA feasts.  Too 
much time, too little palatable food, too costly.  I've often left feasts 
hungry, which is a shame.  Of late, I've begun packing my own dinner intead 
of buying Feast.  So to this corn-fed Midwesterner, the idea of snarfing 
down a face-ful of Bar-Be-Que sounds abso-fragging-lutely wonderful!  Count 
me in, and gimme an ear of corn on the side!
