I would leave it open.  it's a good survey ... and if Guy doesn't see a
barrier the rest of the coordinators can complete.  I was travelling on
Friday or would have posted Guy's note to me to hold off.

I completed your survey provisionally and  so saw the other comments.  I
want to endorse the comment from the coordinator who suggested we add a
meeting day to the NBF trip if we have to forego the Spring meeting.
