Off-Site Meeting (2009-11-13)
Kim, who is the owner of the Sliderule Collector's mailing list in Japan, informed us of his business trip to Tokyo area and suggested to have an off-site meeting. Among attendees were Yoshi who flew from southern island of Kyushu and Hemmi Fan who took 2 hour bullet train trip from Shizuoka. Total attendees were nine including a reporter from a certain national TV network. As usual, we produced our proud possessions over drink and had a good time.
