Here's the Friday schedule, in text from the Word format:

Scheduled Speakers for Friday, June 6

Fridays events with speakers will take place in room 141 of Wilson Hall,
about 250 meters from the Bevill Center. We hope to start at 8:15 sharp, so
please be there by then! This room is one of our teaching halls and can hold
just over 100 people.

The format of this day of talks will typically be for a speaker to have a
45-minute block. A speaker should talk for about 30 minutes, followed by ten
minutes Q&A and a five-minute turn-around to the next speaker. With nine
scheduled speakers this will be a busy day; and to help everyone deal with
this, free coffee deliveries outside of room 141 are scheduled as follows: 8
a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 2:30 p.m. Ice water and the fixings for hot tea will
also be part of these set-ups.

I also have information about the fern sale at the Botanical Garden, which
is at 4747 Bob Wallace Avenue. It's 9-5, and they claim to be selling a
whole buncha species. It should be good!

And, we should be rolling out about 8:30 on Saturday morning.
