  1. I would like to propose a " Meeting of The Minds " this spring . The ideal location for this event would only be fitting at La Jolla Shores , Genes recent stomping grounds . We could have an after noon POTLUCK , BYOB . It would be a chance for everyone to reacquainted with our beloved Professor and friend Eugene Ray CIRCA 1975 .
