Since I live in Sterling, VA, I would almost feel guilty about failing to
attend a conlang event right here in my own backyard.  I have not been very
involved in Lojban other than downloading your excellent reference manual
and browsing through it.  Would this event be of interest to an old
artlanger such as I?  Would I be able to contribute anything?
