  2. This promises to be a very informative presentation which I plan to attend. However, it would be a good idea if you would integrate the basketball schedule into your future planning as this directly conflicts with a home game which I will record and watch later – don’t tell me the score!

      We appreciate your willingness to give up watching the game live to attend Mr. Silver’s presentation and we definitely try to take into account other activities which might conflict with planned CH2020 activities. Unfortunately, that date was the only date Mr. Silver could come given the very high level of interest in his topic and the many requests to hear him.

Let us know what you think!
