I think I know a few folks - or at least they remember me but the night
I "popped in" we arrived late ~8pm and had to leave to catch a 8:45 
train home. I was driving at the far end but Paul would have loved
a drink. It took 5 tries to get someone to tell me who Barbie was (he 
did not look like his picture and was not a local) I dropped off the 
"Bits" and then looked around for a familiar or friendly face but saw no 
one I could remmeber. It was packed with no seats or familiar faces so 
we when we went downstairs (initailly for a drink) we decided to not 
stop and went straight home.

One of my local lugs BAB sessions is routinely in the 30+'s but new 
faces are always welcomed by at least two or three folks. Greeting
is a thankless task but it does help an awful lot.
