Thank you very much for the information about a possible SouthPole-sium in 2021. My answer is: Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Anders Larsson


Please put me down as 'very interested, and a possible definite - maybe' - but then, I will be eighty three!
Michael Tarver


It sounds like an excellent proposal.
My response will be "Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed."
Ken Thomas


We would like to come if possible.
Mick and Linda Parker


I would definitely be interested in attending your SouthPole-sium in California in 2021. I just launched a book about my expedition to the South Pole with my husband (unsupported, unguided, unassisted).
If possible, I would be interested in speaking about my adventure at the conference.
I look forward to learning more as the SouthPole-sium 2021 further develops. You can put me down as—I'll definitely be there in your survey.
Chris Fagan


Please put me down as "definitely will attend".
Brad Borkan


I'm likely to come.
Look forward to hearing more.
Anne Strathie


"Darn! I can't make it or it just won't work for me."
Jim & Geraldine McAdam


Sounds like fun and I am interested. Would probably attend.
Bruce Larsen


Put me down as between likely and maybe.
Jay Platt


I'm likely to come.
Shirley Metz


Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Hardy Lapot


After three European venues I guess the next one should be in the States. I'm not sure if I can commit to a Californian Trip at this moment, but please keep me informed of your plans.
Jack Wright


Regret to say for me that is a flight too far so I shan't be able to pitch-up.
Gus Jones


Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Paul Chaplin


Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Valmar Kurol


Darn! I can't make it or it just won't work for me.
Jay Satterfield


I would be likely to attend.
Mark McLean


Mike and I had such a wonderful time in Dublin that California seems very tempting. If we were a couple of years younger, and climate heating not such an issue, we'd be coming. But those two are quite unlikely to change. We'd like to stay in the communication loop though, because if the SouthPole-sium comes back to Europe we'll be there!
Hilary Shibata and Mike Hibbs


As of now we would be very interested.
Tom Henderson and Millie Eidson


As much as I would love to attend a California South Polesium, I think it will be beyond my travel budget for next year! Therefore I'm a "Darn! I can't make it or it just won't work for me."
Fuchsia Voremberg


Unlikely but keep me informed.
Deirdre Stam


Despite a poor attendance record I may well be a candidate in May 2021. Thus my response is: 'Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.'
Bob Headland


Lovely to see the SouthPole-siums continuing. I think I'd be unlikely to come to California but I'd love to be kept updated. So write me in as: Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Elizabeth Leane


A nice idea. If I'm still alive in 2021 and fit to travel I would give you a definite maybe…but who knows? At the moment I am not even buying green bananas!
Julian Salisbury


These are good news about the SouthPole-sium. However, my answer must be a maybe, as I'm not sure I can take another expensive trip to the US next year. Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Gina Koellner


Please put me down as a maybe for now and will hopefully be able to decide middle of next year one way or another.
Rose Waldron


Sorry, Robert, I can't make it. Wishing you every success.
Heather Rossiter


Sounds like a very good idea, and I am happy to say: I'm likely to come.
Judy Skelton


I would LOVE to come on a visit to Bay area, but May is extremely unlikely unfortunately.
Max Jones


I will inform you that I will not attend in 2021.
Jahn Rønne


I would be Response 3—unlikely but keep me informed.
Neale Webb


Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed.
Michael Smith


Yes please, sounds a great idea and I love California.
Karen Woods


Count me in on California!
Shane Murphjy


Maybe. Hard to say now. Unlikely, but please keep me informed. I would love to come if at all possible.
Lawrence Howard


Darn! I can't make it or it just won't work for me.
David Stam


I'll definitely be there. Ireland was fun, even though I didn't have anything to present, it was great to see everybody again, and the field trip was great. I did manage to see my two musician friends in dublin while I was there—everyone's a musician in dublin it seems.
Peggy Nelson


I would definitely attend, and my wife would probably be there for the opening or a social session.
Peter Spielmann


I am likely to come to SouthPole-sium in San Francisco area.
Karen Ronne Tupek


I'm likely to come.
Isobel Williams


Put me down for maybe!
Pat Warburton


Put me down as, I'm Likely to come.
Robert Pope


I am at California College of the Art in SF and we could possibly be space donors.
Leslie Roberts


I'll obviously be there.
Michael Rosove


For now, put me down as a maybe and keep me informed.
Charles Lagerbom


I'm in the maybe but keep me informed catagory.
Tricia Wood


I am sure the Norwegian Club in San Francisco is available at a very good rate. They have their own building. I am an honorary member, and speak there once a year. I can lecture there the Thursday before the event. Nice bar area, great chef, several floors for displays etc. Dinners, drinks and recreation all in one building.
The weekly meeting is on Thursdays. May 17th is always reserved, as this is the Norwegian National Day.
Geir Kløver


I'm a maybe.
Laura Kissel


I'll definitely be there if I'm still upright.
Rob Stephenson
