[fwd] EK: EKAnn: 21st Annual Black Rose Ball

Poster: James Gilly / Alasdair mac Iain <alasdair.maciain@snet.net>

Hullo, all -

I just wanted to pass along the broadside for this year's installment of
the best event I've ever attended. 8)  I just checked the web site - their
dance list isn't up yet, but they promise it will be by the 29th.
