    Did anyone else not get an email invitation to this? I’m a little worried my new version 2 email may have filtered it out.

    Thanks for letting us know, Mark. We received a few RSVPs to this email today, but we did not receive any from the first notice sent on Oct. 31. It would be unfortunate if some of the language in the text caused it to be filtered.
