B-Greek SBL Meeting

From: Jeffrey B. Gibson (jgibson000@ameritech.net)
Date: Sun Nov 01 1998 - 19:05:35 EST

This is the early November call to all B-Greeks who are attending SBL,
but who have not let me know that you are doing so, to repsond to me off
list and add your name to out ever growing list (names of those who have
so far indicated the intention of being at SBL are attached below -- a
decidedly masculine group; what ever happend to Ginger?).

In the meantime, I repost Edward Hobbs' message regarding meetings times
and places.

********Colleagues of the B-Greek List:

Again, as last year, Jeffrey Gibson has proposed that those of us attending the national SBL meeting in November gather for a time of getting to know each other and sharing interests and concerns.

He and I have consulted with each other, and with the now-available schedule of the SBL sessions, and propose the following:

Everyone wishing to join in such a meeting, please send a message saying so, to Jeffrey Gibson. Jeffrey is the "Official Collector of Notifications re: B-Greek Meeting in Florida"!

Please send him word if you plan to attend, OFF-LIST, to:


To simplify the process, we have decided on what may be the only time when there is only one conflicting session, when we could also find a room in which to meet:

TIME: 7:45--8:45 a.m. Sunday

(The one conflict looks serious: It is the annual business meeting of SBL. But there is no political issue impending, to my knowledge, and these sessions are cut-and-dried in most cases, and very sparsely attended. I'm not an officer this year, and while Edgar Krentz may be, I doubt if anyone else on the List has any need to be there.)

WHERE? I will search for an empty room in the same hotel as the Book Exhibit, on Saturday morning. This meeting place will be made known by 11:30 a.m. Saturday, through the kind services of GRAMCORD. (I am once more presuming on the kindness of Dale and Paul, who are not only subscribers to this List but creators of two of the most powerful tools for study of the Greek New Testament.) That is, ask at the Gramcord booth any time after 11:30 Saturday.

EARLY-BIRD HOB-NOB MEETING: Jeffrey and I will be at the Gramcord booth at 11:30 Saturday morning, hoping that some of you might want to make a head start on hob-nobbing with each other. Very informal--we'll just clutter up the aisle, make it hard for Dale and Paul to demonstrate Accordance and Gramcord, and generally get in everyone's way. But we will make lots of noises to visitors at the booth that plunking their check down TODAY for one of these tools is the only scholarly thing to do (and we'll hope that Paul and Dale will forgive us for our intrusion on their space).
