The time has come and the hour is at hand. SBL officially begins
Saturday morning (the 21st). So here is the final call to all B-Greeks
who will be attending SBL but have not let me know that you intend to do
so. As the posting from Edward (reproduced below) notes, B-Greeks will
be meeting (a) informally on Sat. at 11:30 at the Gramcord Booth in the
exhibition Hall in the Dolphin Hotelthe; and (b) officially on Sunday
morning [place to be determined by Sat. 11:30am and to be posted at the
Gramcord Booth].

So that those of you who will be attending may anticipate whom you will
be seeing, here's the list of those who have so far indicated an
intention to meet:

AKM Adam
Alan Hultberg
Michael Palmer
Rod Decker
Edgar Krentz
Edward Hobbs
Jeffrey Gibson

And here (again) is Edward's post with our meeting instructions:



********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).

> Co-Chair, B-Greek
