6pm: "not just a good idea...



...Its the LAW!"

Sunday, the day of our meeting, is also the day Daylight Savings Time ends.
Set your clocks back an hour and come over at the real 6:pm. The U.S. Code
states:
============================================================================
 260a. Advancement of time or changeover dates 

     (a) Duration of period; State exemption 

     During the period commencing at 2 o'clock antemeridian on the first
Sunday of April of each year and ending at 2 o'clock antemeridian on the
last Sunday of October of each year, the standard time of each zone
established by sections 261 to 264 of this title, as modified by section
265 of this title, shall be advanced one hour and such time as so advanced
shall for the purposes of such sections 261 to 264, as so modified, be the
standard time of such zone during such period; however, (1) any State that
lies entirely within one time zone may by law exempt itself from the
provisions of this subsection providing for the advancement of time, but
only if that law provides that the entire State (including all political
subdivisions thereof) shall observe the standard time otherwise applicable
during that period, and (2) any State with parts thereof in more than one
time zone may by law exempt either the entire State as provided in (1) or
may exempt the entire area of the State lying within any time zone.
