Actually John H., that's not correct.

The Board has been crunching numbers and twisting arms for months in order to hold some sort of event. And it was that way up until the last 48 hours.

As for "announcing an annoucement" that's also not what was planned. Someone, somewhere, couldn't follow instructions. It's no accident that the actual, verbatim press release was published on IF1 FB page well in advance of the planned press release for 0600PDT today.

Some folks just don't get it...
