Here is a slimmed-down view of just the events scheduled for Saturday the 15th. It's one last opportunity to change your mind! I will also denote where I will attempt to be during the day.
I've taken liberties to modify the descriptions for each event to conserve space. As always, refer to the official schedule of record over at PBW 2008 website for complete details.
