3. I would like to. Haven't done a lot of work on Snowy yet, but I'd

experience with all three, so should be able to get things done.

2. As for me, any weekend in October would be fine except for 15-17.
I'm not sure about flying on Friday afternoons since I should be at
school the whole day, except for Oct 29.
