already contains well-established friends.....It's intimidating, and it's

Of COURSE I understand how scary it is. I find it very difficult to
meet new people. In crowds I find it difficult to even meet OLD friends.
I am teased about it constantly. I blush easily,
and THAT's embarrassing, too. More teasing......but one gets over it.
Eventually. At least by the time NCECA is finished....and you'll find
that you have acquired new friends. And good ones.

I only said that it would be simple enough to post the list, say
you plan a first-time visit to NCECA, and want company/mentoring.
No doubt anyone saying so would get personal/private responses offering
help. I just don't think it needs to be some kind of formal put-someone-
in-charge thing.
