I have been to a number of Asilomar weekends and balls and every one was a
stellar event. However, it is a pity that SF continues with a policy of no
briefings at the ball. As some others have noted, well-prepared and
well-delivered briefings do not take time away from dancing. SF has many
very talented people and I would imagine that individuals invited to brief
at the ball would do superbly, and would add greatly to the social success
of the evening.
