Hi all,

Many of you have received this already from the UGBoD chair, Sebastian 
Kuhn. Take this email just as a reminder that this is an important issue 
for all of us.

Best regards,

Dear Jefferson Lab users,

I promise this is my last reminder - there are only a few days 
left (until next Monday, 10/22) to sign our petition at
I want to thank the over 200 of you who have already done so, but with 
600 people listed on at least one of the 12 GeV proposals, I hope we can 
increase this number even more. Again, please spread the word to your 
colleagues, students, postdocs, advisors,? Also, since I was asked: I 
realize that the text of the petition sounds a bit "parochial", from the 
point of view of US users; however, we urge all international users to 
sign on, as well.

I will present the text and your "signatures" to the NSAC subcommittee 
next week at the DNP meeting in Newport Beach. Please join us for the 
"Hadronic Town Meeting" there if you can: 

Thank you - Sebastian

> - submit your comments directly to the subcommittee via email or the
