Either day works for me.

This sounds good.  I think it might be a good idea to pad the schedule
by a half hour on the front end though -- schedule 2.5 hours and plan to
have the first half hour taken up by setting up the projector, resetting
circuit breakers, running out for coffee, people struggling to find
parking, etc.  If the session gets started only 15 minutes in, great --
but my experience is, don't plan on it. :)
