No, he wasn't, but I got the impression that he is "included" every year by
getting a call during the dinner at the Fathmans' house. That happened last year
and this year, and both times there was the general announcement, "Grover's on
the phone. Does anyone want to talk to him?" I believe I heard someone say
he'll be at the meeting this next year in the UK.
Was Grover Smith at this year's TSE society meeting?
