Yeah, I also think writing a letter is the best policy.  I am the
chairman of our South Asian Society (SAMOSA) and that is also how we
handle it.  Are we getting a door prize for Friday?  Alright see ya.

I vote for option number 3 :P

Actually, I think the letter idea is a good one, thats the way VSMT 
handles situations where people want to run for a board position but 
can't be in attendance, and it has worked out well for us. I think we 
really need a strong group at the elections, and having it on another 
date would cause this to not be the case.
