 From what I can gather*, Saturday is the official holiday.

I didn't see anything that defined the parameters for the when the 
"substitute holiday off" should occur.

This suggests to me is that KWLUG should clarify, for future reference, 
what happens when the holiday falls on a weekend. Is it safe to assume 
we are mostly 9-5, Mon-Fri working stiffs, and that most of the time the 
Monday is the "substitute holiday off"?

BTW, how long do I have to stick around before I start getting my KWLUG 
vacation pay?
