    Rumor control says that Hudgins has reschedule the PRC community meeting for 10/23 at the SLHS cafeteria. That space is not large enough to accommodate the crowd that was at Lake Ann; never mind the larger crowd that one can expect as organizers continue to mobilize the community.

    What do you know, Dave?

    • Reston Now

      There will be a story later this morning. I’m trying to get more information.

      • John Farrell

        The crucial questions are: how many people Hudgin’s office thinks the cafeteria can accommodate and will the seating be reconfigured for the meeting from the cafeteria layout?

          Update: I’m being told by both the school and Hudgins’ office that the date/location that was released is not confirmed. I am going to hold off reporting potentially inaccurate information until the confusion is settled. I’m told official information will be released “later today.”
