Other: Dr. Volcansek is also an early member of Bangkok's Patpong Corkscrew Club. Though she was not a member when the club was first founded in Bangkok (Thailand) in 2001, she had hoped to attend the club's 2nd AGM in the fall of 2002. This second meeting was held at Kings ... (a transvestite bar) ... located on Bangkok's notorious Patpong 1. However, something 'came up' and she didn't come. The 2003 AGM of the Patpong Corkscrew Club will be held in Virginia in mid-October. This will be the first time that the PCC has held a meeting outside of Asia (first time outside of Patpong, for that matter). It is hoped that Dr. Volcansek will be able to make this meeting.
