I'm not sure who is in charge of the coming events postings, or info.
But I was always under the belief that April Fools' ended at noon.
And did not run all day as posted. Smack No big deal, just trying to help.

Here is a final word according to Wikipedia (if you believe everything you read there):

Traditionally, in some countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Australia, Canada, and South Africa, the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool". It is for this reason that newspapers in the U.K. that run a front page April fool only do so on the first (morning) edition. Elsewhere, such as in France, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Germany, Brazil and the U.S., the jokes last all day.

An optimist would say "lets be multicultural about this". A pessimist would say "I guess we know where our calendar comes from". Jester

Well, seeing as how this issue is near and dear to my heart, i'll point out that there is an event planned for April Fo, er First.

An astute observer will also note that the event owners are identified clearly as "fools of the fourth month". Not that I would say anything like that about such nice people, i'm just saying the finer points arent completely lost.

Its not going to stop us though - or SA!

LOL
