I thought at least one member of our list had done PBP, but the website list of American participants in the 1999 event didn't list any list members I recognized (maybe I overlooked a name or they were in the 1995 event instead or maybe it was a British, Canadian or Japanese member). It did contain two familiar names, though - Lon Haldeman and Susan Notorangelo.
