                                        Ambassador Quincy says, "Get up a group or meet some new folks."

                                        "If you don't feel like getting up a table - humans really do have some funny terms - I just know my Dad never lets me get up on a table. Anyway, I think it means that you can go by yourself, rather than fussing with a group. KCC will put you at a table - good way to meet some new folks. Now that, I understand!"
