Oct & Nov 2017
As evidenced by the logo, we failed to take a photo for Oct or Nov but had some good events even without documentation. We got a good crowd down at the River Pig Saloon in Oct despite a bit too much noise and Josh's car being broken into, good connections were still made! Nov saw a bit of a more intimate event, we were all able to squeeze into a single table, but got to enjoy the special Veteran's Day beer on tap with several new faces. Thanks to all for coming out, more to follow in 2018!
