July & August Mini’app’les Meeting Announcement


Just a reminder — and for those who missed last night’s meeting — we won’t be meeting at LuminFire in July or August. We’ll resume regular meetings at that location in September. Our plan is to to host informal “meet ups” at local tap houses in place of the regular meetings. We’ll gather around a table to swap stories and tips. We can pass around a “screen” as necessary but we won’t have any “front of room” presentations. We’re scouting locations now. If you have a favorite, please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you there!
