Extra Lunch: Thursday December 11th

11:30 am, 1st Avenue food court downtown, at the bigger tables near the entrance.

Technical Meeting / Social: Friday December 12th, 6:00 pm

In December we do something like board or card games, video games, etc because it's just too close to Thanksgiving and Christmas to fit in a social and a speaker.

Tina is hosting a gaming night at her house. Email her if you need address and/or directions. Start time is 6:00 pm. Note that this is NOT our usual second Thursday, we pushed it back one night so people don't have to deal with getting to work in the morning.

We play whatever you bring. Please consider bringing a folding table and chairs, board games, card games, video games, video game system accessories, and/or snacks and beverages. RSVP's of the types of stuff you're bringing would be appreciated so we don't have overstocks of some items such as four people hauling their folding table and chairs, or everyone bringing chips.

Dinner of pizza from Pizza Hut will be ordered promptly at 6:30, don't be late. Please bring cash to chip in for your portion of the pizza if you choose to partake.

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!

Should we run some previous sessions again (maybe something you really wanted to see but missed out on)? What type of topics are good, what type are bad?
