ANNOUNCEMENTS

Virtual Hoppy Hours are going to be on the 3rd Thursday of the month (instead of weekly as they have been).
This is our Fourteenth time having a virtual meeting. We'll continue with virtual meetings until we can have an in-person meeting.
We will be meeting virtually for at least one more month. We’re talking to the church about when we can meet again. It looks like we will be back in person in August.
We had an in person hoppy hour in June (the 3rd) at the Gaslight. On July 1st we will have another hoppy hour at 23rd Street Brewery)
We are starting up a “shared equipment” spreadsheet where we can share equipment back and forth.
