LBG January Meeting Minutes
7 p.m. Thursday, February 10th, 2022

We're back to virtual meetings for at least a little while. This morning, the county extended their mask mandate for at least another three weeks -- March may be remote, too.

Our Zoom Meeting was interrupted -- we got "Zoom bombed." Our meeting got shut down to clear the crashers. There was a bit of an intermission to get the meeting going again. Our feeds to social media were killed, and the meeting was resumed on Zoom, only. The second half of the meeting will be posted as a private youtube video.

  • Free State Collaboration
    • The collab beer will be on tap at the Kansas Craft Brew Expo
