LBG June Meeting Minutes
7 p.m. Thursday, June 9th, 2022

Sorry it took a couple of days to get my act together on typing up this month's meeting minutes. I hope to do better next month.

We were back indoors for this meeting and attempted to have it on both Zoom and Youtube, but we ran into a few technical issues. We did get it on zoom, but the feed to Youtube failed, so we have no recording of this meeting. We have come up with two workarounds, and we should be able have a recorded meeting next time.

We had a swap meet in the parking lot before the meeting. I didn't find any takers for all my 22oz bottles, but I did score a sweet Perlick Sanke tap from Orville for only $5!
