Schedule

Pre-conference: If you arrive early, post something on Slack. If I or others are around and available, we might be able to come out for meals or other activities.

Post-conference: Often people stay the day after the conference or for the weekend; informal gatherings have been known to happen.

This year we will only have the upstairs portion of the Parish Hall.

Note that the usual days for the Yurt dinner and progressive dinner have been switched.


Sunday 6:00pm

Welcome Potluck Barbecue at Bruce’s House (107 WhiteRock). Bring something to grill, cook, or share. There will be food, so if you’re just getting into town and don’t have time, or you’re hopeless in the kitchen, just bring your favorite beverage.

Go to the corner of First and WhiteRock, and you’ll see a building of four townhomes with solar panels on the roof. My unit is the furthest away from the corner, and you’ll see a little white cargo trailer in front. I usually have colorful lights on, as well.
