The original schedule was an aspirational guideline, we aren’t sticking to it particularly.

Are we still following this Calendar? Did we have a speaker on 10/1 or did I miss it?
You didn’t miss anything. It has been difficult to try to line up speakers.

Also, what’s the status of the 10/TBA members only frag swap?
We are not having a frag swap this month since we just had the open swap.

We are definitely planning an end-of-year event likely in early December. Still working on important details but it will likely include a potluck, speaker, and mini-swap.

There was some discussion of maybe a DIY event before that, details not finalized yet.
Remaining events updated. What are your suggestions for events between now and Dec 22? We could schedule the holiday potluck for Dec 10/Sat if everyone is generally ok with that. We do need someone to host it.
