2023 Events and Projects
Time to start planning for 2023! Some things we might think do if you are interested:
Brewing collaborations -- 2022 was a great year - Maybe more this year?
Five by five walking tour -- it was a lot of fun, and we could do it again. We could change it up a bit if we wanted to as well. Anyone interested?
Club competition -- these are a lot of work, but if there's interest, we could do it again
Bus trip -- haven't done one of these for a while, but they can be a lot of fun
We are looking for destination ideas and designated drivers.
Speak up if you have ideas or comments. Now is the time to get started on these things.
