    I 'd like to know when the events committee is going to get together in one way or another to sketch out some plans for the next few months. What events we'd like to attend as a group and what other future events we would like to plan. We can get together a little before the monthly meeting like 5:30 or 6pm to just have a brief little events committee meeting or after the main meeting if time permits.
