September Meeting: Open Topics and Swap Meet

Date: September 4, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Location: Dymon Storage Boardroom, 323 Coventry Rd

We do not have a specific topic this evening, so it is a free forum night. If you have questions, bring them and perhaps the collective experience of the group will be able to answer them.

In addition, this will be a hardware swap meet. If you have some unused hardware lying about, you can bring it along and see if anyone is interested in taking it away to a new home.

Given the new location and short notice, we will not be having the pre-meeting help session, however that does not mean we will not entertain such questions as part of the general meeting.

We will also entertain ideas for future meetings and volunteer speakers.
