Re: [hiking-647] Indoor skydiving in Union City on March 1 at 3:30PM

I'm glad to hear that for the most part meet-ups are as fun as filled
with decent people as they originally seemed. My email was in response
to what I thought was Byron's continued presence in the group. For
those who take the time to organize these events, I am sorry to have
quickly jumped to conclusions based on one email, I know that your
hard work is appreciated by many.

Thank you,

Jenn
