      OK, next year let's put it to the test: my 6-person team (and the others) versus the CLHG mega-committee! (I don't expect it would be allowed, though.)

    What a great night, thanks to Helen Arney, Styven Colgan and Alex for setting the questions and coping so well with the failures of technology. Especially big thanks to Alex for all his hard work fundraising and planning the event. See you all again next year.

      Thanks again to everyone that attended and sorry for the dreadful technology issues. You can imagine how frustrating it was. Next year (our 5th) it will be earlier, bigger and better ... I promise!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
