Hey Eric, 
Sorry I just read your email about the July 17th meetup. I actually just had a meeting with Tenney today about the upcoming event. Unfortunately Mike and I are leaving for our summer vacation on July 16th so I will miss the 17th events so I won't be able to go. There are couple of very interesting events rolling out in Sep and Nov. I will keep you posted.
