If you can come a little early there are light snacks and beverages available in the lounge area right across from the room we meet in. If you don't get there by 6, you'll have to enter through the door on the north end of the building, as the one on the south end locks at 6. I hope you can all make it & I look forward to seeing you then. If you have a trade you'd like to discuss, please bring it in & we'll talk about it.
