    You guys should seriously think about doing these things on a weekend. Saturdays are great.

    Work nights are bad as we don't want to show up for work the next day exhausted. Even a Friday would be better than a Tuesday.

      Thanks for the feedback Jimmy - we'll definitely explore for future. The challenge is always finding a venue that will be willing and open on weekends :)

      You can always pair up with someone, and contribute what you can. The best way to learn is by doing! :)
