    Oops. Did not see the fee. I am going to back out. Would have been a great refresher though and fun. Could stop by and help if you need any ( I doubt you do ).

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.
