    I thought it was a great event for new members like me to get a feel for what the group is all about, as well as meeting other members and getting the chance to talk to the different organizations at the festival!

    Great Event! There were very interesting people and vendors at this meetup. Excellent speakers too. I especially enjoyed listening to John Perkins, author of Concessions of an Economic Hit Man. The CarbonFreeDC booth was impressive too! There was a guy there with a Prius that can do 100mpg! Also people with an Electric Car assoc right here in Wash DC! Thank you Rhys for organizing such a terrific event!
