MEETINGS

  • Regular meetings occur every 2ND SATURDAY of the month at 9am
  • Theory meetings occur every 4TH WEDNESDAY of the month at 6pm

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER: Instead of meeting in-person, I am hosting events using Zoom. This is free and easy to use—just RSVP as usual and then follow the invite link in the meeting descriptions on Meetup.com. In the meantime, stay healthy, avoid catastrophic thinking, keep in mind the ‘dichotomy of control‘, support your small businesses however you can, and protect our vulnerable population by following city and state guidelines. — Justin K.

    Thank you.
