We’ll be resuming our usual Sunday evening party at Dragon Con after last year’s skip. It will be in Robert’s suite at the Hyatt.
Because of the way the calendar lined up this year, we will have a Game Night in September for a change. Robert and Jack will host. We have a host lined up for October’s Game Night as well.
