We are planning another evening social event in the mountains south of town. The purpose of this event is to unwind after a work week, meet up with some good people, and to enjoy the nicer weather.
I have to work that day and and the next morning and plan to head that way around 5:30 to 6:00. There is no set meeting time, so arrive and leave whenever you'd like. This will be an above ground event with no open mine shafts. There will be no children or pet restrictions, but please keep a close eye on both. This is not a cookout event, but we will have a fire going and a table for snacks. Please, bring your own chairs and a food or snack item to add to the table.
