2018 club dues are upon us again, so please bring $30/individual or $40/household. Your dues go to fund cool things like our fancy name badges, our world-class festival bar, and meeting beers. Ultimately it all goes back to you!

Word on the street is that Lyne has a special prize we’re going to raffle off to everyone that RSVPs (and shows) to the meeting–don’t wait to sign up!

Don’t forget that you’re on the hook to bring your fancy new name badges! Also, don’t forget your tables and chairs!
