In lieu of our December meeting, we are going to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary as a group by having a holiday party. Yes, it’s become an annual tradition by now…and a darn fine one at that.

We are going to meet at Buffalo Billiards on 6th Street (map) on Tuesday, December 11th from 6 to 9 PM. We currently don't have any official party sponsorship this year, so we are going to just meet up and grab some pool tables and hang out downtown at Buffalo. Should be fun!
