Discussion Night
Proposal for discussion night that we not have the discussion night this month. An alternative proposal was that if you wanted to practice with someone before, that might be a great night to so. No one objects to that, but it was recommended that we socialize at Anvil that night. Everyone agreed.

Gear Night will be a week early this month to the 22nd. Mr. Anvil Bear contest was moved to that night and we agreed to move our night for them. There will be posters. It will be impact play demos. If you want to be a demo top, or bottom talk to Peter.
