Is there a Happy Hour prize like there have been in previous years?
Ky Andersson
57:03
It may help to have a hybrid option (A) to get more folks from a wider area, and (B) because it may be hard to predict changes in the pandemic 2 months from now, unless this is decided closer to the date. (Also beautiful story about the birthday party!) šŸ™‚
Peter f. New Haven, Ct
