We kicked things off at 7am with the pledge from Alex and words of inspiration from Paul, standing in for Debye.
Alex kicked things off with a report on Cowabunga. “Everyone seemed to have a good time”, which was the consensus. His only complaint was the light tower fiasco with the city. The tower did not work leaving us literally in the dark for half of the festival area.
Ward dropped in to leave the sponsor prize on his way out of town. Therefore, no City report this week
