September 20th, 1997   The summer months are actually nice and warm here in Seattle. We typically don't get much participation in the afternoon sessions during the summer months. Plan on having lunch with us at Godfathers, and we will start up the afternoon sessions again this fall.
October 18th, 1997   We plan on having a great October meeting. We are having our first be tech session of the year. Bring your toys, and lets spend a couple of hours in the afternoon getting some robots built. We will order out for lunch.
