Potluck and 'DRR Annual General Meeting', Saturday Evening

Join us at Norm's house after the 200k until whenever, for a potluck, a beer or a G&T, and the DRR 'AGM'. All DRR members*, or DRR-curious, or just hungry randonneur-friendly potluckers welcome. If you bring your favorite food or beverage you're even more welcome. AGM agenda to be determined, but it's sure to be fun. And short. Probably.

* Are you a DRR member? Have you ever...
  • Ridden any DRR brevet?
  • Ridden any RUSA permanent that passes through the WA: Tri-Cities RUSA region (whatever that is)?
  • Organized, volunteered for or supported any DRR event?
...then yes, you're a DRR member. So there.
