Ice Skating DEVO

Hey BG,

I just wanted to remind everyone that our devo will be tomorrow night, and that it is mandatory. We will be meeting in the lobby at 7:30 PM and heading over to the Culver City Ice Arena to ice skate for a couple hours. If you signed up at the meeting to drive, please make sure you have your keys and license with you when you come down. The ice skating will be no cost to you.

While the first part of the night – the ice skating – is mandatory, Roscoe’s is not. We don’t have the funds to pay for everyone’s food, so we’re making this optional. But I think a group of us are still going to go there after the skating, and of course everyone is welcome – and encouraged – to attend. If you plan to go to roscoe’s, please bring some money to cover the cost of your food.

Thanks BG and I’ll see you tomorrow night at 7:30 sharp for our awesome devo! Get ready to skate!

Helen
