Food!We're planning to eat at 6:30 PM. If possible, please bring a potluck dish to share. If you can't, that's totally OK too. We always have lots leftover. Disposable plates, cups, and utensils will be provided.
Arts & Sciences!Bring your entries for our annual shire Arts & Sciences Championship. Documentation on a 3x5 card, if possible. Project in progress? Enter it anyway! Voting by populace choice.
Archery!Weather permitting, there will be an archery practice and/or a fun shoot. Some loaner gear is available. There will be no shire championship shoot this year.
Business Meeting!A short business meeting will be held. Keyword is "short," so we can get back to the fun stuff.
General Merriment!In keeping with the super-casual vibe, this is a "drop in when you can" event. Please feel free to wear garb if you would like, but don't let that be a hinderance to coming. We would love to see you, even if work or family schedules prevent you from coming for the whole evening!

Map & Directions
Make your best way to the service road (St. Robert Outer Road) that runs on the north side of I-44 between Exits 161 and 163. Follow this service road until you reach the corner with the large water tower and Gospel Ridge Church, where you will turn north onto Harlan Lane. Then, turn right onto Hardin Lane, which will become gravel after a few feet. Immediately after the electrical substation, you will see a sign for Hargrove Road to the right. Do not take this turnoff unless you like steep hairpin turns! Instead, continue down Hardin Lane until you find the second Hargrove Road sign and turn right. Take the first driveway to the left, marked with the house number (15640) on a shield-shaped sign.
