NEbraska-CERT is doing a nighttime event on Wednesday August 21st (our normal night)...I know Jeff has gone to their Breakfast or Lunch meetings as have I. Details are below....
Thoughts on doing our August meeting on the 28th?
For August we are doing a NIGHTTIME CSF. If this goes over well
we might start doing one or two of these a year. This was one of
the most requested items in our 2013 Survey. We are very fortunate
that TD Ameritrade is going to let us use their facilities for it.
Couple of things
#1. TD Ameritrade is a secured facility. If you're not on the
RSVP list we won't be able to get you into the facility. So
we need all people to RSVP for this event. I need to have
the list in Tuesday morning.
#2. This is in the "Big Green" building both in color and eco-impact.
We'll need to park in the North parking lot and go through
the main doors. There'll be a security guard who'll take
down your name get you a visitor badge and escort you to
#3. We're going to be ordering Pizza. A LOT of Pizza. If anybody
has any particular type they like (Pepperoni, Meat, Chicken,
Veggie, etc) please let me know. We'll also be ordering Soda
so please let us know if you have a preference there as well.
Otherwise it will be a mix of cola, diet cola, green stuff, and
#4. If there is a very good pizza place by the office that does deliveries
plese let me know and we'll see if we can get pizza from there.
Otherwise it will be one of the franchises.
Hope to see you there,
