Apologies for the late notice, but tomorrow 5/27 is the last Wednesday of the month, and we're planning on having another planning meeting at Box Jelly @ 6:30 PM. We'll be talking about what we learned from everyone at Unconferenz, talk about what's happening at the upcoming Hack To The Future III, and other strategy-related items.

Code For Hawaii Co-Captains
