Come join us at the 1st general meeting for the 2017/2018 season. We have many things to discuss and plan. Hopefully the season and weather will start leaning more toward our favor for many reasons. First matter of discussion will be how can BAAM help our neighbors to the North during the crisis of the Wine County Fires?
While taking a break over the summer (June-Aug) the BAAM Labs have been busy keeping things rolling with basic ID workshops, cultivation, education and much more, thanks to several key individuals. We are looking forward to an exciting and eventful year for the whole BAAM'ily!

Come one, come all to the the October almost Halloween and Day of the Dead edition of BAAM's monthly meeting.

Monday, Oct. 24th
My place: 2308 Stuart st, 94705
    A big yellow house
Potluck starts at 7pm
General meeting starts at 8pm

Bonus for bringing any holiday or seasonal theme related foods and crafts or inspirational elements.

I was just looking over recent meeting minutes, and all the progress being made, nice.  We will certainly continue several
of those conversations.

I want to put some itemson the agenda:

1) I believe this will be the last time Max and Claire will be joining us for a while, so I want to give a fond farewell to the two of them, if they are able to come?  

Claire and Max, You joined up with us, and infused all kinds of knowledge, inspiration, ideas, time and physical labor into our group at a time when that made a huge difference, at a time when we were growing past a small group trying to put something together. We now have that something, and so... 

mulch gratitude, we will miss having you two around. Sniff.

2) The MSSF fungi fair is on Dec 4th and now is the perfect time to plan ahead. We have done better every year, and I think we could kind of knock it out of the park this year if we want to, maybe even find funding or launch a Kickstarter in the new year, or...  ?

3) BAAM is presenting for the Merrit Fungi Class this Friday.

And, it turns out, I will be on a panel of local fungi heavyweights, so, I could use some support for that, I need help updating our presentation to include our recent work, and I also want somebody willing to go and present with me, since my depth of knowledge on specifics is not nearly as good as the other panelists (some are PhDs), nor am I as versed as some of you as well. Who's in?

4) FWF BBQ planning of any kind.
We are looking very forward to this wonderkind child of Ken's Labor, thanks Ken!

What else Myco-amigos?
