Committee Reports


Hbarcomm was a huge success over cpw! One prefrosh even called us crazy. Propose do the same next year. Dumped multiple boxes of niagracomm on prefrosh and it was great. Proposal that Hbarcomm hold events during rex? Seldoncomm is poked to make this happen.


Picniccomm is having picniccomm Sunday.
