I have been remiss!  We had a retreat in October and here it is November, almost Thanksgiving, and I have yet to post pictures.  🙁  I had good intentions of doing so but as they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions right?!  Then again, don’t make good, don’t make bad everything just is.  Regardless, better late than never.  So here are some pics and be it known that it was a wonderful retreat day, with excellent practice by all!

November 24th we have an extended practice day that runs from 9 to noon.  Please feel free to join us.  And of course another retreat is coming up in December on the 29th.  Look for an emailing to be coming soon.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
