Big Night for Fire on the Bluff

I know that this is a little off-topic, but given the role that Barry Madore has played in the local (and international) Drupal Community and all the great pizza he made for us at Drupal Camp the last two years, I'd like to make sure that everyone is aware of a great opportunity to support Barry on his latest venture, Fire on the Bluff.

Here is a short snippet from his blog post: http://www.fireonthebluff.com/article/cookstp

Drupal 8 Play Date (Nov. 7th)

Start: 
2015-11-07 10:00 - 16:00 America/Chicago
Event type: 
User group meeting

Our first Drupal 8 Play Date went so well, we've scheduled another (and are considering even more, if there is sufficient interest).

November 7th will mark the one-month anniversary of the first official Release Candidate for Drupal 8.

It's time to start experimenting with Drupal 8, porting modules, and finding bugs that need to be fixed before the official release.

This will be a great opportunity for beginners and advanced coders alike to get an introduction to Drupal 8 and start setting up a site of their own.
