Hi Ester and Tulie,
Thank you for the note and glad to hear that you had a successful first
gathering! If you want to add the website to the list of regional groups on
the wiki , that would be great.
The local/regional group list is looking a bit... sparse. If you don't see
your local/regional group listed, feel free to add them to the list .
