This year’s Eastern Shore Skate, led by Mo, was held on Saturday, October 18.  It turned out to be a terrific event, with perfect weather and 17 WAR members participating.   As is our custom, the Eastern Shore Skate was the last major WAR event of the season, although of course we will continue to have our regularly scheduled skates throughout the Fall and Winter seasons, weather permitting.

The next major WAR event will be our Annual Meeting/Potluck Dinner/Party, which will be held at 7:00 PM on Saturday, November 15, at Jon Deason’s house in Arlington, just a four-block walk from the Rosslyn metro Station.  Everyone is invited.  Further details about the meeting will be posted later.  In the meantime, please mark your calendar!
