Jim Rooney

USPA's 2016 Annual Meeting is on Tuesday, December 13, held with AGU's Fall gathering in San Francisco. Cold environment enthusiasts get-together at the ThirstyBear Brewing Company from 7:30-10:30 P.M. A short business meeting will be followed by a delectable organic microbrew/Spanish tapas reception on the second floor of 661 Howard St, just a half-block east of the Moscone Center.

The after-meeting social is arranged to sync with the Cryosphere Focus Group's closing at 8:00 PM. Then it's a short five-minute walk for CFG attendees to the microbrewey, less than 2 blocks away.

Come hungry and be well fed!
