BoT In March

Greetings DC4131 Community!

Apologies for the delay in officially informing you of this months activities, as you can imagine we are in full steam of organising Area41 conference items, supporting the expansion of existing events, experiencing record breaking attendance numbers across multiple locations (you guys are awesome!! :D) and re-introducing old event friends in coming months, so always a lot to keep us busy! And we appreciate the support you guys give us over these times.

As a reminder for our community in Chur/Sargans, an exciting new effort is in effect to better entice and accommodate our infosec neighbours in Liechtenstein, meaning the BoT Chur is now meeting across 2 locations, alternating monthly. On EVEN months (i.e. 02/o4/06/08/10/12) the meetup is happening in the brand spanking new Sargans locaiton (Deja Vu Bar) . On ODD months (i.e. 01/03/05/07/09/11) the meetup is happening in the well known and loved location Sunshine Pub.
