We will be having a Dinner Night October 9th (Friday) starting about 6:00-6:30pm. Location will be at C&J BBQ in Bryan, which is at 1010 South Texas Ave. This is a social gathering/club night out and not a meeting. We will not be in the meeting room, however we are supposed to have some tables reserved for us in the main dining area. Aggies are NOT playing this week so should be no abnormal crowds. See the Events Calendar for a map.
