Other Bits...

As you may have noticed, this week's recap is an unusually long post. We wanted to make sure that all of our members can get caught up on what's HAPPENING, not necessarily what's happening on the page. Although it's gotten a little cluttered in recent weeks, rest assured that we're trying to streamline the group's Facebook page as we speak! :)

Because of how busy we expect ourselves to be (the admins and our members alike), we will not have a Recap Friday post next week (7/19/13).

More Bits...

Planning to see a panel but you don't want to be alone? Sign up to see who else is lining up for what!

Keep up the momentum, propel yourself towards the light, and we'll see you next week at the SDCC: BH meet-up! (Pssst! You can still RSVP here!)
