HUFF presents more Free Form Follies with yet another “Loose Cannon” Informal Meeting at Harvey West Friendship Garden 4-18-24 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM Snacks. Bring your own drinks.

HUFF “Loose Cannon” Agenda Suggestions 4-18-24  

      The 4-18-24 HUFF meeting is being held at the edge of the Harvey West survival encampments near Friendship Park.  We usually meet at the Sub Rosa at 703 Pacific Ave. next to the Bike Church 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM.  These “Loose Cannon” meetings  are more informal gatherings without the usual tight agenda constraints typical of those run by Robert (who may not make this meeting).   The following are some of Robert’s suggestions for possible topics, but participants themselves decide leadership and agenda.. There will likely be snacks, though folks may have to bring their own drinks.  Bring snacks to share.

            Those with recording equipment are encouraged to record (with the permission of participants) some of the accounts for later on-line play or reference by HUFFsters unable to get to the meeting.
