This time a number of factors are conspiring against us; from the cool (possibly rainy) weather, to the Presidential motorcade and the Mariners game disrupting traffic. It’s hard to believe we won’t be starting this season of Casino on Cardboard until July 1st! It’s forecast to get hot and sunny next week, like a real summer Friday.

Thanks to Steve and Laszlo for volunteering to transport the dance floor on 7/1 and 7/8!

PS, We still need more volunteers to step up to transport the dance floor on July 15th and later.
