Four people attended. All had some familiarity with the topics. Trained in 2FA with Google authenticator, Mailvelope, and Ricochet.

3/24/2017 Annoying Legislators for Freedom

4/25/2017 Holyoke Campaign Workshop

Lousy weather. It poured.

Six attendees. It was a good discussion, and we might get some new pirates out of it.

4/29/2017 PirateCon

About 20-something people came during the course of the day. We had 18 talk proposals. First attempt at video streaming. Had some technical problems with the stream in the morning, but got it straightened out during the day. Have both audio and video recording. Next year: make the first hour "registration and socializing". That way, we won't disrupt the schedule if setup runs over. Had a good brainstorming session at the end.
