Sounds like the Planning meeting was a success.
I would say that the Mooseland is adequate for our needs until proven otherwise. I was one of the late arrivals but do remember there being plenty of space. The more the merrier and if people have to stand to eat/drink (apps) I don’t see a problem. That backroom is pretty big. I would say 40-60 is a more reasonable estimate based on last years numbers. If the post-event gathering becomes bigger than I think we can revisit locations.
Better to have a proven, trusted site then some large hall with an unknown number set to come…makes it less inviting.
Wherever we go… the beer will be just as rewarding. Just my nickel. 😀
