Dear Troy Shambhala,

SCHEDULE CHANGE !!! SCHEDULE CHANGE !!! SCHEDULE CHANGE !!!
We are shifting our regular sitting schedule to THURSDAYS, beginning November 30 (exclamation point, so no Nov. 28th sitting). Until then, we’ll meet on our usual Tuesdays. But there’s no sitting on Tuesday, November 21 (double exclamation point). We can handle this chaos.
