ALERT: Tonight's SF Chapter Event Postponed

Due to the logistics and road closures for tomorrow's Golden State Warriors Victory Parade (closures start at 6pm tonight) we are forced to postpone tonights SF chapter event.

After long discussions with the venue and Oakland PD, we regretfully arrived on this conclusion as the safest option. The venue is in downtown Oakland in the middle of the parade route.

Registered attendees will receive an email to this effect, automatic admission to the new date, and something extra. We will issue full refunds to anyone who can not make the new date.

That date will be devised ASAP, as we are able to line up speaker schedules and venue availability. More to come, and we apologize for the curveball. We are bummed to say the least.

In an ironic twist for the sake of comic relief: The Golden State Warriors have been a double edged sword for SF Chapter events: as a great past speaker, and now source of postponement.

But we'll roll with it. Here is more from our past events and stay tuned for more. Go Warriors.
