Fall Social and the Three Bears

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006 by bill

Sunday’s fall social at Phil Bokovoy’s was an enjoyable day, despite slightly cooler weather than we’ve become accustomed to, and a lower than anticipated turnout of DSSF members and boardies.  Maybe it was the weather, or the end of daylight savings time, or perhaps a surfeit of Halloween parties.
