The purpose of this is to allow people to come together to talk about what they would like to do for WT and to see if any group projects coalesce. This is an opportunity to see if there are any common interests that might benefit from a group project.

We’ve done this the past few years and among other things the Prestissimo project emerged from it.   What will this year bring?
