More explanation:  August 18 had been a regularly scheduled Pi Clubhouse Saturday, but our usual venue is unavailable then. We wanted to reschedule this CHS in Virginia somewhere. Failing to do that, we've instead decided to co-sponsor the OPCUG/PATACS meeting that day.  Join in the fun and heckle Gabe while he talks Routers!
