We host the meeting virtually, so join us from home! Meetings will start at 7:15am every Friday.   
Scenic Round Trip Silverton Train
8:00am / Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Embark on an Incredible Journey Through the San Juan Mountains!   For a truly unforgettable step back in time, enjoy a leisurely trip to yesteryear riding 3 1/2 hours each way on this steam train plus spend 2 hours in the historic mining town of Silverton to enjoy the sights, shopping, food, and libations that Silverton offers. We’ve been in continuous operation running train excursions on this 45-mile spur of the Denver & Rio Grande rail line since 1882. Much of the scenery remains unchanged since then. There’s no cell service or Wi-Fi through much of the terrain so you’ll be unplugged from the modern world. Soak in the views, listen as the steam whistle echoes through the canyon, hear the vintage locomotive work to pull the train up the grades. If you long to unwind and enjoy Colorado nature at its finest, this is the trip for you.

Marvel Years & Maddy O'Neal, OMËGÅ
9:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Marvel Years Bio  Cory Wythe, the producer and guitarist better known as Marvel Years, has found a welcome place for himself within the increasingly popular glitch-hop / electro-soul dance music scene. In just a short period of time, his progression has become outright impossible to ignore. Much more than your average DJ/producer, Marvel Years incorporates electric guitar in his live performances. His approach to blending electronic beats and shredding soulful guitar on his original tracks and remixes creates a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combing glitch, retro-funk, classic rock, soul, jazz and hip-hop. "Classic rock has been a huge influence on me," Wythe explains. "I love breathing new life into those older songs. I think that's a good medium for bringing new listeners into my music because they can relate to that stuff. I improvise (on live guitar) over a lot of my stuff."   Maddy O'Neal  With a sound that is ever-changing and coined 'signature,' Maddy O'Neal glows amongst her fellow artists across the globe and stands out of the pack as truly remarkable. And that is just where she sets her aim -- for being ordinary is not in her DNA. Growing up with two wildly creative parents set the tone for Maddy's life path, and soon her expression was formed by way of soulful melodic overtones, driven basslines, and glitched out hip hop grooves. "When you hear Maddy O'Neal, you know it's Maddy O'Neal" and the more you get to know her, the more you realize this is something different.   Maddy O'Neal has played Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Summer Camp, Summer Meltdown, Red Rocks (x2) and many more. Her touring resume is long and accomplished by supporting such artists as Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, The Floozies, Cherub, SunSquabi, Manic Focus, Russ Liquid and so on.   OMËGÅ  Omega an emerging DJ in Durango, CO. She is life long believer in the power of dance music as a force to connect us with our essential nature and realize the oneness of all things. Unity: a way to bring people together through music, body movement and dance. Omega is most inspired and influenced by wide ranging genres of House, Tech House & Techno blended with world music to bring true commune with primal rhythm to the the audience. Her intention as a DJ is tell a story with music during each set that takes the listeners on a journey that can help them reset, release, and reconnect and feel at one with themselves each other and the universe.
