———————–

A little over a year ago, the DC970 group was revived. The domain name (dc970.org) had expired and the organizer could not be contacted. Regardless of how long the group was offline, it was time to get it started back up.

The domain name was quickly registered, and for the past year, DC970 has been united with the local 2600 group. The past 12 months have been a success, and with the exception of the meeting that landed on DEF CON weekend, meetings had attendance each month. It’s now time to take it to the next level!

This month the two meetings will separate. NoCo2600 will stay at it’s current location in Loveland/Johnstown and DC970 will move up to Fort Collins. Please post a reply if you have a suggestion for a good location to meet up.

For information on the meeting times and locations, check back with http://dc970.org !

Cheers!
