The event begins with short discourse by the speaker on the scheduled topic, followed by a short break to replenish pints and bites. We then move to a round of Q&A, including a few short remarks and raffles for door prizes provided by the Ginger Man and other sponsors.
Afterward, many stay to further discuss the night’s topic.
