  1. Is there a link to POW WOW? What are the times they will be at the locations?

  2. according to the above schedule, it looks like most run 8-11

  3. any chance of a distribution site further west? The area by the Glendale library for example?

  4. are you going to have any locations in Mesa Arizona

  5. Any plans for sites to the southeast Phoenix metro? Queen Creek, Apache Junction, even SE Mesa? I would love to participate, and I know a lot of others who could really use it as well, but the cost of traveling to the current sites would double the cost. :( Wishful thinking.
