Craig's Goals for 2022

While still having our National virtual meetings every quarter, being able to come back to physical meetings when we can, starting up to Perth and Brisbane as the CUGC locations in Australia by the middle of this year.

Craig's Favorite CUGC Meeting

Nashville CUGC-  Holidaying with my wife, far from home and spending the day with the Nashville group, with IGEL as the sponsor and go-carting with the local members. Followed by Patrick Coble, Nashville CUGC Leader, giving me the grand tour of his hometown.
