FEARLESS SPEED MEETING
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12
This is the Fearless version of Speed Dating
A fun way to meet new folks. All age groups welcome, but you must be over 21 to participate.
No charge for the first event.
How it works: Event participants are divided into two groups: guys and gals. Each participant spends 3 minutes meeting and chatting with another participant. We will have â€˜assist questionsâ€™ available for those who donâ€™t particularly have the gift of gab. At the end of 3 minutes everyone rotates to a new partner. The process continues until all the gals have met all the guys. At the end of the event you let us know if there are any participants with whom you wish to share your contact info (email address) and we will forward that info on your behalf. Then it is up to you!
Local residents as well as out-of-towners. We will be advertising this event far and wide.
Fearless Brewing Company 326 South Broadway, Estacada, Oregon 503-630-BEER www.fearless1.com
