If you missed the event on Saturday, you missed something special. Technical communicators from all over the area gathered at the Bloomery Plantation Distillery in Charles Town, WV for history, hooch, and hospitality.
The event began under the big tent at the Bloomery, where our host Rob Losey treated us to an assortment of delicious cordials including Cremma Lemma, Ginger Shine, and (my personal favorite) Chocolate Raspberry. Rob told stories and filled us in on the history of the plantation and some of the details of the manufacturing process as well as the regulations and restrictions.
After the tasting, we took a tour of the grounds, and then stayed for the open mic entertainment. Some of us even participated.
Many thanks to everyone for a great event. See all of our photos on Flickr.
