Once again, you all have proved how awesome you were with your attendance at Ignite Cheyenne 2. Even though it was freezing out, we had almost 70 people attend the event. We had great talks and great fun. For those who got tickets and were unable to attend – we missed you, and hope that you are able to attend the next one (We are shooting for the Week of May 16, and will probably be Tuesday May 17 or Thursday May 19).

Alan, our awesome sponsor at Wyoming Community Media is not quite done editing the videos yet. Once he’s finished, we will put them up on our youtube page and let you know.
Amazing Community Support!
Also, for those of you who have been around Ignite Cheyenne for a while, you know we picked a charity this time around, LightsOn! Cheyenne. We were able to raise $183 for LightsOn! Cheyenne. Here’s what Glen had to say about you all after the event:
