What is Caturday?

Some of the core Caturday Crew and a few other awesome peeps in a rare shot together after the 8 bit Reloaded party back in 2014. Although it isn’t entirely obvious what Caturday is exactly – from the perspective of an outsider, it becomes fairly apparent, the moment you’re given the opportunity to join in and be part of the fun, that it is a community.
