Other org items:


The Club will hopefully have a competition event this year, and it looks like Nov is the time period.  Email Laura if you can participate in the committee to organize.    Also there will be another look into the meeting location, since the cost of the current locations is deemed a bit high.   Let Laura know if you can also participate in this committee. 

The hat was passed at the BBQ to help pay for the event, so that was a good step forward.

Tri-Valley is having a show in Sept.  More details are coming.

Plenty of shirts are still available, so let Ross know of your purchase plans so he does not have to carry the stuff to every meeting.

Club Patches have arrived.   Each club member will receive one. 


Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated.   TGannon
