Meetings Start at 6 PM

October 13th, 2016

The club decided to extend the time that we would meet “early” to all meetings from October to March.  This gives members from further away more daylight to drive in, at least on the way to the meeting.  So starting this Tuesday, October 18th, we will start the meeting at 6 PM until after the rock show in March.
