Hope this is finding you all in good Health.
I now I haven't been on the ball with this all summer, but it's time to start posting again.
Kevin Kuta was able to get us back into the Como Dockside for this new season.
We are good for Saturday mornings from January 7th to April 1.
I also have him checking on our Early season planning meeting for Dec 10.
Dec 10 (Saturday morning) lets meet for Breakfast anyway as our kick off to the new year. I will let you know if we can tie down stairs or not.
I miss you all and look forward to seeing you all soon.
If you have any announcements that you want posted please forward them to me and I will get them up.
