President’s Notes:  The Friday night group has met in a neighborhood pool house since the Game Parlor closed.  They have now changed the rules and we can only get the space two nights per month.  Consequently the other nights we will be at Huzzah Hobbies.  Please keep this email close or look on the website to see where we are each night.
