Hello Folks,

In what has become almost a tradition, the last meeting in January was used to prep the mailings for Spring Fling. I wanted to say thanks again to everyone who helped out. They are in the mail and folks should start getting them soon. I have also posted both the invitation and registration below in the Spring Fling section.

I also wanted to remind folks that it is the time of the year to pay your dues. Please be kind to our new membership chair and send in your checks as soon as you can.

In addition to the calendar page I will be updating the website in several areas over the next few weeks so please let me know if I have broken something.

See you at the forge,
