Out-of-Towners Rejoice! We
have firmed up our June picnic date and voted to move the picnic to a Sunday so

Gossett was calling people to attend the Easter Car Show, he mentioned to me

As long as we're
moving meeting dates around -( I'm not fond of doing
this because everyone has the 3rd Tuesday of the month in their head)- The
month of July brings us a challenge. The MG Conversion Group is hosting their
2008 British Meet National Convention July 13 -16 in Port
Things are always in the state of flux it seems- the time line for completion of my patio project keeps getting moved back because of the rain. It looks as though it won't be done in time for the May meeting as I had hoped. Bonnie & Jack David have volunteered to bail me out & host the May meeting. Tuesday, May 20 (Thankyou!)

Also bring a side dish of your choice, I'm uncertain of the main course as I've just now talked to Bonnie & she was on her way out the door!
