Open House Nights 2017
We had another very successful Open House season this year. It was especially great to have our remodeled Quonset with several meetings having a capacity crowd of 110+.

Board Election Results At the May Meeting, we elected 3 new board members: Jason Doyle, Scott Berg, and Russell Blankenburg.

Quonset Hut Remodel Project
We are happy to announce that the project is done! After so many years of some embarrassment, we can now be very proud of our updated meeting hall which included work on the first floor of the A Dome. Our thanks to the many members who participated, but especially Tamas Kriska, Agnes Kessler, and Jeff Kraehnke. See details here.
