(posted May 27th, 2019)

At a board meeting on April 22nd, we agreed on cutting back our meeting schedule. These changes will be effective immediately:

• TWO meetings per month! First week program, second week critique or competition (July has both; see Upcoming Events).
• Competition every OTHER month.
• Starting in July, we will meet on THURSDAYS, by popular vote.
• For now, we'll meet at the Pax River Naval Air Museum. With the change to Thursdays, we'll again attempt to schedule the Fairgrounds - keep in touch for the latest info.
