Shauna says: In response to DG letter - We actually do not have a meeting scheduled for the 1 of March. Sorry. Not all of our members can meet that night. Perhaps our next scheduled meeting would work for you? I believe it is set for Thu 15 Mar 2012 at 7pm here in Magrath at home of Devar and Leslie Dahl. We could move it a day or a half-hour earlier or later if your schedule is tight ..
Our club meeting day and time was a much discussed item at our last meeting. It is difficult to try to accommodate all our members schedules - some on town council with Tue meetings, others with Chamber or Church meetings on Tue or Wed and Thu, or with other higher priority commitments. A new family that is thinking of joining that cannot attend on Wed evenings. I suppose it would be best to pick a fixed date and keep it for whomever really wants to come. .. next meeting after that is set for Thu 12 Apr 2012 at 7pm.
