NOTE: CHANGES FOR ALL 2019 MEETING DATES!

 

To offer a quieter environment for our meetings, we are changing ALL 2019 meeting dates to the 3rd Thursday of each month, rather than the 4th Tuesday!! They will be held as before at the Portola Community Center. The CRITSIG meetings for competition months will be held the Wednesday before. We are also changing competition months to Feb, Apr, and Jun, with speaker meetings in Jan, Mar, and May.
