Put Saturday, 9/10, 8AM-4PM on your calendar. We will be hosting a district-wide Demo Day and Judge Training.

If you receive a duplicate newsletter this week, it may be because we are making sure that all new folks are receiving the letter even if not on the eList. Please give us a couple of weeks to work out the kinks!
