There is a non-theme contest every month, whether or not a theme contest is planned. So bring whatever you’ve got and let’s fill up those tables!
If you would like to present a demo, or if you have a demo subject you would like to see presented, talk to one of the officers at the meeting. Odds are, many of the rest of us would be interested, also!
Our web site needs content! Send your photos and other items of interest to John Shimek: firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the site at www.famecities.com . Our website will be undergoing a face-lift and revamp later this month. Stay tuned for more info soon.
