Cancellations Due to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Unfortunately, all of our public events, including club meetings, are cancelled until further notice. It is with an abundance of caution and consideration for our members to limit our public exposure to the coronavirus.

We will continue to be active on Facebook and as soon as we resume our regular schedule, we'll let you know!

Also, this might be interesting to see if it's clear before sunrise tomorrow.
