February 15th at 6:30
We will not have a regular meeting this coming Monday, February 15. The GBA Spring Conference, Saturday February 20, should serve you well instead! Only $15 (GBA members, $20 non-members) for everything delivered virtually and you have a few weeks to watch (https://gba17.wildapricot.org/event-2710133). Instead of a formal speaker, we will start our ZOOM session at 6:30PM to answer beginners' questions (Q&A) and briefly review what people should be doing now through to the next meeting. At 7:30PM there will be a club board meeting. While general club members (only paid OCBC members) are welcome to listen in from 7:30PM forward, the topics will concern future planning for the club.
Due to COVID-19 this meeting will be hosted online to assist in social distancing. The link for the ZOOM meeting will be sent through email to paid members. Anyone who would like to pay dues may fill out the membership form.
