One week to go
Hoping this makes it to the “News” part of our website, still learning this whole WordPress thing. And being darn slow about it. One week from today we’ll be gathering at Camp 18 for the event. We’ve had excellent response from quite a few pending attendees and that’s a welcome development. Our projects are mostlyContinue reading “One week to go”
With just about three weeks to go our preparations are moving forward full speed. All’s well so far, including the small details like finishing the model contest paperwork. It’s going to be fun!
March 6 update
We’re moving ahead with plans for the event as well as refining some Covid-related aspects our attendees may want to know about.

Although the Covid-related mask requirement willContinue reading “March 6 update”
