2 updates, both are time sensitive.

1.Kevin Thomas (Wirekat) who offered to broker a 2" HDPE group buy, is putting the order in on Friday March 11th. No more order will be taken after noon PDT. If you are interested PM or send me an email, and I will put you in contact with Kevin

2.We have a new C.L.A.P. member who has the ability to create acrylic matrix panels locally. There will be 2 sizes 10x10 and 10x15 to accommodate bullet or square pixel in 100 or 150 strings respectively. There may be some room for customization. If interested in getting these ordered, they can be delivered at C.L.A.P. PM or email me and I will forward Randy's contact information.
 
Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday April 30th!

Friday April 29th - Set Up at Nancy Foley's 12:00pm  - This is always fun, Bill's shop gets its annual cleaning and the conversation is always riveting. That evening at 5:30 is the Pizza Meet & Greet for those in the area or staying in the area.

I plan to come along with someone else in my town who is fairly new to the hobby.


P.S. Is there an "official" way to RSVP, or is this message good enough?
