Our first meeting of the year is tomorrow, January 7th, at the Salvation Army Corps Community Center in Stillwater. Take note: as of this month we begin meeting at 6:30pm, one hour earlier than our former meeting time.
Since January is an odd-numbered month we will, of course, hold our first exam session of 2014! As always the exams are held at the conclusion of the regular meeting, and walk-ins are more than welcome. Head over to our Exams page for the latest details.
Look forward to seeing everyone there, and best of luck to those preparing to take their license exams!
Mark your calendars! At our November meeting a motion was approved to change the club’s meeting time. Beginning with our January, 2014 meeting (Tuesday January 7th) the club will meet at 6:30pm, which is one hour earlier than the club’s previous meeting time.
