News & Announcements

ANNOUNCEMENT! We are postponing our next two meetings because our host location is closing with the recent orders. We are hoping to host a regular meeting on December 9th after the orders lift.

SAFETY MEASURES! We are now requiring masks at our regular club meetings. This is because our hosts require it, we believe that more will feel comfortable in this environment than don’t, and because this will be a good safety measure for minimal inconvenience. Thank you!

NEW EVENT! Class is in session at the GRCC. Check out our first in a series of new learning opportunities with FM Joshua Posthuma. He will host a 60 minute online Zoom class on December 11th. Check out the sign up page here!
