Your proverbial hat was just laying around in too many proverbial rings.
Thank you (and your family) for stepping to the plate and leading this committee!


Damn… Already double booked… Arcade auction and DFW Retro Computer Group meeting both on the same day.

Also I’m thinking about sticking around & trying to straighten up a bit after the meeting.

Next month August meeting we will have a prelude of a Maintenance & cleanup starting at noon AUGUST 24th

Reminder that the Meeting is THIS Saturday at Noon.

All are welcome, we are not a group of people who are unwelcoming. You don’t have to know a lot or really anything about machining to become involved with the committee. If you are interested, I encourage you to come.
