President's Letter for June 2020
David McBee

David McBee     
I hope you are all well. Miss the laughter and smiling faces even more.

Well, it just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Between lockdowns and curfews, I don't know when we can get together again in person. Maybe there is a virtual way to get in one big chat session together and raise a toast or two. Keep thinking on it.

We will be having a virtual Board meeting on June 8th. It also looks like we might be making progress on getting some of our main sponsor money. We shall see how this goes. This is a challenging time for all. So many Games are just throwing in the towel this year. It is sad.

But we must look to the future and see what we can make happen in the coming year. Let’s grab a bagpiper and stroll forth into the unknown. At least we’ll sound cool.

SLAINTE, DAVID




Events

Due to the COVID-19 situation, no Gatherings are planned for the near future.


Support our Vendors

In support of our vendors in these difficult times, we recommend that you continue to shop with them online if you can since they cannot attend any events for who knows how long.
