Doesn't appear to be anything in the Turning Wheels yet.

Thanks!

It actually IS in Turning Wheels, but you have to look at the Zone events list.

It's on the SDC website as well~

The link to the Chapter's page is broken- you'll have to call/email them I guess...

Comfort Suites is the place to be. We have a large parking lot party Friday night.

Oooo.... Yeah.... I have to respectfully disagree here. It's always been the first Friday in May. Back in 2010 when the 1st fell on a Saturday, the swap meet was the following weekend. I remember this well because a friend, who will remain nameless, drove a long way only to find that he was a week early.

I was hoping to find an electronic registration form but the link on this site doesn't seem to work, or maybe something on my system is turned off. There was NOT any more info in the January TW either, except in "whats happening". Does Mr. Henning or anyone else know if there is another site with electronic registration that can be used? Thanks

Ah ha... The link now works. Thankyou.

Susan - I do appreciate your taking on this thankless task. However, since you went from all meets/activities being in one listing in chronological order, there has been a lot of confusion/problems, even among long time SDCers. I believe that it worked better when all of the listings were in order (not separated out by local or Zone or International) of date, it worked better/easier. Zone and International events could/should have bolder type to stand out from the local events.
