  • T-Shirts - T-shirt orders were taken. Shirts will be ordered this week.

  • New Location - The City of Davis has gotten back to us. Our fee waiver request will go to council. We should expect a letter telling us when it will be on the City Council agenda. We'll ask DCN if they can make a "letter of recommendation" for us.

  • Elections - Due to conflicts with school, elections will now be held at Daylight Savings changes, instead of summer and winter solstices. (Passed by consent.) This will begin after the next election (thus shortening the next term). Nominations are being accepted, e-mail Jen Rutherford (secretary).
