The July Meeting is not Until July 18!
Ever since we've been meeting at Bullock's BBQ, we have had to handle
July differently. As long as I can remember, Bullock's has closed for
two weeks including July 4th. For several years, we used an alternate
site to meet in July, but as our attendence has grown we no longer fit
there and scheduling turned out to be awkward there as well.
The simplest solution turned out to be meeting on the third Tuesday of
the month in July. Note that this is the time slot for the DFMA
Board Meeting. So, the regular Board meeting has been cancelled with
the understanding that we can have a quick meeting just before the regular
meeting if something important comes up. More in the July Link. (Just read
