The club's opening meeting and party takes place tomorrow, Monday, March 3, starting at 6:00. Come and eat and drink and chat and look out the window at slush and ice and snow and winter.

Website Note II: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so that said clicker can read the news pages for the whole year (2006). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take clickers to the previous issue of this year's newspage. (Skywriter is for Initiates.)
