From the President:
Welcome to Spring in Wisconsin! Windy and coldish!!
Just a few quick things:
The field is drying out nicely but please try to keep of the grass with your cars for a few more weeks.
We have enough ruts to fix already and we don’t need anymore!
If you have paid your 2019 dues - THANK YOU! If not please jump on the website and you can do it all online! Dues are due!!
We still need grass cutters! Please let me or Tom Blackstone know if you can help cut the grass - Long grass sucks to fly off of!!
The field has been rolled and is nice and flat.
Please make sure you add the Spring Cleanup to your calendar, we will be having it on Saturday April 20th, starting at 9am with a short meeting then cleanup and we will have a lunch!
