General Meeting of RCWA - 8 April 2013

Our next general meeting will be held on Monday April 8th, 2013 at 910 Wood Ave at 7 pm.  This will be in the fellowship hall at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Rapid City, SD.

We will be planning our annual woodworking show at this meeting – the show is planned for May 11th at Knecht’s Home Center.  After the planning session, we will have Show and Tell of current projects.

Please plan to attend! 
Update:  Tonight's RCWA Meeting is being POSTPONED to Saturday morning April 13 at 9 am
Due to the possibility of nasty weather this evening, we are postponing the General Meeting that we had planned for this evening. We will do the planning for the Woodworking Show during the first hour of our Toy Workshop on Saturday April 13, 2013 at 9 am.   Sorry for the inconvenience.
PS: Here's the headlines from the ACCU Weather website:

Blizzard Aims for Denver, Rapid City, Casper and Scottsbluff. A wild storm will bring plunging temperatures and heavy snow from Colorado to Minnesota during the middle of the week. Areas from Denver to Rapid City, S.D., Casper, Wyo., and Scottsbluff, Neb., will have blizzard conditions in store spanning Monday night and Tuesday.

Several hours of whiteout conditions, combined with temperatures plunging into the teens and wind gusts between 40 and 50 mph will make for dangerous travel conditions.
