FALL CONVENTION Heads Up....

This year, the Fall Convention in Wildwood, NJ will be much later (about 3 weeks later) than usual.
Convention weekend is October 24-26, which is well into the hibernation period for Wildwood.
As such, many of the usual hotels and restaurants will not be available.
Therefore, everyone planning to attend the Fall convention is encouraged to make hotel reservations as early as possible.

Also,
We will be using a Jumbo-Tron again at the Fall Convention, and selling ads to air on the Jumbo-tron just like we did last year.
Get your ads ready now
There will be no webcast this Fall.
