These usually take place once each month (July and August excepted) selected in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows.
In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place a people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity. Directions will be sent out each month with the host's address. Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website.
