Spring 2020 Division Meet

Our Spring 2020 Division meet was held SATURDAY March 14, 2020 at Northgate Baptist Church - Fellowship Hall.

The attendance was off a bit (understandable due to CoronaVirus concerns), but by all reports it was a successful meeting. We had two great clinics (click links for presentations) and two great layout visits. Check out the great photos from the event.
