NO DHPT MEETING ON MONDAY Feb. 4th!

Other than Tipping Beers and the Election of Officers... We really do not have any pressing agenda items to deal with this month...  so Pete and I (with encouragement from Spinner and Captain) have made the decision to cancel February's DHPT Meeting normally scheduled for the first Monday of the month.

We will, instead, have a Special DHPT PRE-RACE Meeting on Monday, Feb. 18th at 7:00 p.m. in preparation for the PUGSLEY WORLDS we are hosting on Saturday, Feb. 23rd.

We can take care of signing up our membership to help with that event and then railroading them into any leadership positions available... and other paltry AND sordid organizational business at that time.  Please Send Agenda Items to me.  johnsonk@luther.edu
