April Meeting

I would personally like to invite everyone that has ever been to a meeting or wanted to, and even those on here that have never made it to one, to come on out this Thursday evening to the Cape Library and meet other like-minded people as we celebrate our 5th anniversary. Our meeting is at 6:30 pm in the Oscar Hirsch room. Hope to see you there!   Dan

We will have David Patterson presenting on storm chasing techniques and safety issues. This should be a thunderous rain of lightning charged excitement. Sorry, had to do it.

RRPA November Meeting 11/20

Hello Folks! Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (or today if you are reading this on Thursday, November 20th) is our November meeting of the RRPA. 6:30pm at the Cape Library. I know that Larry Braun is planning on talking about the photos he has on display, and hopefully we will have another presenter, because I know y'all don't want to hear my scratchy voice for the whole time. Larry has posted a link below to our Flickr account, so use the tag listed there and upload some of your photos for us to review. I also have a bunch of photos from the Photo Contests to give back to people. Dan
