Temperatures are forecast to climb well above normal this
weekend. At this time, it appears that the warmest day will be
Saturday on the coast and on Sunday over the interior. Highs on
Saturday are forecast to climb into the 80s on the coast, away
from the ocean. Expect temperatures to soar into the mid 80s to
mid 90s across much of the interior on Sunday.

If you are planning on heading to area rivers and lakes this
weekend to beat the heat, please keep in mind that the water is
still too cold for swimming. Wear an approved life jacket.
Drownings tend to occur during hot spells in Western Washington.

Proposed New Meeting Hall

There are times, frequently as of late, that we barely have enough room to seat all the attending members at our present meeting place. AF7VT-Ric has done some research and found a possible New place to meet @ the Shelton Christian School.

So, Ric, Ed, and Stan met there today for a look-around. I think we all liked what we saw. Maybe y’all will too. Click HERE (or on the picture above) to go to the pictures and let us know, either in a comment or via e-mail, your thoughts.

Cost would be the same as we’re paying now; but no coffee provided. Ample parking. Plenty of room for “projects.” Plenty of seating. We can set up tables. Projector available for presentations. Guarantee’d 2nd Saturday of the month.

This will be brought up at a future meeting and requires a majority vote (For!) to pass.
