Wow, how fast a winter can go...It's already time to get thinking about next season.
The annual pre-season meeting for the Red Light group was held on Saturday (3/25) With good attendance, we covered the items on the agenda and watched a few crash videos. Minutes for the meeting are part of this article. For those not present there will be little change from last year. We are looking to expand on our "durable goods" supply and should know better about that in a few weeks. RLR is investigating the manufacture of 12 set of flags and will be purchasing some Sterile wash and a "hats off" device for events.
Many thanks to all attending. I'll adjust next years start time to accomidate this years schedules.... ;-)
