Shack attack by bill and jack

The Shack is busting at the seems with the treasures Jack and Bill pulled from the home of a silent key. With that said its probably time for all of us to clean out our shacks. If you have an item you want someone to have give it to them now so you can Elmer them in its use. And if you have items no longer used donate them to the club to sell at Hamvention. We are now a non profit entity so see Bill or Jack for a tax exempt form for the item to take off your 2017 taxes.

With all these “treasures” filling the meeting room it is probably safe to assume the March club meeting will be at the museum again.
