Here are a few more details on our upcoming meeting in San Antonio.

Sunday is the Tony Party, and the broadcast starts at 7 p.m.  There will be prizes and ballots, but in true “the how must go on” fashion, we haven’t nailed down an affordable location yet.  STAY TUNED.  I’ll send an update to the list serve and if you have a question, call my cell at 214-878-5598.
