The Shop at Bedrock is still closed but we are making plans to open in March if government covid restriction will allow. The Large saw at Morninville is available to members that have been vaccinated. Any government rules relating to Covid 19 still must be followed.
Next club meeting will be on Janurary 20, 2022. The threat of covid variant has lead us to believe it would not be in the clubs best interests to hold a live meeting at this time. We are looking to have a live meeting in March if possible.
Everyone will be sent out an invitation to a Zoom meeting instead of a live meeting. Anyone that is not a member and would like to attend the meeting can e-mail me and I will have them added to the Zoom invitation (email@example.com). Thanks for your understanding.
