Call to Members

We, the NCGS, are considering participating in the Tri-Valley Science Fair on 19 March 2022 in the Pleasanton area. A couple of the usual suspects have already penciled in their willingness to be there. Before we commit to this, it would be good to have a few more possible participants. Please let me know if you pencil, or ink, this into your calendar. Mark Petrofsky,
