120916: We’re At The Elks this Friday

BOT:

Aloha,

Sorry for the late posting. Been very busy printing up Christmas Flight Manuals for this Friday and Saturday’s events.

We’ll be meeting at the Elks this Friday (today actually), in the Dinning Room, they’re offering a special Christmas Dinner for $20. Hopefully, you should have received notice via Email about this early this week. Usual run time 7p-10p. But you may want to show up just a little early and kapu a space near the band. Christmas Flight Manuals will be provided, but bring yours just incase.

Saturday we’ll be performing at the Fairfax Christmas Fair, 12p-2p, in the Pavilion (142 Bolinas Rd, Fairfax, CA 94930). I’ll be providing flight manuals also.

We had enough interest, so we’ll be holding Saturday Kanikapila at the UFOHQ, 2p-4p, after the Fairfax event.

Btw, please take note of Tucker’s Event below.
