ALRA Western Gathering Schedule of Events - 2011

Post by Doc Mark » Sun Sep 11, 2011 10:21 am

Greetings, All,

It won't be long, now, and many of us will once again gathering at Fort BuenaVentura, Utah, for our 6th ALRA Western Gathering! I hope all of you can make plans to join us, as this year's event is shaping up to be a fine one, with lots of tap for attendees to enjoy! Here is our schedule of events, which covers most all of what's been planned. Some last minute changes might shift things around, but I'm thinking everything should work very well as we have scheduled it. My sincere thanks to everyone who stepped up to make our 2011 Western even better than it's already been!! Hope to see you there, and God Bless!

Every Good Wish,
