We are excited to our third AZFRAG meeting.


I'd like to put an emphasis on recruiting new membership for this meeting. I see there's an opportunity to bring in new people that may not be aware of the club and help grow membership. As such, I'm going to try and make this attractive as possible to new members.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
First - we're going to do is we're going to offer one free frag to any new member that has signed up from June 1st to July 15th, and attend this meeting. Most if not all the frags are coming out of VCA office tank. I have lots of accidental frags and I need to trim back a few pieces to keep the piece in the tank.

If anyone out there is good at that sort of thing (pruning, fragging and mounting), I could definitely use the help. Or, if you have any small frags you may want to donate , we may need as few extra.

Second – I am in the process of reaching out to some of my industry friends to see if we can get any good donations for the raffle. I don't have any commitments yet - however, once I have commitments I will post them here.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Third – I will be promoting this meeting on social media. If you see only of the posts, and you are so inclined, please feel free to share. First

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

as usual we're going to supply some sort of light refreshments. In the past we've done pizza and mini Sub sandwiches. If anybody has any suggestions, please let me know in the comments below. We're open to almost anything.

You can also call me if you have ideas or suggestions as well – We are (nearly) always at the office so feel free to call anytime: 623-233-6908

planning on attending after meeting the last few meetings due to work. See you there. Will be bringing a few frags. For now I will have some leather frags.
Looking forward to having you.

Raffle prizes are already starting to pile up. I'll post about them either over the weekend or early next week, once i have few more vendors nailed down.

Base don what I'm seeing so far, the raffle should be a good one.
