New Regalia Items

Check out our Regalia Page for new regalia items! We have just added two jigsaw puzzles to our regalia offerings. These are the same puzzles featured in our annual Puzzle Night competitions! They feature the lineups from our 2013 and 2014 TCMG / ARR Conclaves. Quantities are limited, so buy yours before they are all gone!


Our next monthly meeting is the always enjoyable Henkels Picnic!  Join us on June 23 at the Henkels home and bring a picnic dinner.  Desserts are provided by our hosts.  For those returning from GoF West, bring your awards or other items of interest to share.  There will be lots of tire kicking and gawking at Tony’s many “big boy toys”, along with the usual good company.  Don’t miss out, be there!

Many thanks to our guest speaker at the May meeting, Mike Simmons, who gave an excellent talk about the location of our June tour, Mount Wilson Observatory.
