NOW  --- don’t miss February 24th’s. 
The theme of February’s meeting is rope magic.  Willis White will start us off by teaching some finest rope magic this side of India.  Then after the break, it will be time for “open mike.”  Everyone is encouraged to perform his or her very best rope magic.  If don’t do rope magic, then do whatever you do.  But please, try to come up with something.  Let’s try to get 100% participation. 
I hope you appreciate how well we resisted the temptation to use those tried old puns about having you on the ropes or keeping you in knots or helping you learn the ropes.  After all, this is a class newsletter and we wouldn’t want to stoop so low.
