If anyone is aware of a location that will handle around 30 people, under those conditions, and isn't too expensive and allows entry fees and prizes, please let us know. ... See MoreSee Less
Found out today that the Hardee's dining area is still closed and there isn't a set date yet for re-opening. For now, I have reserved Conference Room 1 at the Joplin Public Library from 1-4:45-ish on April 25th, May 2nd and May 9th. There should be enough room to handle our normal club meetings and masks are currently required if you want to attend.Unfortunately, they limit the number of times in a calendar year a group can reserve rooms and on May 16th they do not have available space. So, in a couple of weeks I will check with Hardee's again and we may have to come up with a different location after. But we have a scheduled location for the next three weeks. ... See MoreSee Less
