Here's an update on proposal submissions. Many of you have sent me something, and that's great. However, most of them have been things that we can't even think about doing without breaking the rules in the handbook or the fire code.

     So, how about this for a change of plans: I've got it covered for next month. We'll go with my plan for October, and if you like it, we'll do a variation of that in future months. If you don't, we'll go back to Plan A.

     I'm pretty sure the October date will be October 18. That's a Monday (weird, huh?), but that'll be OK just this once. We'll start at 8:15 ... and you will never forgive yourself if you're late.

     If you have any questions, please let Mr. Rice know. Thanks for checking it out!
