Meeting Schedule for 2017

   

MAC normal "business/social" meeting schedule is the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month. Our meeting location is at the house of our president, Steve Rice and please call him if you need directions and we begin our meetings at 7 PM. Meeting lengths vary due to how much "business" we have and our socializing time afterwards. Our public meetings are always on a Saturday, but the times vary due to the phases of the moon. They take place at Hancock County's Riverbend Park at Shelter #5.
