Note to OPS members for our meeting Thursday March 9

The OPS executive met on March 2 and approved a change in time for our business meetings and Study Groups.  For the period from now through May, our business meeting will start at 7:15 and Study Groups at 7:30. This change is intended to improve the timing of both events. We will review this test run in June to determine if it were a benefit to the club and to the Study Groups.
