4) SPRING is coming early (doesn't that sound fabulous right now?) - well, the Regional spring meeting will happen earlier than previously scheduled  - since the 3rd Saturday in April lands on Easter weekend and is only 2 weeks from the SAQA conference.  Finalizing a date for our Spring meeting to be announced at the Winter meeting.
