November, 2018 [The Meeting was held as normal, but the usual photographer, Jeff Nelson, was not at the meeting (for some odd reason he thinks spending the weekend with his wife celebrating their anniversary was more important). No one remembered to take any photos, but Daniel Karnes sent in some pictures] DOWNLOADABLE PHOTO PDF FILE

October, 2018  [The Meeting was cancelled because the library was closed due to Hurricane Michael, but then rescheduled to a later date. Unfortunately, no one was able to take any pictures of the few attending members did bring. In other words, nothing went as planned, but a meeting was held. Maybe, because there's no photographic proof of it.ocurring.]
