As a rule we try to schedule meetings for the first Wednesday of every month (unless it falls on a holiday) However the school may assign us a different day if the first Wednesday conflicts with another event. At any time during the year, if the school is closed for any reason (inclement weather etc.), our meetings are also canceled. Always check the Fairfax County Public Schools website http://www.fcps.edu to check for any closings.
Meetings begin at 8:00 p.m. and are concluded by 10:00 p.m. Contact any of our club officers for more information.
If the meeting is not the 1st Wednesday of the month it is noted below in RED
January 7 (1st Tuesday)
February 11 (2nd Tuesday)
