COVID Information: Masking and/or vaccination is not required by either the Chapter or by Harris County at the present time. Those who attend in person are encouraged to protect themselves as they in consultation with their medical advisors deem best, whether that be vaccination, masking, or prophylactic medicines and/or nutritional supplements (adverse outcomes from the virus are strongly related to deficiencies in Vitamin D3). We ask that you remain at home if you are running a fever over 99.6F or are suffering any symptoms of respiratory illness. Take care and see you there!

There will be no refreshments provided at this meeting although you are welcome to bring your own or purchase drinks from the county’s vending machine. Please note that some members have objected to the consumption of food and beverages in a group setting but the Chapter has not taken a position on that at this time. We will attempt to conclude our business by 7:30 and then those who wish may adjourn to a local restaurant for refreshment and continued conversation on a ‘Dutch treat’ basis.

Our next regularly scheduled meeting following this one will be our annual business meeting on Tuesday, December 14th; same time and place. Looking forward to seeing you then, too!

Zoom Meeting Info: Please note that at present we are limited to a maximum of 40 minutes via Zoom, so the Zoom meeting will open at 6:15 p.m. and close about 30 minutes later. We will do our best to schedule any business requiring votes during this window. After the Zoom meeting closes we will be looking at recent space news and events presented by Doug Hall.

Eric Bowen is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
