A Look Into November, 2017

The ice scraper never leaves my car, but this is the time of the year where it simply moves from the backseat to the front seat.  The fluffy stuff that came down didn’t last too long here, but I am sure there will be more of it to come.

This weekend will be the MSCA Class Championships.  Suit and tie are not needed for this one, class refers to the rating category you are in  The registration page has been updated to the classes.  Click here to register while you can still get in at the early rate before it is too late.

The following weekend, the Castle will feature something called the “Money Quads” on the 18th, The SCA is also in full swing with their season Priyanka Open with an all girls section, along with grade based rated sections.

A TCCL team can still be formed, but this will be the last month a team can be entered.  TCCL will meet on Friday, November 17th.  This has been your Look Into November, 2017.  Thank you for your time, stay warm.
