PLEASE checks the classes and clubs that are listed in the area where you live and let Stacy know by filling out the little form whether there should be changes, deletions, or corrections.  Please really use this link when they travel or move and she can only keep it correct and current with everyone's help.  Just click on the link, go to your city/state/country and see if the listings are correct or if you are in a class that isn't listed.  Perhaps your instructor doesn't get the newsletter (and you need to tell them to get it by sending me an email to tkandr@aol.comand I'll add them.  LOL) or times and days have changed.  It will only take a second to check and Stacy and I would REALLY appreciate it.  Be sure and do it through the form, though, because that goes directly to her.  Thanks a bunch.
