All the behind-the-scenes negotiations concluded, our Carnival venue is now firm (thanks to the Health Dept. and NOT the convention center), we can officially release the Feb. 2022 newsletter. Thank you for your patience.

We have 11 pages this month. Lots of extras: three Rookie profiles, more in the photo essay, very simple trivia, and the 2022 calendar on pages 7-9. It is an imaginative look at the monsters in our National Parks, including the Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce. It may say 1955, but the dates are actually for 2022. The calendar is best viewed at full size (or bigger) to appreciate the clever work on this item. It is for sale elsewhere, but Jim Giese assures me we won’t be sued for plagiarism.

Keep selling tickets, and enjoy the Parade and Carnival on the 19th.
