  • Just a reminder, for the most up-to-date information on our PHX Guild, refer to the blog. It’s updated the most frequently, and since not everyone does the social media thing, it’s the best place for me to devote efforts
    • The events calendar is up to date! Locations and times for upcoming events are listed on the Events page, as well as in the live calendar on the page.
    • IG is somewhat monitored – we try to post reminders, but with the new feed style, you might not see everything
    • FB – we are still having issues with Admin access, so it might not be the best place to get a hold of an officer
    • Emails are monitored pretty regularly if you have a question
  • Wee-treat class voting email was sent, missing a 4 responses as of Friday, voting will close April 1, and in the event of a tie, I’ll flip a coin. Once the class has been decided, there will be another email with supply information sent.
