Competitive Event Pizza Parties

New for the 2016-2017 membership year, we are trying out pizza parties for paid members participating in competitive events.  Enjoy some pizza while preparing for your event.  This will be a great time to get tips from members who have previously competed in your event.  Officers will also be available to help you choose an event that you like, and provide suggestions to help you perform better in your event.
