By-Laws Revision  
As you may know, our amending our bylaws has been a project that has spanned the past few years.  Per the process outlined in our current bylaws, the board has approved this proposed revision and now the general club membership will have the same opportunity.  Each adult student and the parent/guardian of each minor student is allowed one vote. The biggest changes have been to reduce the size of the board.   
We will vote before the club shiai on June 15th.
