  5. Dinosaurs can Blog

    Not sure what a blog is but I am so impressed by the new TBARC web site I had to give it a try. Chris has done a fantastic job on this new web site and it is just another reason why TBARC is the growing vibrant club it is. If a member has not seen the value of their membership, then they are just not trying hard enough. Great programs, lots of hands on activities and a board of directors and committee chairs who are constantly working to make things better. Our growing diversity is also making us ...
