Review of 23 November 99 Meeting
Mason District Governmental Center 
6507 Columbia Pike 
Falls Church, VA

Below is the group photo of most of the 30 people who made it to our November meeting. This was before eating the Thanksgiving turkey, imagine what they looked like afterwards!


This month we didn't attempt to have much of a business session, just an unsuccessful attempt to draft a volunteer to look after planning programs for the Virginia meetings.

The first program for the evening was a presentation on Loctite products. Scott Harry from Loctite was on hand with his complete road show.

Scott gave a very useful talk, complete with slides, about using Loctite
products and answered many questions from club members.

He also brought along lots of catalogs and literature, which were
voraciously consumed by all of us "high volume" Loctite users. :-)
