***IMPORTANT NOTICE:  JUNE 18th MBA FIELD DAY CANCELATION*** 

I regret to announce that the June 18th MBA Field day has been cancelled.  The Lewis farm in Austin has recently received an extraordinary amount of rain, their yard is a mess and Adam will not be able to accommodate the MBA field day.  Instead of pushing the field day back to a later date or relocating the event, the board has decided it might just be best to postpone the MBA field day until next year.  Everyone is just so tired of this spring.  The Lewis family is open to host this event next year, third time is a charm.   I hope this […]
