  1. Lost Hills Association Annual membership meeting
  2. Patterson 2022 – Correction

Lost Hills Association Annual membership meeting.

The Annual membership meeting for the Lost Hills Association will be held this Saturday, September 17 on the field immediately after the USFFC awards.   That will be approximately 6:00.  We are required to hold a membership meeting once a year at the USFFC.
That being said, attendance has been dreadful for several years.  If we have another poor showing of members, the Board will discuss abandoning this requirement.

If you have issues regarding the field, membership, etc., if you can let me know ahead of time it would be helpful, but not mandatory.
