JRBF – Spring Meeting – Howardsville, VA – May 19th, 4 PM. @ Howardsville, VA
May 19 @ 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

The annual JRBF Spring Meeting will be held on Sunday May 19th at 4pm in Howardsville.

We will not be having the meeting at lunch at the Tavern as we have for the past several years, but rather will be in Howardsville later in the afternoon.  Hopefully this gives folks time to work on their boats, float the river, or otherwise use their time on Sunday.
