Dear NTCA Members,

We will be holding the “Montgomery” Board meeting on September 30th at 6:30 EST via Zoom and our annual Membership Meeting, also via Zoom, will be on Saturday, October 3 at 5:30 PM EST.

This will be the first time many of us are using Zoom on such a large scale and we are working to make this go as smoothly as possible.  In the coming weeks you will be notified of the procedure and the link with passcode needed to enter the meeting.

As we are approaching the next Board of Directors meeting please note that the deadline for new member applications is September 1st.  New member applications along with sponsor forms are to be sent to Nicky Conroy at or by USPS at 16 Rock Ridge Road, Newtown, CT  06470.  The applications must be sent in time to reach Nicky by September 1st.  This gives the Membership Committee only two weeks to review the applications before sending them on to the Board of Directors.  New applications will be reviewed by the BOD at the September 30th meeting.

I am very sorry to announce the passing of NTCA member Marget Johnson.  Marget passed away on August 12 after a long struggle with Parkinsons.  Before falling ill Marget was an active member and served as our Show Chair for a few years.  Her husband, Bill Matlock, said it was her wish that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the NTCA Rescue Fund.

Wishing you all good health during these uncertain times.
