WisARP Spring Meeting Cancelled

Featured

The WisARP Spring Meeting in LaCrosse on Saturday March 28th 2020 is cancelled due to the Corona Virus. Besides the logical reasons to stay safe, our venue has fallen under the quarantine rules. Those who registered will be refunded.

The board will be posting content here with hopes to make up for the lack of said meeting. Plans are being made for our Fall meeting.
