A quick note to RISG members..

Hi to all
We began this blog as an online presence and an additional way to let both our members and the community keep up with our 'goings on'.  Occasionally, a spinner will contact us about membership after finding us online.  If any member has something that they would like to post, please let me know.  I can either post for you, if you are unfamiliar with blogging, or can give you permission to post.  You can always contact us via our yahoo group.
