Anyone near Indianapolis?

Anyone near Indianapolis?

Post by solarchat » Tue Dec 23, 2014 2:47 pm

Do we have anyone near Indianapolis that can do a couple school events for the program?

Jon, the owner of Feathertouch/Starlight Instruments has requested that I come up there for a couple schools but I explained to him that I cant drive my van that far from Atlanta.

so, anyone nearby that wants to go do a little outreach?

It's too far for me too, but, if there is any way in which I can support it I will...

Not Indianapolis, but Columbus. I could do it, it's only a couple of hours drive. Seriously! Send me details. timothy_winship@msn.com

Shoot, didn't notice this was from December--still need somebody?
