Upcoming General Meetings

These meetings are typically held every 3 months: Feb, May, Aug, and Nov on the 2nd Saturday of the Month at 7:30pm at the National City Depot. Visitors welcome! Join us at 5:30 for an optional no-host dinner at The Barbecue Pit Restaurant - 920 E. Plaza Blvd, National City (except quarterly - March, June, and December - where we do a potluck). For those not familiar with the area, it is located about 1 block east of Highland Ave and Plaza Blvd.  Plaza is an exit off of I-805 and you would go west.  You would get off at 8th St on I-5, cross National City Blvd and go to D St or Highland to make a right to go down two blocks to Plaza Blvd and then turn left or eastbound on Plaza Ave.

General Meetings are open and free to the public. Join us for our raffle at 7:15! Please plan on arriving by 6:45pm to get your raffle tickets, chat, and peruse the Gift Shop.
