CLUB SHOWS 2013
LIST YOUR CLUB'S SHOW HERE AND BE SEEN!
It's OK to list only the date of your show, if that's all you have right now. These listings are not permanent. Things happen and sometimes things change. The info can be added/updated as needed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will update your listing.
I receive a lot of emails daily, so please put MIRCP or your club name in the subject title. It will grab my attention in the sea of emails!
