There will be nibbles provided by your Committee, 

it will be BYO, so bring your favourite drink (and a glass).

This is your time for meeting other artists in the Taupo region and finding out what is going on, who is doing what and passing on tips and techniques. 

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS EVENT, TAC IS FUNDING IT, OUR INTENTION IS TO HOLD THIS ON THE 2ND WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH BUT WE NEED YOUR ENTHUSIASM!
