The LCBA Summer Outing set for  Thursday, July 9  is quickly approaching.  Many members have yet to return their RSVP postcards.  Please return your postcard (yellow for general registration; blue for golf) no later than Monday, July 6 .   If you’ve lost your postcards,  you’ll find another set attached to this email.  Send them ASAP to Darin Luneckas, 3717 Center Point Road NE, Suite 100, Cedar Rapids,  Iowa  52402.

There is a terrific agenda planned, from the morning 3.25 hour CLE, to the afternoon bike and golfing events, to the evening supper and other festivities at Hunter’s Ridge Golf Course.  Please remember, members must have paid their LCBA  2008-2009 dues to attend Summer Outing activities.  Paid members may bring summer law clerks to Summer Outing events, but will be charged $15 per person for attendance at the evening Hunter’s Ridge supper.
