Remember, if your pod is planning to submit your Great Pepper for Great Pepper of the year, I need this narrative in the next few days so that it will be included in the registration packet. There is not a form for this submission. Prepare a narrative about the accomplishments of your Great Pepper for the 2008-2009 Chili year. You can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have information that you would like included in the Great Pepper's meeting packet, you must get it to me before Sep 2.
This is a day without much news. It is not suppose to get above 100 for the first time in a week, and the grass grew in all of this heat, so I guess it is the day that we will need to work outside!
