NOTICE

The MWOTRC will follow all local and federal government directives regarding public gatherings and will announce meeting cancellations in as timely a manner as possible. Please check back frequently for status updates.

Upcoming Meetings

As you all know, we cannot gather for a in-person meetings. Having seen that Major League Baseball's various networks are airing classic games while the 2020 season is suspended, we've decided to do something similar.

Through the courtesy of former MWOTRC President Fred Berney and his Satellite Media Productions, we can revisit some meetings from the recent past.

Our choice for April is the club's performance of a brand new LONE RANGER script written by our own Jack French. The circumstances surrounding the creation of this script are covered in the introduction. This meeting took place in January 2014. Here is the link:

Our July meeting has been CANCELLED. Instead, we will have another virtual program on July 10 at 7:30 pm.


MANC 2020 Has been Cancelled

Martin Grams has announced that, "After much discussion and careful deliberation, we made the difficult decision to cancel the September 2020 convention. Our top priority has always been your health, safety, and well-being. With so much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this is the only way to protect all of our annual convention attendees, vendors and speakers. Though this decision was not easy to make, we believe it is the right one.

As soon as we have dates for the 2021 event, we will post them on the website.

All celebrities, seminars and guest speakers have been carried over to 2021, but expect a number of changes/revisions later, especially after the first of the year."
