Holy cow! Only one month to go until the start of the 2018 Type 3 Invasion.
Thanks for all the updates to the Invaders List.  Don't forget to pre-order
your Invasion t-shirts if you want to make sure you get the size you want.
Also make sure you RSVP with Marion for the various activities.

See everyone in a month..
