Regretfully, the 2007 SEMARA Tailgate has been canceled. Due to an oil spill on the property, much of the real estate is unavailable due to temporary storage of contaminated soil and a safe zone that needs to be maintained around the excavation site. The membership feels that it is too risky to invite guests under the current circumstances.
Please remember us next year as we hope to have this unfortunate event behind us.
