In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, April and May 2021 events have been edited to include only virtual gatherings. You should probably assume that in-person gatherings listed for after June 2021 may NOT be happening, but it may be worth a call or email, as weather may permit outdoor gatherings.
We hope to be able to display more VIRTUAL events and hook-ins for these COVID times. If you have a group with at least one GMRHG member, that would welcome other guild members as visitors to your local ZOOM gatherings, please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
The Guild Board has scheduled a few virtual workshops for late fall/winter 2021-22. See Guild Events page.
