You might have noticed a conspicuous lull in the blogging as of late. Now that myself and my editorial board have started school, other far more fun things have begun to fall by the wayside. But never you fear, faithful readers! We're still here and we'll still keep you up-to-date on all the interesting goings-on in the Great Plains. In the meantime, there are a few dates you should keep in your calendars--exciting things are afoot!
