Hi Everyone,

This is a sad time for the San Diego Chapter. A very active and important member for over 40 years, Ralph Tuckfield, has passed away. He died peacefully at home on May 12, 2015 at 89 years of age. Ralph will be greatly missed. Ralph's daughter, Kara, is taking over his business. Ralph's obituary and guest book can be reached at:

In May Ralph Miyashiro talked about how to do a regulation when we don't have time for all 37 steps. Key areas for good regulation are key frame bedding, consistent hammer line with emphasis to key/hammer action ratio, jack/knuckle position, let-off/drop/aftertouch, repetition spring, repetition leveler height, and hammer action center. Much good information was exchanged. Thank you, Ralph, for an excellent class.

Paul McCloud talked some about the Denver PTG Council Meeting handbook and what items will be discussed by the PTG council. We will discuss them in more detail at the June meeting.

In June we will have election of officers, then have some shoptalk and/or questions, talk about websites and online scheduling. Everyone needs to attend. It won’t be a meeting without you.

San Diego Chapter is still discussing having our own website. Bring your ideas, comments, and suggestions to the next meeting.
