I was able to figure out the problem. I removed the default CURDATE() portion of the table.

dbDelta handles the upgrades without you needing to program specific alter statements.

    Well, to alter an existing table, you would have to use the ALTER TABLE
    statement, no? Or, delete the existing table first.
