Meeting called to order by President Candi Gerard at 6 pm.
Secretary Report: 5 people signed up for a shuttle ride to Marysville Rock and Gem Show, Saturday, October 7th. I placed calls and have confirmed with all 5 riders. Shuttle is FREE, so is the show. // Have we received any more phone calls on the mall phone? Yes, it is being used and worth the $20/ 90 days expense.
Treasurer: not present, but all receipts have been submitted to Deb.
Vests are available for purchase! $25 for members (the club is subsidizing the cost.) Currently there are (4) Medium, (10) Large, (10) XL, and (5) XXL. Bring cash or check to the next open meeting on Monday, October 16th to purchase yours! Other sizes can be obtained, but a shipping fee may apply. Thanks Bonnie, for making this happen!
RRR: it’s happening on the 21st! 10 am – 5 pm, Pioneer Pavilion in Ferndale. Doors open at 8 am for vendors to set up. Tear down is from 5-6 pm. Each space is 10′ wide, 8′ deep. Bring your own tables, chairs will be provided. We had a small discussion about advertising efforts. Next Door, Facebook, Craigslist, personal social media, etc.
We discussed options and possibilities to help the club auction on Monday, November 20th, run smoothly. Talked about having higher-end equipment and items on a silent auction table to keep the manual bids moving along. Trevor volunteered his house as a drop-off point prior to November, and for folks who can’t make it to the auction.
Donations for the auction should be brought to the Pioneer Pavilion by 6 pm. Bidder registration will happen from 6-6:30 pm, to allow ample time to run the auction.
If possible, please mark donated items with locale, and suggested retail price. This will help us group the items together in reasonable lots.
October Theme: OPALS, bring your best example for show ‘n’ tell. See everyone on the 16th at the next meeting!
Finally, friendly reminders:
1. Dogs not allowed in the Pioneer Pavilion.
2. To use the lap room on Thursdays nights, please sign up and pay the $10 fee by Tuesday.
3. It’s time to renew dues for 2024 – bring $20 cash or check to the next meeting, or pay in the mall shop.
