Gerry Von Blohn reported that a banner is being made at Town Camera for our booth at the Early Bird expo. He requested that every shoot committee chairman write up a one page summary of how their shoot is run. That would make sure everyone manning the booth will have all the same info. Videos of shoots will be put on a DVD running on a loop and played at the expo.
Secretary Lingousky asked who will run the 50/50 raffle that will start in January. It was decided that a Sergeant at Arms will be appointed at each meeting who will run the raffle for that meeting. Tickets will be $1 each or 7 for $5.
Secretary Lingousky asked permission to take the aluminum cans collected in the Clubhouse to the Main Township collection bin that benefits the Main Township Police Department. The Boy Scouts used to take the cans, but no longer do so, so permission was granted to donate them to the police department.
President Jaskiewicz asked Secretary Lingousky to summarize the preceding Board meeting in which Gerry Von Blohn and Rod Bardo were appointed to the Board as Directors at large. This brings the Board to 8 members.
