Expect a lot of changes so please be familiar with the existing ones or bring them back with you next month to compare changes.
Lynette Rigsbee - Phone Tree:  Ken complimented her on the phone tree and let everyone know that they are trying to find a new machine but has been unsuccessful so far. It is very outdated and everything is going to computerized machines. Lynette will continue to check and report later.
Doug Lyon - DJ Coordinator:  Discussion was made about the first week of SOS in April and Claude said that he will be playing for free that weekend and the following weekend Doug Lyon and Raymond Rigsbee will split the door and time between them. Ken McDonald stated that just because there might not be a DJ playing on a Sunday night it doesn't mean to not come out to dance because someone will have music going in some fashion.
Ken McDonald announced that the club received a letter from the Susan G. Komen Foundation thanking the club for their contribution. The letter was read to the membership.
Ken McDonald stated that the club has received a letter from Ronnie Gregory asking for our representative at the ACSC Mid-Winter Workshop to support him for re-election to the SOS board.

Carlton Heath will be given this letter and will be TRSC representative and he will be given copies of any letters to review for re-election. Carlton will report back to the club next month as to how things went.
New member applications were read and accepted:
Denise Bonecelli - her sponsors are Jack & Roxanne Bond. They spoke a little about Denise and then the membership voted to accept her as a new member.
Jose and Jackie Miraya - Sylvia Anders is their sponsor and spoke a little about them and the membership voted them in as well.
A mention that John Incata has completed his application and paid his 2014 dues. He was a former member several years ago and everyone was excited that he is coming back. The membership voted and accepted John as a new member even though some thought he would be a re-up. But, he hasn't been in the club for several years so he is considered a new member.
Raymond Rigsbee stated that the Boogie on the Bend is scheduled for March 22nd which is a Saturday and everyone is invited.
At that time another member mentioned that a new beach band had approached them about coming to Attitudes and performing for the Twin Rivers Shag Club members. It was discussed and the membership felt it would be a good time to invite the public to possibly get some interest in the club and maybe some new members. A date was decided on as March 29th and after much discussion it was determined that a charge of $5.00 will be collected at the door. The Band said they would perform just for door proceeds.
Then there was much discussion on how to advertise this and get it out to the public. Radio was discussed as well as paper. Roxanne Bond will contact the new Beach Boogie and Blues station to see what they would charge to advertise it.
The new member Jose Miraya said he would be glad to set up a new Facebook Page for Twin Rivers Shag Club and have events listed and send it to all of the members for them to send to their friends to "Like" and it might get more exposure that way for the club. After much discussion the membership voted to have Jose go ahead with the Facebook Page and then the membership can list future events to get it out to the Social Media.
Ken McDonald then asked if anyone had anything they would like to bring to the floor and someone stated that in a prior meeting last year that the Roster would be available to all members to have and they were wondering when that would happen. Ken said he would get a copy and bring it to the next meeting after Juliet has finalized and updated it with the 2014 Members paid. Another member stated that they didn't want them lying around on tables for just anyone to pick up so Ken will have them with him and if you want one just ask and he will give you one.
Birthday people were mentioned for February and then the meeting was adjourned.
Lana H. Cieszko, Secretary
