Raymond Rigsbee made a motion to suspend any further activity toward this fund-raiser. Julie Jones seconded. The motion passed. For the record, note that the club made a valiant effort but received zero responses. Harold Mozingo asked that a thank you be given to Doug Lyon and Jose Miraya for volunteering to take on the project.
Greg returned from the ACSC meeting with information regarding our bidding on hosting a workshop. Since you must do it far in advance, he will be bidding for us on hosting the 2019 Summer Workshop. He will make the ACSC committee aware at the next mid-winter meeting and we will officially present our bid at the next summer 2017 workshop which will be the 2nd week of July.
He said the clubs come prepared! They have members dressed in all kinds of costumes to sell their location. And, they have skits and other methods of trying to convince the committee that their location is the best.
Ann Brinson volunteered to help put this together.
