There was also discussion regarding proper installation of the raisers on the table legs with agreement that the raisers needed to be installed properly to insure a stable platform for model display.
The issue of relations between the chapter and vendors was discussed. There were some ideas brought forth, but it was decided to table this discussion until early next year.
A motion was made to donate $100.00 to the Toys for Tots drive. This action was approved by the attending personnel.
The chapter annual dinner was discussed. The problems with the quality of service at the establishment where last years dinner was held at were mentioned and it was decided that new location be found for this years dinner. Location and other details to follow. The eatery El Coyote was suggested.
Nominations for the functionary posts within the chapter were discussed. As it appears right now Ed will remain president and Dave will continue to function as treasure. Tom Clark has stated he will not hold any office for this year and I have agreed to move into the secretary position. The VP position is still in question as it is not known if our current VP will want to continue as VP. Any voting on position will be accomplished at the December meeting.
