The subject of the 2018 show and contest was discussed.  There was discussion regarding the 25 August 2018 date.  The final outcome of which we will confirm the 25 August date with the JC building management and may stay with an August date for the foreseeable future.  A point of disseminating the contest and show information on the IPMS website as soon as possible was brought up.  This then prompted the question of a vendor coordinator and Skip volunteered to take the tasking.  At a recent IPMS national event the IPMS national event coordinator was contacted and the 25 August 2018 date was open.  

The subject of contest trophies for any future show and contest was brought to the floor.  The use of medallions in out 2017 show was considered to be better then the paper certificated of 2016.  The product of this discussion was that we may want to vary the type and nature of our trophies from year to year, cost being a factor.

The subject of special categories for the 2018 show was brought up but this subjected is tabled till the November meeting.  

The status of the Jaycee's building was discussed with the overall view being that it will around for a while based on construction taking place around it and some financial considerations on the part of the city.
