July Meeting Minutes

       The July meeting of HPMS was called to order at 7:00 P.M., 2 July.  There were 12 Attendees.  The meeting minutes of the June meeting were read noting corrections E-mailed to members by the chapter president.  The minutes were approved by the membership.

Old Business

       The subject of a club pin was brought to the floor.  This is still open as Tom Clark has not had a chance to research the matter.

       Trophies for the 2018 chapter show and contest was discussed.  The alternate vendor that was mentioned by Skip has not been researched.  This did not seem to be a pressing issue as we still have the vendor we used in 2017 available and short turn-around time would not be a problem.  There was mention regarding the design and material for 'Best of Show' trophies.

       The chapter did not participate in Hamacom this year as we were not contacted by that event.

New Business

       The matter of preparations for the 25 August show and contest was discussed.  Basically an inventory of supplies for the show will be conducted replenished as required.  The usual SOP is in place, set-up will be Friday, 24 August beginning at 1: P.M. at the JC Building.  A recent E-mail indicated that we had 55 tables sold.  The question of the insurance certificate from the national IPMS was broached, but that should arrive shortly before the show date.

      The subject of support for the IPMS chapter in Porto Rico brought up.  There appeared to be some question as to whether we did opt to send a donation.

      The July build night will be 16 July. 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at The Deep Comic Book and Game store.
