May 2009

1. Opening Pledge of Allegiance was lead by Chip

2. Minutes and Financial reports for April were reviewed and approved.

3. An upgrade was requested by the club to the web site to be able to sell items. Per Josh, that shouldn’t be a problem and Mike will be working on it. It was discussed that because of the website, if a member “Googles” their name, it will show up on the search. The only way to avoid that is to have your name removed off the website.

4. Ephriam gave an update on the Ambulance Project. Engine and drive train are out of the vehicle. The overall project is slow going, but its still moving forward. Ephriam again asked if any member would like to take home a small part of the ambulance and work on it, that would be helpful.

5. Report was given about the Pony Express Trail Camp out. Thanks was given to both Jerry and George for selecting a great site. There were 7 to 8 jeeps, a couple of duce’s and several campers. Several families attended and a great time was had by all. It was noted that although there was a “hot shower” on scene for everyone to use, no one wanted to give it a “star” rating.
