August 2014 Meeting – Notes

General Business
On what turned out to be a very tropical day (including a few dramatic rainstorms), 36 members, 2 guests and 10 children (for a total of 48 persons) met at the lovely home of Dan & Terri. Luckily, they had the foresight to put up the club tent (and a couple other pop-up canopies), since we needed the shade before the business portion of the meeting and needed the shelter from the rain for the rest.
