Trophies and Fundraiser discs

I plan to get out to Adair today with fundraiser discs, maybe collect some registrations and do a little course marking and remeasuring of some temp holes.

I was just playing around with the Calendar function here.  It's pretty straightforward.  It's easy to add a link to a local file (like the PDF entry form for Festivus).  This should be very useful for things like course maps, course changes planning and voting, etc.  It's pretty cool.  I'm glad you guys set this up.  I like Facebook as the community dialogue place with Groups.io as our nuts and bolts club work space.

Hey all,
Let's shoot for 10am tomorrow (Monday).  Richard, let me know in advance how many Peaveys you've rounded up and I'll try to match drivers to the tools.

Yeah, I could do Monday morning after I take kids to school.  9AM or so?  Whatever works for you.

the appeal to the SouthTown list serve came up with a peavey as well.  Let me know when you need it and I'll pick it up and deliver.

Bill,

I've sent out a query about borrowing a peavey or two to the South Town list serve.  It would be something if we could move the Southtown community into helping us with the course.

Is a peavey something that the City is likely to have?  I'm guessing that they would loan us one or more if they have it.

VotingMembers, but I don't have the membership list yet from Greg,
so I haven't added current members into that group yet.

But, these days, I find most acoustics horrible. Sounds just seemed
to 'echo' in the space, which makes my poor hearing even worse.
One day soon I'll probably be getting hearing aids. :-(

Re: Testing - but not a test - Membership Renewals?

Richard Hervey
 

Thank you Everett and Greg for getting the ball rolling regarding how Tunison worked as a meeting space. 

1) I noted that it had a very fast Wifi connection - something we might find useful if we expand what we do in meetings.
2) I noted that we were next to a park, which would allow events associated with meetings much of the year.
3) While the space was on the big side for our numbers, that space could be used for some mini event before and after meetings.
4) We were able to work out issues with alcohol and pizza.
5) The City has agreed to make it available for free.

As for :
A) Lack of tables - that was intentional on my part.  My limited experience of club meetings is that they are filled with side conversations often on separate topics, slowing progress toward completion of the specified topic.  Eventually, I'd love to get us into meeting in a circle chair arrangement, where those conversations feel impolite (which I believe they already are) and are difficult to conduct - producing more effective meetings.  [[My hope is that folks would get into coming early or staying late to conduct those side conversations.]]

B) Acoustics - I concur that they were not great.  Yet, I have conducted meetings with 67 and 100+ people in that space and people were heard. The ability to hear certainly would have been better had I not employed a projector.  [[Were we meeting in a circle, I suspect this comment would not have carried this weight.]]  In comparison to Woodstocks, I find it surprising that Everett considers the acoustics HORRIBLE.

C) I note that Aric was able to attend and stay for the whole meeting.

Which was why I proposed a "two-month grace period" at the beginning
of the year, effectively shifting our "membership period" from
March 1 to Feb 28/29.  We wouldn't TELL anyone that was when
membership rolled over, we still say Jan 1 to Dec 31, but it would
give us a two month period at the beginning of the year when we
would still have an active voting quorum, during which we could
hound members for their renewals.

The table situation is fixable, but with my "hearing deficit," I
found the acoustics HORRIBLE.  You, John Ross, and Shawn Berry were
the only ones I could understand well.  I had a REAL hard time
understanding Richard and Sean.
