Sorry I was late. I got overcommitted. Therefore the minutes currently donít have anything about what the treasurer said about our financial status, or the actual action leading to the election of officers for 2018. Please feel free to suggest additions or corrections.
[Everett Kaser: I believe Greg said the club currently had a little over $1800 in the club account.]

Thanks and Plaudits
Ron Lee and Greg Johnson were thanked for their work in pulling off a great Willamette Open tournament this year. Mike Storrs received a thundering ovation for his stellar work in guiding our club for the last three or more years. Nate Sexton, who made a cameo appearance tonight, was roundly applauded for his impressive victory at the US Disc Golf Championship.
Sean announced that he will propose a new meeting venue for consideration.
Mike Storrs had questions and ideas for using social media for our communication as a community of disc golfers. Using Facebook is a bit too public. There is a need to for "in-house" conversations. The use of a server was suggested by John Ross. Nate cited use of both Facebook as a public face and then private groups through Facebook for users admitted to a group, e.g. WDGC members page. Converting conversations into ìproductî has been a frustration to Mike. Everett Kaser suggested that groups.io is a newer improved version of Yahoo groups that could serve our needs.
[Everett Kaser: I had already created/reserved the https://groups.io/g/wdgc "group name" on Groups.io last month, so it's available for evaluation and is reserved in case the club decides it wants to go that way.]
Richard Hervey proposed a working group of Everett Kaser, himself, and Sean Delohery to come up with concrete proposals for our use of social media at the next club meeting. The others agreed to work with him.
Adair Greenskeeper (Shawn) (no report).
Willamette Handicap (Aric). Currently has been inactive partly due to Aricís illness.
Willamette Greenskeeper (Billie) Concern for the down trees on hole 13 and elsewhere was expressed. City Parks has been resistant to the club taking matters into their own hands. Billie will need to converse again with them.
Wilder Park in Newport is relocating. Club proposed a 250 dollar gift to sponsor a hole on the new course. This was approved. There is a new 9 hole course at S. Beach State Park.
Note: next monthís meeting will begin at 6 PM.
Respectfully submitted, Bob Burton, secy.
