Unfinished Business:


New Business:

Chris Courtwright suggested we start a 50/50 to generate club income.  There was some discussion about what could prohibit us from having a fundraiser like a 50/50.  It was pointed out that many other clubs have 50/50’s regularly.  It was decided that the fall would be a good time to begin as our attendance is down during the summer.


Rick Hudak distributed a handout, which shows places to dig or mine for gems and minerals in N. Carolina.


Meeting was adjourned and we had our “Chinese auction” and a bit of “show and tell” time.
