July 2008 Minutes

Roger facilitated as Kurt was gone. We had a new person, Kelly Bishop.
All were pleased to see Don return and we missed Chris.

Old business

Roger reported we spent most of our treasury for t shirts. He displayed t-shirts, & all thanked Marc for a first-rate job. We discussed the upcoming convention in Denver where Bishop Hizer, Kurt and Roger will be among the speakers. We also covered our revised t-shirt sales strategy of posting hours so that we could hear more speakers.

We recapped Kurt’s idea of mentoring, assisting University seniors in engineering with their senior project. No one appears positioned to do that.

Dan reported that polo shirts are on hold. He may order some next year.

New business

Pam supplied more of her wonderful necklaces which the group greatly appreciated.

We discussed the upcoming convention in Denver where Bishop Hizer, Kurt and Roger will be among the speakers. We also covered our revised t-shirt sales strategy of posting hours so that we could hear more speakers.

We discussed various current Mars and space related news. Curtis graciously distributed some handouts, including a great NASA picture of Phoenix. He suggested after the meeting we make more t shirts with the present design and no date. We could consider this at our next meeting which will be after the convention.
