Meeting Minutes for August 2013

All:

On August 25, 2013 we had our regular monthly meeting, with six members in attendance. Mark, who had attended the convention, was unable to make it, as he was at a tweet-up for MAVEN! We are looking forward to hearing more about that at the next meeting.

We discussed the moon day activities, as well as the convention, and our T-shirt sales. All of our t-shirts did sell, but with the new, higher prices from Zazzle, our existing price of $25 left us with only a narrow profit to spend on club activities. We will probably need to look for other vendors or raise prices next year. It also might make sense to go for a full 50 shirts to get the discount, as we sold out the 40 we got without even any sales to the local chapter (which also means I need to order online to keep my collection complete!).

We also discussed how to get our compilation of past Mars Society papers going again, and I think we have a plan! It is good to see us setting out on this project again.

This was my first Mars Society meeting after a missing several (the monthly meeting, Moon Day, and the national convention) while I mended from surgery. It was good to be back with everyone!

Till next month!
